Go to a Flea Market & buy an ME installation Disc.
I can not understand why people buy a new computer without the software. If it means not making a sale, they will supply it.

What message do you get when you try the original restore disk? If your machine simply ingores it and will not boot from it, that is easily fixed under Boot Order in the BIOS.

A restore/recovery disk makes the computer a little bit cheaper to purchase rather than including a full OS disk. These recovery disks are fine when you need to reinstall or repair an OS providing that it is used on the machine it came with.
