System recovery options

I just bought a vostro laptop. It has win7 Pro installed. Can anyone tell me what system restore options I have. Dell back up and restore is not installed though I have the option to create restore media. However there is no windows activation code on the laptop or in the paperwork. There was with my last Dell laptop. How could I reinstall windows without an activation code or would the reinstall media somehow not need an activation code as it would be reinstalling to this Dell laptop with its specific service tag?

On my last Dell laptop Dell backup and restore was installed and there was a reset to factory state option but there doesn't seem to be such an option with this new laptop.

Regards Steve
