X61s - unable to access Rescue and Recovery from boot

Is there any other way to access the R&R from boot? and what's the unattend answer file anyway?

I'm trying to go to rescue and recovery from boot because my windows wouldn't load.


It shows this message: "Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:Windows\Panther]unattend.xml]. The answer file is invalid"


I want to reinstall windows anyway so I tried going to the R and R page from boot: pressing the Thinkvantage button when it say "to interrupt normal setup... etc." I pressed the button and the message disappears, but it doesn't lead to the R & R page, it just starts windows normally. F8 leads only to more options of loading windows, like safe mode, etc. but non of them works because of the "unattend answer" file.


How do I go to R&R if not through the thinkvantage button?

What is unatend answer file anyway?
