When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.

The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.
Enter the Administrator Password
The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis.
To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.

i guess that the computer has installed vista ultimate and the creation of recovery cd option has gone with it. the new recovery cd will solve all your problems.

Did you know you only get ONE shot at creating a recovery disc? And most of the time it is garbage, just like Vista.
He tried to put XP on it and failed? weird.
A couple things you can do...
1. Get your hands on a Vista disk. If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow a Vista disk. Do a complete fresh install. Use your "Product Key" and you will have your own Licensed, perfectly legal version of Vista.
2. Get yourself a copy of XP. Delete all partitions, then create a new one. Don't try to save that Vista recovery partition...it's toast. I recommend XP, but I'm a dinosaur.
If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow

As far as I know (I have a Toshiba though a few years old now) and do a Recover to Factory Default state from Hidden Partition every 6 to 9 months and I hav enever been told to Tap F1 but instead Hold down "0" i.e he Zero button on my laptop as I turn the Laptop On from an Off state by pressing the Pwr Button and ONLY release the "0" button when I get a Recovery Meny with 4 Options I think.
Your Model might be a different Button on the Keyboard so PLEASE check your User Guide/Manual for instruction.

Instead of doing an automated recovery, try system restore. This helps when automated recovery cannot find a solution
