Lenovo Win7Pro OEM Recovery Media

#1 Post by Annecy » Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:33 pm

There's a TP.c ForumThread offering recovery "media" ~
some for free ... some for a (nominal) fee ...

After about 3days (not consecutively) overcoming obstacles
Failed DVD MultiBurnerIII, a corrupted/failed recovery burn
& Lenovo's (attempt @) restricting the RecoveryMediaBurn to ONE TIME :BAAAD!:)
I FINALLY/successfully burned the Lenovo Win7 OEM Recovery/Reinstall Media ... from my T61p ...
(There are "workarounds" to Lenovo's attempted 1-time creation restriction
posted around the WWW ...
I, however, came up with my own "work-around" :thumbs-UP:

I also/then created/'dubbed" iso files from the burned RecoveryMedia ...

I also/then did a successful/test reinstall ... on the originating T61p ...

Lenovo asserts that the RecoveryMedia will only work on the source/originating machine ... :BAAAD!:
however, that may ... or (maybe) may NOT be the case ...
Eventually I will attempt some test recovery installs ...
on other ThinkPads ... including my T61 14.1"ws ...

Anyway ...
I do not (atm) have the bandwidth/time to upload the iso files ...
I could/would ,,, for a nominal fee of $15+costs (e.g., media/mailing ...)
burn recovery media/discs ...
and mail them out ... to anyone ...
who needs/wants (to try) them :idea: :santa: :beer:
