help: problems of recovery of my new t400

2008-09-25, 4:12 AM
I received my new lenovo t400 today and I started to install softwares. However one software leads my computer to be black out, my computer just can't get started into vista. Then I tried to use the recovery disc which came with the laptop today without noticing that the recovery disc is an win xp. So, at last my operation system turned to XP and I'm freaking out.  So, anybody knows how to turn it back to vista? I've already try the thinkvantage button to recover it again, but it is still xp. I know this is ridiculous, but anybody can help me?

call Lenovo support, and tell them that you don't know the recovery media (improperly labelled) is XP thinking it was Vista recovery, and now you don't have Vista so need a recovery media sent to you, do it ASAP otherwise Lenovo will charge you nominal service/delivery charge for them.

Thanks for your help, Lenovo agreed to send me the recovery media for free. That's great
