I have an IBM T42 Thinkpad. It was running very sluggishly so I removed all data files and then used the set of 7 CDs (called "Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore") to restore the factory contents. I received a message indicating the process was successful and instructing me to restart the computer. I removed the CD and restarted the computer. Unfortunately, the computer opens up with the same "Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore" window, instead of to regular windows desktop.
Next I successfully reloaded the set of 7 CDs, and left the ending CD in the drive when restarting. Same result.
I know the CD set is ok because I used them successfully 2.5 years ago when my hard drive went out under warranty. I followed the same instruction sheet, but for some reason cannot get it to boot to Windows.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!
