I have tried restarting and then pressing F8 - there are no options for restore - there is just reboot in safe mode, reboot with debugging etc.

I have also tried restarting and then pressing CTRLF11 which does nothing.

I have done this many times before but I think its a problem now because I installed Windows Vista Prof over the original Vista Home.

I can still see the restore partition in My Computer though.

Any ideas? I can't find any Windows CD either!

Factory restore on a Vista system is different than on a Windows XP system. You need your Reinstall disk(!) and follow the instructions HERE.

I would say you are screwed then!
