If this is a laptop, you can't change it without the co-operation
of the manufacturer, which will also involve convincing them that
you own it.

When I worked at Compaq - had to SEND IT IN - they would wipe it - OS to
factory ( or maybe just tossed the old drive ?).
So if you NEED the data, remove the disk, install into a desktop pc as
second drive and backup before sending back ( ASK them while on the phone)
