will factory restore on my sony vaio laptop remove the preloaded genuine windows 7 or will it re-install a fresh but genuine copy of windows 7?

Yesterday, I got my new sony VAIO laptop delivered, which has genuine windows 7 home basic already installed on it. Somehow, it's not booting now. windows boot manager screen is appearing , it is asking for inserting a recovery disk and then repairing the windows 7 OS.
I did not get any recovery disks, but have a recovery partition on hard drive of about 15 GB.

So, my question is will the factory restore remove the genuine windows 7 completely? or will it re-install windows 7 from the Recovery partition?

The Factory Restore process will restore the machine to the condition it was in when it left the factory. At that stage it had a genuine Windows 7 installation.
