Has the OP asked a question or for help? I can't see the reason for the thread. Is it a spammer?

It's been a (long while) since niece had one, I'd made a note at the time:

  1. Shutdown the pc

  2. Remove any extra hardware that you've connected

  3. Start up the pc and immediately keep tapping the F11 key

  4. Recovery Manager will launch

  5. Choose from the options 'System Recovery' and follow the prompts

  6. If you have any files you want to keep select 'Backup your files first' and connect an external device to back them up to, follow the wizard prompts

  7. Click 'Next' to start the recovery process

with any luck this might work for yours.

Running the latest Win 10 preview version on a 2009, originally with Vista machine, with 4 GB ram and only a dual core CPU. A bit of an unfair comment there wee eddie.
