Thanks for the good thoughts. :)
If yours is a Recovery or System Restore CD provided by IBM w/ that particular model computer, then, no, you will likely not need the OS CD.
I have seen some instances where the OS CD and the recovery CD were needed. So, I can't be certain w/out knowing the model and, possibly, the serial no. of that computer. Chances are, however, that you will not need the OS CD.
Please, make sure that you have backed up all of your data as the restore CD will format your hard drive as part of the System Restore process.
I also recommend that you download all the latest drivers from IBM/LENOVA for that computer and burn them all to a CD-R disc before you begin the restore process. It could save you some trouble.
Please, let me know if this response was "Helpful" or a "FixYa" for you or, of course, if you have additional questions, etc on this topic.
If I did not answer your question satisfactorially, plz, b4 assigning a "Thanks for Trying" or lower rating to my "Solution", let me know. I may have misunderstood you or the problem you are experiencing.
In any case, I will work w/ you until your problem is resolved or diagnosed. I promise! :)

Click start,all programs,accessories,system tools,system restore,and choose factory settings when the window opens.
Or if you have the vista disk,put it in the cd drive restart and tap the F12 key while it is booting.
