Computers with different Bios's have different buttons to press, to do this. Like the previous post suggested try pressing F8,or it could be F2, F11, F12 it will be one of these.

Most restore partitions are hidden so that is why you cannot see it on windows. I had this netbook before. Assuming the original hard drive is fitted there will be a hidden partition on it. I did have a problem myself though when I tried to restore it as it stopped half way through reporting files missing.

If the reinstallation fails the netbook rolls back to the original OS and no changes are made, so it was OK. I was reinstalling before I sold it. Instead I just deleted my user data and created a new account which was fine.

Maybe your best idea if you cannot restore from the partition is to get a "windows upgrade anytime" disk, thats what I use when I do a fresh install (As long as you have your windows product key)
