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.

My Thinkpad/Lenova R51 had a hard drive failure. I got a new hard drive and installed it in the computer. Then I attempted to use the rescue and recovery cd and the product recovery cd's that came with...


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.

I have Lenovo Notbook but OS has been distroy.now how can i install Win XP.Bootable Dos CD is Working but Setup is not working. Please can you help me ?


There should be a rescue and recovery part of your computer. To do this, turn on the computer and when the ThinkPad screen displays, press the blue rectangular ThinkVantage button in the upper left of your keyboard. This should bring you to the Rescue and Recovery applications which is stored on a hidden partition on your hard drive (and thus cannot be harmed by whatever destroyed the OS). From there, read the different options and you should find one that lets you restore your operating system that came with the computer.

If that doesn't work, go to Lenovo's web site and see if you can contact their support and ask for restoration CDs.

Forgot power on password for IBM R60 thinkpad


Resetting the cmos has nothing to do with the Windows OS. It only helps you if your BIOS is password protected.

...and the whole idea of a password is, that nobody else can hack into your machine that easily, right?

Anyways - there are ways to reset a password: google is your best friend in this case. And you will need access to a CD burner, since you have to boot your laptop from the downloaded "Rescue-CD".
