X220 full recovery not possible, recovery partition intact

After installing clean Win7 I am unable to recover to factory although my recovery partition is fine. I presume I should fix the original MBR (Intel SSD 160)? How can I reenable full factory recovery?

 

ThinkVantage button and F11 work perfectly, but on the last step (FINISH button) the system says "recovery has been removed from this machine". 

 

 

Of course, if it's possible to get a registry/system patch/config file/services layout instructions or something from the original burned-in installation so to copy it's batter performance, I'd love to have  a link Smiley Happy

 

 

Thank you.

Re: X220 full recovery not possible, recovery partition intact

Hi and welcome to the forum!

 

Check this out:-

 

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS013955

 

"This package does not support Rescue and Recovery version 4.3 which is for Windows 7 operating system. If you encounter the problem in Windows 7, please re-install Rescue and Recovery 4.3. It could also re-enable the F11 function."

 

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-4Q2QAK

It might or might not work, you can use the recovery media you created in any case.

 

Hope this helps.

It did not work. There is no option to either create recovery disks from hidden partition, nor recover after F11.

In that case, contact lenovo support to get the recovery media.
