You will need to use another computer and download Kaspersky rescue disk. After downloading the disk image burn it to a cd and boot the machine with this disk. Run the rescue disk and it will detect the infected files. When the program if finished select remove all infected files and reboot your computer. You also need to either install a good antivirus program or update the one you have to protect against this type of infection. The Kaspersky rescue disk can be downloaded from their site here: https://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/rescuedisk

The partition that had the Lenovo image was on the old hard drive not the new one you purchased, so you will not be able to restore from image. Look on the bottom of the laptop for the Windows version. Is it Windows XP Home or Windows XP Pro? You will need a Microsoft Windows disk to reinstall and you can use the serial number on the sticker to activate. This is all legal because the serial number belongs to the laptop. Unfortunately, finding a Windows software might be difficult. Ask a friend if they have a disk of the same operating system.
Might be easier to take to a tech and pay $60.00 (I wouldn't pay nmore than that) and have them reinstall basic windows and drivers for you.
You can download trial versions of these programs, and test to see ifthe program can find your images, but have to pay to register thesoftware before it will actually recover the images.
You may also need to use a card reader to read the data from the card, rather than read the card while it's in the camera connected to your computer. Card readers are relatively inexpensive (less than $20) and can be bought at most camera and computer stores.
