You can't I dont think you should have made a recovery point when you first started, You may have to re-purchase windows if you don't have the disk.

Best thing I think would be to go and purchase a blank disk and back up onto that then do what your doing.

When discs are not provided or ordered there is a small program included by the builder/OEM/Brand for making those discs. There's usually a prompt during setup about it but it can be done later, I suggest you do it. That program will be something from the builder or maybe the CD/DVD Burning program such as Nero, Roxio, NTi, etc., will have it. For the builder look for their name on a Folder in Start, All Programs. And you will need DVD-R or DVD+R discs, don't use the DVD-RW or DVD+RW discs. Some will allow using DVD+R/DL [Dual-Layer] discs, holds everything on 1 or 2 discs instead of 3 or 4, I've done it both ways.

This will only work if your system came preinstalled and you will lose all data on all drives.
If you can get into windows, turn off wireless connections and unplug your internet. Now create the oem dvds not windows backup, after done do it again for backup. Reboot computer to cd/dvd then when it ask you which backup to use, choose factory. It may ask to restore the OEM partition as well, say yes to that as well. If your system doesn't have dvd drive, sometime you can use USB drives. (Manufactures should of included factory restore images on cds and/or USB flash drives)

If it is under warranty, you can usually can call the manufacture and you will either get a restore cd, restore usb drive or an OEM re-installation disk. The oem re-installation disk will not included drivers, so ask for a driver disk as well. Out Warranty they will still send you those but you might need to pay for postage.
