Yes, i had already thought about using a CD of the OS for the reinstall, but that's another problem.
The E-Machine is the only Vista OS computer that i have access to, and the rest of the computers all have XP.
That would work, if i had access to a Vista CD.
But, the F11 didn't work according to my friend, but i'm not sure if it was done properly. However, i am pretty sure that F11, or Alt+F11 is the shortcut you hit to access the recovery partition on Dells, and i think Gateway machines, but i'm not positive on E-Machine brands, as i've never used one personally.
But again, thanks for your help and time in this matter.
