Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go!
Sounds like installing the second OS might have erased your recovery partition.
Let's take a look at the partitioning on your computer.
- Go to Start > Run.
- Type in diskmgmt.msc and click Enter.
- To take a screenshot press Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key.
- Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint.
- Press CTRL+V to paste the contents of the screenshot into the paint workspace.
- Go to File > Save As.
- Save the file as a JPEG to your desktop.
Please attach the screenshot to your next reply.

Is there anything in Ubuntu that would give us that?

If you are using GRUB (most likely) here is information on how to change it's dual-boot options:
GParted is the Ubuntu application you want to run to see disk/partitions.
You may have best luck running the tools when booted to a live CD.
Changing your GRUB settings will not get you back to factory settings (you would need the restore partition or systems disks to get there) but it should give you the option of booting to another OS/partition, which, if it is still there, could be the restore partition.
