      Normally there will be some sort of recovery partition you can extract the WIM file from, then use WDS to deploy it

        Alternatively, you can download the media from MS and activate it using the OEM key supplied.

          Thanks for your suggestions,

          As I contacted the Lenovo support they said that the Laptop can be restored to the Initial stage[Shipping stage Image] by using the Lenovo One Key Recovery button.

          This is said to be similiar to formatting as we are loading a Image which is taken at the lenovo factory itself.

          They will not provide any media with the system so, Need to use the One Key recovery option only.

          This One Key Recovery can be used to take Snapshots which can be used to restore at later times.

          Thanks 4 all
          Regards,

            Have a look through the programs on a restored media as it MAY give you the option to make some recovery media.

            I've just done this on a Compaq system and recently on a Toshiba.

            Else clone the drive so you have the partitions handy to restore in the event of a HDD failure.

              I bet it comes pre infected with Norton A/V. That is the first thing to go!
