yo yes they has os recovery in your orginal hard drive i found out couple days ago my friends brought in with his newer lenovo ideacentre 700 i made forced the machine to recovery mode finally worked !!! please email me detail ok thank!
I'm not entirely sure what you mean here?
To put Ubuntu on the hard drive, you'll need to install Ubuntu onto a spare hard drive on another computer and then the hard drive into the B40-30. Presto, you now have control of the OS.
Also, apparently if your hardware warranty from Lenovo expires, ZVRS expects you to not renew the warranty, stating that they cover the warranty themselves. Right... like I'm going to trust that the hardware's covered when the warranty's expired?
