You could use your retail Windows 7 installation disc or System Repair Disc to do step 3 in the STEP TWO section of the tutorial posted above to be able to do a system image recovery from a created system image backup.

Pressing the f11 key during startup on a computer with an HP factory image will start the system recovery process even if the prompt is not displayed.
