Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

You probably cannot do it that way. Most factory resets operate form a Recovery Partition which you access by pressing a Function key as the system starts up. You don't have long to watch the screen to see which key to press.

Thank you. I am very new to this but am finding out that there is SO much to learn but I am completely intrigued and amazed by it all. I wish I had been interested years ago. thanks again...
