Can't Uninstall Lenovo Rescue and Recovery

Hi, I would like to upgrade Rescue and Recovery to the current version of 4.21, but to do that I need to install my version 3.01.0037. The problem is that I can't uninstall that version. When I try to in the Control Panel, it give me a message that says: "The installed product does not match the installation source(s). and asked me to browse to locate the installation source. I downloaded the install file for my version, but it is a .exe file named with a bunch of letters and numbers, and when I hit "browse" it will only look for a .msi file named Rescue and Recovery - Client Security Solution

    I tried that. didn't work. I called tech support and they said there are problems when uninstalling this program when sp3 is installed. My computer had other problems so I ended up rebuilding it and I was able to uninstall the original version and install 4.21 before I installed sp3.

    Same here - 


    I want to upgrade to a more current version of Rescue and Recovery and avail of the new additions of the newer Client Security Solution edition. To do so I need to uninstall the Rescue and Recovery - Client Security Solution with version of 3.01.0037.00 of Rescue and Recovery, but the uninstall function of the 'Add/Remove Windows Programs' can't find the .msi in the original setup files. No unistall, no upgrade!! 


    Frustrating!

    I too have the same problem. As per the solution provided in the beginning of the thread I don't want re-image my OS, just to avoid the headache of re-installing everything and updates.



    In addition my rescue and recovery doesn't work either. So I am running my TP without RnR. :-(

The exe file you downloaded is a self-extracting package - you need to run it to extract the files.

I think i know what happened. Windows Upgrade Advisor by the name itself it means that there has to be an older version present on teh system to be UPGRADED. Have you tried installing WIN7 with OKR v6.0 then downloading OKR v7.0 try not uninstalling the OKR v6.0

>I chose not to charge you for rhis since this is more of a suggestion than a resolution... i would like to know what happened after trying this, i would greatly appreciate your comment on this, thanks!

Laptop is not getting booted


Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. Might be a defective hdd aswell, in this case to make sure you can run a DFT test, www.google.com -> Look up for " Test DFT " ( Drive fitness tool from hitachi, will make an hardware diag if hdd failure - error code 0x00 = everything fine, other code = Issue - You can look up for accurate code explanation on hitachi website ) thanks and have a nice day J-
