Restore your computer without disks
To repair or restore from the hard drive, restart the computer and press F11 when prompted.
To burn your own set of recovery disks, select Start > All Programs > System Recovery > PC Recovery Disk Creator
That's all there is to it.
This also works to make recovery disks for Compaq.
