This Compaq CQ60 Laptop came with win7, I need to reload the OS but when clicking on the Recovery partition I am getting a window with this info:

 

Warning:

This area of your hard drive [or partition] contatins files used to perform a system recovery

Do not alter or delete any of these files....

 

 

I am not understanding the procedure to reload the OS?

When you start you computer tap the "F11 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.If that doesn't work you can also tryF10 or F8 and then select "Repair your Computer". Look for Factory restore .
