How to restore to factory setup X220 Tablet! HElp!

Hi guys, my friend just accidentally installed fresh copy of windows 7 in my X220 tablet.

Is there any way I can restore my tablet to factory setting. I tried to use the ThinkVantage button when it is booting. But it does not recognize the recovery media.

Please help me!!

The X220 User Guide will walk you through the steps to restore if you have the Recovery Set DVDs:


You can create a set of Factory Recovery DVDs by using ThinkVantage Tools.  You can download TVTs here if you don't have them:
