After win7 install can I click "Return Computer to factory state" and get WIN XP back?

yeah like, when you restart your laptop, you can click the lenovo care button on the keyboard, and then in the laptop you can click a botton that says, Return Computer ta Factory state. Will it erase everything and put windows xp back?

possibly not. My X300 won't boot into the recovery partition - but it was secondhand and I don't know if it did before I installed Win7
