Even if your request were not nonsensical, someone else's backup would not
work on your machine. Restore your laptop to factory condition using the
method provided by the laptop mftr. for your specific model laptop. If you
neglected to create the restore disks, contact the company and purchase
physical restore media. This is normally not very expensive.
