    Hey guys,

    I need to restore my netbook's operating system to the original factory settings. Unfortunately, I can't find the usb drive that I used to create the backup of the system when I first got the netbook.

    My netbook has a Lenovo_Recovery partition. Can I use it alone to restore the operating system without the USB drive?

    My laptop is still under warranty, if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance!
