How to upgrade ThinkPad from Win 7 to Win 8 with recovery disks


I wish to upgrade my ThinkPad laptop, which is running Windows 7, to Windows 8 but I don't know how.


The following tip is applicable only if you have a Windows 8 recovery disc set. You can contact call centre to get a set of it provided your system does support Windows 8. (Note: fee may apply)


These instructions are available only in print copies shipped wiht the recovery sets.






Also, check Lenovo Support site about Windows 8 support includes installation, supported systems and programs, upgrade/downgrade, etc.
