To recover the hard disk to it's original contents, do the following:
1. If the optical drive is not attached to your ThinkPad computer during recovery, DVD software and CD-recording software will not be installed. To ensure that they will be installed correctly, attach your ThinkPad computer to the X4 Dock and install the optical drive in the Ultrabay Slim before performing a recovery ioperation.
2. The recovery process might take up to 2 hours.
Attention: All of the files on the primary hard disk partition (usually drive C) will be lost in the recovry process. However, before any data is overwritten you will be give the opportunity to save one or more files to other media.
Power the computer using the AC adapter and ensure a fully charged battery is installed before proceeding.
1. If possible, save all your files and shutdown your operating system.
2. Turn off the computer for at least 5 secounds.

4. Click Restore your system.
5. Click Restore my hard drive to the original factory state and then click Next.

7. When the recovery process finishes, press the Enter key. Your computer will restart with the pre-installed operating system, drive, and software.
