Yes it is hidden for a reason as stated.
If you are having issues with the crlt+alt+del or alt+f4 or cmd Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.

That would be your restore partition. This is why you do not have any recovery CDs. During boot up, you should be prompted to press a key to enter system recovery, F2, F11, etc.. This will restore you OS to 'as new' or 'as the way you bought it' condition.
