I have the same problem as Duace. I recently purchased a Thinkpad x1 (which is a lovely machine
- I wanted to upgrade to a SSD HD and created a recovery disk using a 16GB USB stick.
- I installed the SSD HD but the X1 wont boot from the recovery USB.
- I went back to create some good old fashioned recovery DVDs but no joy. I now have the same error as the person that started this post.
- I replaced the original HD.
It took me days to set up the latop and transfer my data. However, now without a way of creating recovery media I am too nervous to use the machine to store important data.
Every other machine I have (HP, ACER, ASUS, Toshiba etc) allows me to create multiple number of recovery disks. This makes sense because the recovery disks can only be used with specific laptops which all came with legal copies of Windows.
My current plan is to backup all 200GB of data and use the onboard recovery facility to return the laptop to factory settings. A right royal pain in the .....
Does anyone know if this work or if lenovo has put a block on this as well?
Thanks in advance.....
