So much for a relaxed day.
attempts to create factory recover disk / media for my Lenovo ThinkPad W530 laptop are met with
"You can have only one copy of the Microsoft Window Operating system. The Product Recovery Media Creator will exit now."
WTF?
Which fuckwitted cockwombling excuse of a "human" at Lenovo decided it was a good idea to limit the number of factory recovery install media I can create?
I wanted to create another to use this time as I had reused the original USB memory stick I created for this a long time ago.

So a quick google and a furtle and a cmd prompt "echo 0 > X:\FactoryRecovery\RECOVERY.INI:Done" sorts it out and lets me create the media.

Who are these amazing knobheads who generate these ridiculous quasi-legal-and-barely-thoughout (pointlessly limiting) policies and make such stupid decisions that cause so much stress and anger? Someone hold them down and beat some clues into them!
