I think that's a Motherboard Number. Have you looked on labels for other numbers?

Is it a Scaleo something?

You can get the further model infor and manual by entering Serial Number on Siemens website

click here

Manual should say how to access Factory Recovery Manager.

Maybe pressing F10 or F11 at boot?
