you can download somewhere but i don't think your serial will work on downloaded windows systems.

cause microsoft provides special version of windows for lenovo.

 

contact lenovo support line and ask for recovery dvds.( lenovo may charge you )

It will work if you get an OEM version I did the testing with a cleaner Windows XP Home OEM version (that laptop comes with Windows XP Home too) and it work flawlessly.
