i had the exact same issue with a lenovo laptop recovery suite.
if you have a recovery disc from dell use that if not
do you have the recovery discs you made when first setting up your pc

these will allow you to restore to factory.

you may be able to persuade Dell to send you a disc if you ask nicely,
Debbie B is a dell rep here, will link him your thread.

Yes, you have made the incorrect choice there for Dell Windows 7 PC Restore.

If Recovery will not run everything you need is here to get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
