how to validate Win7 Recovery disc on Thinkpad T420

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hope this is a simple one - just looking for a cheap and easy way to verify the Win 7 recovery discs I created from a brand new Thinkpad T420.  I have one disc with the winre.wim file and several more with the image.  I'm hoping I don't have to restore the whole thing just to test, what I really need to do is a fresh install of Win XP and am a little behind on getting this active.
