  1. What are you trying to do? Reinstall Windows? Restore to the factory settings?

    Please clarify.
  2. (1) Take HDD out of 'Netbook and attach it to another computer. Requires 2.5" HDD-USB adapter.
    (2) Use a bootable USB thumb drive 'RescueCD' that has tools to let you do disk management functions like format.

    Ubuntu Desktop has instructions on how to make a bootable USB thumb drive.
    Use the F12 to get the Advanced Boot Menu so you can choose to boot the USB device.
    It's not Windows - but enough like Windows you might be able to view your files on the hard disk if it's still accessible.
