99.9% of computers come with recovery CDs so you can reinstall windows if you need to. Those are the CDs he's talking about. The .1% that doesn't have CDs has a good recovery partition that you can boot off of to re-do the OS.

If you can get ahold of one, just boot to it by going into your setup and selecting CDROM as your first boot device, and then you can repartition, reformat, and reinstall.
