    Lenovo Recovery Media Available (Free Download)

    Lenovo owners with new / in warranty pc, now have option to download recovery media for free (one time download)

    back in the day, you had to purchase from lenovo a multi cd set if you lost your harddrive / failure

    if you have a new machine, head over to lenovo support and down load your recovery media for free
    before it goes out of warranty

    You and anyone else would need to check if your pc qualifies on the lenovo site

    I simply listed that the recovery media is available for free download for qualifying pc's (new and in warranty}

    Its always nice to have the recovery media ...here is a way to get it free

    from what I noticed, the pc needs to be:

    1) new models
    2) under the first year's warranty
    3) recovery media will be what ever OS came on the PC new

    goto support site, click access recovery media

    follow instructions on lenovo site

    (I have no way of knowing if your pc qualifies)

    I have my OEM recovery discs around here somewhere...

    For both my T430s and T470s I used my server and their SCCM package to make recovery images that are always up-to-date and tweaked how I want. Allows me to get rid of their factory recovery partition, too, which are usually around 16-19 gigs.
