No recovery disks available

I have quite a problem. By installing Windows 7 I've destroyed hard disc partition with recovery software. I've recovered Vista from backup, but I've lost ability to do full factory recovery. Also, I do not have any Vista rescue and recovery discs and it is unavailable to purchase disks from Lenovo in Lithuania. Maybe anyone have any solutions  for this problem? Thank you.

Re: No recovery disks available

Just wondering how you got on with the above, I'm in the same situation, looks like you didn't get a flood of responses, what was the end run on this for you ?

Re: No recovery disks available

I've called to local IBM servise (In Lithuania it does Lenovo job Smiley Happy ) and they told me that if I take my laptop to them they will restore all discs. But I've never made it there - I've got Windows 7 installed and don't want to go back to Vista. Smiley Happy
