How can I make recovery disks on my Lenovo laptop?

Episode 1088 (1:57:43)

Win from Madison, WI

Win bought a refurbished computer from Lenovo and it doesn't come with recovery discs. Leo says that he'll have to make them. But Lenovo says that he can't do that and that he has to buy them directly from Lenovo. Leo says that's odd. It's because Microsoft pushes hardware manufacturers to sell PCs without discs because they're afraid of piracy. If he Googles "create Lenovo recovery disc," and if he has ThinkVantage, he should be able to do this.

Here's a tech note from Lenovo on how to create recovery media using ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery.
