My cursory ForumSearch did not find anything "on topic" ...
So maybe this post will be the first such "on topic" post :arrow:


The HDD (originally) in my new/used T61p has
a LenovoRecovery Partition ...
The embedded wim file is > 7gb ...
and > 15gb when "extracted" ...

My DVD burner would not burn this Weekend ...
SO ... this Weekend I could not (for the fun of IT) ...
put the LenovoRecovery material/s onto disc/s ...

Also "for the fun of IT" ... I searched the WWW
about how to covert such a large wim
to smaller ... directly burnable ISO files ... and found:

How to Convert a WIM File to an ISO File
&
7Forums: How to convert a windows WIM file to a ISO file
is a(nother) post of mine ...
that seemingly/"inexplicably" ...
disappeared ... off the face of the Earth :??: :roll: :parrot:

You are so right!
A Google search pulled up the thread, but when I clicked on it, I get the following message: "The requested topic does not exist."

Personally I do not know what happened. Perhaps one of the Admins has an idea.

This is what a Google Search pulls up:
