If you provide some more information we would be in a better position to understand what the problem is.  As I understand it, you have a computer with an OEM version of Windows 7 Professional which you want to do a "system recovery", am I correct?  Based on this information alone, I would say yes, you can do a "system recovery".  However, my own interpretation of a "system recovery" might not be the same as yours.  A system restore restores your computer to a previous point in time, however, your use of the word "recovery" makes me wonder whether you mean something else.

 

For some unknown reason, this topic isn't stickied on this forum, however, if you take the time read it you would understand how you can help us to help you: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/18366/before-you-post-about-a-problem/.

Do you have a recovery partition on your hard drive or is Windows 7 Pro a full retail version?

If the end-user's Windows is completely nonworking, no access to Factory Recovery partition unless an external usb or dvd boot and linkage was made earlier?  Or, is there another way to access Factory Recovery?

The OP said it's OEM, so it's very likely he has a recovery partition.

I wouldn't make any assumptions until the OP gets back to us.

I missed the part about OEM in post #1 -- thanks for pointing that out.

iontur, do we have to draw the details out of you by dribs and drabs?  In post #3, I linked to a guide on how to ask for help because you aren't forthcoming with information concerning your issue.  Please read the guide then post back.

okay i understand now i got this error i was trying to do a system restore just to check and see if it worked or not  as i have never done before on the os and so i know just incase something bad happens to the os but when i did i got an error http://postimg.org/image/3ld3eaw6j/ every time i did it. normally i would do a system recovery instead of restore so this is why i ask is it possible to do a system recovery on oem

What is the brand and model number of your computer?

 

Did Windows 7 Professional come pre-installed on your computer?

 

Can you tell us how you know your computer does not have a recovery partition?

 

If there is no recovery partition, did the computer manufacturer supply restore disk(s)?

Then you have to use the disc to re-install Windows.
