By minimal install, all I mean is remove any settings/applications you are allowed to before installation

The Lenovo pc came without any install or restore discs at all After you set it up you create a set of (3) dvd's that will put it back as it was. Those dvd's don't recognize the new hdd.
But no matter I'm GLAD windows is gone.
