Shutdown the notebook. Start tapping away at f11 as soon as you press the power button to launch Recovery Manager which you can then use to reinstall the OS.
Alternatively, if you have created a set of Recovery Discs, insert the first disc and restart the notebook to start the process.
Either way is fine.
