HP Pavillion 411 Restoring Windows XP

I need to restore the operating system on my PC but HP PAvillions do not come with a restore CD. How do I go about doing this?

hasnt the HP got a partition with the restore info on.

When my partner got her HP T450, I burnt a bootable disc when she first got it. I think you can do this at any time. Beware it takes about 7 CDRoms or 1 DVD.
