Just to sart off, I have 64-bit Windows Vista with a Turion x2 processor, on an HP IQ770 Crossfire touchscreen computer.

I recently tried to install Linux so I could dual-boot that along with Vista. Something screwed up while I was partitioning the hard drive, and I lost everything. I went to look for the recovery disc with the rest of the stuff that came with my computer, and it turns out that it did not come with one. I also have a laptop with 64-bit Vista Core2Duo processor, which did come with a recovery disc. I wouldn't think that it would work though, because it wouldn't load the drivers that are unique to my computer. I'm not sure though.

What I would like to know is, would my other recovery disc work fine? If not, is there any other way to restore my computer to the way it was when I bought it?

Thank you in advance.

The make/model of the computer in question would help. You can usually order recovery discs for you machine if you contact the manufacturer.

Did it come with 64 bit OS? They don't even offer restore disks in 64 bit which is what makes me doubt that.
