Create USB Stick Recovery?

Hi

 

I have a x220t and want to create the recovery images. 

As I dont have a DVD drive, I'd like to create a bootable USB stick with the recovery images on it.

 

Is there any tutorial to do this? Would be greaaaaaat!


Thanks

 

James

In Lenovo thinkvantage tools go to factory recovery disks. Plug in your usb (16Gb) and it will do the rest. Remember that you can create factory usb recovery flash drive only once.

 

Don't ask me why.
