"It had the internal recovery, not a disk"

Not exactly. You just never created the disk (or disks).

You're going to have to somehow restart the recovery process. Had you created the disks, it would be simple, but now - not. And you're not going to get much help without listing the make/model of your computer.

I think the OP means they used some F key to start a recovery process from a hard drive partition or file.

mickliq may be correct in that you may have had a few options to the process. One may have been to also make secondary cd/dvd's.

I'd contact the maker of the computer to see if they offer media. Some charge like $25 or so.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
