Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Did you try to look in their manual?? From that page:
Turn on or restart the notebook, and then press the Esc key repeatedly while the F10 = BIOS Setup Options message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen. The System Restore page opens.
Use the arrow keys to select System Restore , and then press Enter .
Follow the on-screen instructions to recover the system.
Be aware that a RECOVERY will totally wipe out everything on your drive. Did your laptop come pre-loaded with Edbuntu on it? If not...you'll wind up reloading Windows XP or whatever came on it when you bought it.
I need your help. In the middle of the formatting process, (I wanted the formatting process), my power went out. Now I'm getting an "Error 15" message. what can I do?
Well, if the keys to get you into the recovery partition don't work, as EDDY1 said, your MBR/partition table may be gone. The only option you then have is to re-install via CD/DVD.
Often times, there are recovery discs that can be obtained from your manufacturer, that will rebuild your system (including the recovery partition). They are sometimes free, sometimes a small ($20) charge. However, if you've got a laptop....the power going out wouldn't make any difference at all, unless you had a dead/removed battery, and were just running off AC.
