I've got a lenovo g580 that I had to get a new HD for as I had dropped it and wrecked the disk. So I ordered the recovery pack from the lenovo site for my laptop using the serial number.
Pack arrived and went through the instructions which are here:
under the clickable link
In the pack you get 3 numbered discs and one "additional recovery disc" without a number, instructions above tell you to boot from the first disc, then follow the instructions, insert 2nd disc etc. Now after the 2nd disc it should prompt me to add the additional recovery disc but it doesn't. It just says put in disc 3. Once finished with disc 3 it says put in disc 4 or if you don't have it hit ok, then asks for disc 5, which I also don't have then it finishes.
The problem is, some things on the laptop are acting weird, the FN key doesn't work, I can't get somethings to pop up from the bottom tray like volume and other functionality like forward and back button.
There is probably more things not working but haven't came across them yet. I've tried support till I'm blue in the face, asking if they can double check that they sent me the right recovery pack, it seems so and I haven't had any more help.
I did try the restore twice and it done the same things, only asked for discs 1-3 and 4/5 etc. which I don't have. I don't know if the discs 4 and 5 are for other models and are not mandatory, it seemed to be able to continue the restore without those. I've a feeling the additional recovery disc was needed for something as it goes in between discs 2 and 3 which I have.
Hoping someone here is able to provide some help or tips. I don't want to put the "additional recovery disc" in and boot from it incase it goes haywire or breaks something.
