Welcome to Seven Forums deepak7. It should be as easy as in this video. If F4 is not the correct key, let us know and we'll seek out the correct method.

If you do a factory restore, yes, it will return it to factory conditions from what I know. You should back up all your data first. I'm sure someone with personal experience will come along. A clean install would be better, do you have the original OS disks? A Guy

Hi and welcome! Have you tried rebooting and pressing F4 to see if there is a recovery partition? Although you may have a pirated copy, they may have left the original partition intact.

Yes, by all means back up files before doing anything.

As this is trying to recover from installing a pirated version of w7, what do y'all think of cleaning the disk first before doing any installation? I would worry about data it may have placed on the disk that doesn't get deleted by recovering/reinstalling.
