Maybe you just can't see the recovery partition ...

By default - they are usually hidden from view until required.

Most are invoked by a particular key combination IMMEDIATELY after power-on. Try Alt+F9 or Alt+F10.

If there is no recovery partition and no recovery disc, your Supplier should either supply you with one for free or for a nominal fee.

You cannot download a recovery disc since it would have to be specifically designed for your particular PC.

IBM used to include a utility to create the recovery disks. I thought Lenovo was continuning that. Have you looked for such a utility?
