i am running windows 7 64bit on a Dell 1420. i would like to reinstall (factory reset) windows 7, erasing everything on the computer and starting from scratch. My computer came with windows XP and when windows 7 was installed, i believe the recovery partition was deleted. i do not have the windows disk. i have created a recovery disk and when i boot from it it brings me to this:
I dont believe i want any of these options. Is it possible to start from scratch with windows 7 given the above scenario?
thanks in advance.
