You will need to remove the HD Drive to look for the manufacturer.

so pretty much windows boots normally, but is that factory mode really that important for the OS? I mean the windows is working.

I am not sure what you are saying.

Does it go into sysprep every time you start up?

I'd run the alt + F10 again and let it run for well over 1 hour. It has to do a lot of decompression and I think you would have a relatively low power CPU. Give it 2 hours say???

i don't even know what sysprep is. when you factory restore it, it makes your log in a few times during restore, and a little window pops up saying system preparation tool, and gives your a selection to reboot, quit, or shutdown. I choose reboot, and thats it. other then that, the restoration software process never finishes, i shut my commputer off and windows boots normally, but i am wondering why that piece of software at the end of the process doesnt finish?
