It's a laptop that didn't come with a recovery disk.

In the past, when I bought a new laptop, I would also buy an OEM copy of Win7, and install that over the bloat-ware version supplied by the laptop manufacturer. My sister is not me, and didn't want to spend the money. I haven't even been able yet to determine if it's even possible to create one from the laptop.

IMHO, she should just install Linux and be done with it. WoW runs in Wine, and the only other stuff she does is email and web, so it ain't like she needs Windows.

Once again, it's her laptop, and I can only suggest stuff.
