T420 Running Slow & need 64bit Recovery

#1 Post by Tweever » Thu Mar 22, 2018 5:10 am

Folks - I have a T420 running W7 32 bit. Running slow for first 5 mins then fine. Checked out all ususal suspects indexing / startup programs etc but no joy. Clean install of W7 32 bit ok for a few days until it happened again probably after a W7 update was installed. I suspect it is something to do with updates!!

Does anyone have a set of original Lenovo W7 64bit recovey and driver DVD’s that I could obtain to fully rebuild my T420 ? The lappy was originally supplied with W7 64bit but the original recovery partition is not present.

Any help appreciated. Thanks, David.

Many thanks that’s really helpful and truly appreciated- I will download later tonight :)

If by any chance someone has an original Lenovo recovery set for the T420 lurking around and would like to sell or donate them please do PM me as it would be great to have the originals Cheers,D.

Burn CDs/DVDs of those ISOs and you'll be grand.
No need for originals.

In fact, the original set I got from Lenovo are merely DVD R discs that were burned, then had an ink label stamped on them...
