Restoring Sony PCG-U1

I want to restore my Sony PCG-U1 7" UMPC, but I believe that if I do this (to original settings) it restores to the Japanese settings. The reason for wanting to restore is that I want to sell it. Is there any way I can safely sell it without restoring to original settings?

Factory restore


The following information comes from the Panasonic Website:

Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

Most 2011 models of Panasonic Toughbook computers now have a Recovery partition on the hard drive instead of a Recovery DVD included in the laptop box. The only exceptions are the Toughbook F9, H2 and U1 Ultra which will continue to ship with a Windows 7 Recovery DVD. Besides restoring the computer to its original factory image, the Recovery Partition can also be used to load 64-bit Windows 7 Professional (32-bit ships by default from Panasonic).

You can order the Recovery Disks here:

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to restore your Vaio PC to it's factory settings. In other words how to restore your computer to it's original settings (in the exact state you bought it).
For that you have to:
1. Back-up all your data. Restoring to factory setting means to erase all data and reinstall Windows, drivers and preinstalled applications. If you have a single drive (C:) you have to backup your data to external drive or disks.
2. Start VAIO Recovery Center. Click on Start button and then click on All Programs. From the program list select "VAIO Recovery Center".

Resetting\Restoring it to original settings. WARNING: This will most likely wipe-out all saved games, demos, & etc. Restoring your PS3 to original settings. This is how it's done: Turn off PS3, Unplug PS3, Wait a couple minutes and re-insert plug, Push & hold-down power button until you hear 4 beeps (1,1,2) then let off the power. It should show you a page with restoring options, or a prompt of YES or NO of wanting to enter the Restore Options Page. Choose the one that you would like to do.
