update: so i pulled out external dvd drive and found my dell windows xp restore reinstall disc. popped it in, set netbook to boot from external dvd and it went thru process of installing the OS....after it was almost done, all of a sudden symantec ghost popped up and it went into a recovery mode, restoring the software that came originally on netbook. i had tried at least 15x to restore using f9 key but it didnt work. so im satisfied. got it running like new. thanks guys.
