Hi ,

Let me tell you the steps to initiate the recovery from the hard drive.Turn the computer off and then disconnect any external devices connected to the computer like printer,usb storage devices and also the cable for the internet .Once that is done please do remember that as soon as you turn the computer off and then as soon as you release the power button after pressing it start tapping the f10 key without stopping until you get a blank screen that says system recovery.Follow the on screen instruction and then when you reach the page that says advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next.Recovery will start on its own and wait for it to reach 100% then it prompts you to restart the computer adn then when it comes back follow the onscreen instruction for the basic setup like selecting the the country time zome etc and then will take you to the desktop.
If the recovery does not work from the partiotion then you need to run it from the disc so please call up computer surgeons who deal with selling the recovery disks and the number is 1800-496-6127...

all the best ...
