I thought you said in another thread that your recovery partition was lost and not working?

The recovery partition would restore the laptop to the state it was in on the day you bought it.

A restoration through Windows backup and restore or any other imaging program will restore the imaged partitions to the state they were in on the day the image was made, not the day you bought the laptop.
