    When you say recovery CDs, I'm assuming you're talking about driver CDs? If so, just go to the Lenovo website and download them. If you're looking for the OS CD, just download an ISO of your current OS version via bittorrent and enter your product key.

    There's so many versions of the T61 that you would have to know the exact spec (System ID). But yeah, you can download all of the drivers off their site.

    t61s should still be under warranty, and recovery disks are provided for free under warranty... or are suppose to be.

    I am fairly certain i didn't actually get any recovery CDs with my t61 last year when i got it. As others have said, everything is available online.

    Unless you request recovery CD's when you purchase your laptop it will only ship with the hidden recovery partition. I have a T61p and opted for no discs, sorry can't help.

    Just dealt with Lenovo on one of these issues for our work PCs. Tell them you burned the disks from the recovery partition, but the second disk fails(they may ask you to try another set to make sure the drive is not broke) just tell them you tried another set, but they were not the correct disk so it couldn't continue. They have sent me many recovery sets for this reason.

    woo hoo, it's here :big grin:


    no disks though...probably because it's a corporate lease.
