System Recovery usually implies the use of manufacturers CDs to re-install the operating system and software so that you return the PC to the state it was in when purchased. This requires Recovery CDs which are supplied with the system. It is a feature of brand name computers, not available on other systems, it's not part of Windows XP (unless you're talking about 'Recovery Console').
