T43, Product recovery function has been removed from this sytem

I'm try to restore my T43 to Factory State. Via F11 key, I got the process started but received this message:

" The product recovery function has been removed from this sytem"

 

My T43 was previously formated and I did a clean install of Winxp, but I didn't remove the Hidden Area, it's still there.

 

What is the possible problem? How can I get the recovery function back?

 

Thanks!

try this. If this don't work then you would to reinstall the OS using the T43 recovery media disk set.
