A factory reset does the job, see http://www.manualslib.com/manual/667014/Hp-Elitebook-8560w.html?page=131 .

Then...without an install DVD...you cannot reinstall Win 7...unless you contact the system manufacturer and obtain recovery/restore disks that will accomplish the factory reset.

That page was for resetting the factory settings of BIOS and not the OS. When you go to Disk Managment is there a partition labeled recovery?
Computer > Manage > Disk Management
Edit: If you see a recovery partition tap F11 at boot and you should get the Recovery Manager.

Click the Windows Globe. Right Click Computer. There should be a listing called manage. From there you can select Disk Management. It is under Storage.
Another way to get to it.
Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools and then select Computer Management Edit: You may have to right click Computer Management and select Run As Administrator.

If all you have is C: and System Reserved then you have no Recovery Partition which is surprising considering it's an HP. You will need to purchase a set of disks from HP.
