ThinkPad T530 Recovery?

#1 Post by KhakiBlueSocks » Sat Jun 29, 2019 8:35 am

Hi everyone! I'm new here, so please forgive me if this is in the wrong section and let me know for future reference. Also, please forgive any grammar mistakes, as this is my first time typing on a forum in a LONG time. I mean LONG time.

Anyway, I recently bought a used Lenovo Thinkpad T530 ("Takeru")from my local computer recycling business. This is my 3rd used ThinkPad and I love this one to pieces! (I also own a x230 Tablet named "Izzy" and a R61 named "Joe"--catch the theme here? :lol: )

Anyway, when I bought "Takeru", it only had a fresh install of Windows 10 Home on it and none of the included software or drivers. It was operational, but it feels like I'm missing out on a few things with regards to the functionality of the laptop. I tried going onto the website and eventually I did get the drivers for the laptop, but part of me still wants to go ahead and get a restore disk for this computer so I can have it should I want to go full-factory and have all the classic drivers. Is there a place where I can get the recovery disk or an image of the disk itself?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: AND...upon further review, it seems as though I accidentally posted this in the wrong section. I didn't realize there was a section specifically for the T430/530's. Please forgive me and move this thread to the appropriate location.
"Izzy" - ThinkPad x230 Tablet
"Joe" - ThinkPad R61
"Takeru" - ThinkPad T530

Notice a theme Here? I love ThinkPads...and Digimon. But mostly Digimon. :mrgreen:

I have images of the DVDs created with "create recovery media" of a Windows 7 Pro T530 I briefly worked on. Let me know if you want me to share those.
