The backup for running is the Recovery Disks set which you can try making now as described in http://support.dell.com/support/topi...&isLegacy=true.

If neither will work you can try to repair the hotlink which boots Dell Recovery Partition - restoring F8 link,

If this fails get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since Dell would only send you a Reinstallation DVD which is provided in Step 1 of the tutorial.

No need to type it all out since all of that is in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

This is the top site on the web for this specialty for three years.

i know this

a disk is $1

not that hard to get a disk and do a clean install

i would reccomend it more than doing it from a recovery partition

i have used the links above many times

i like to wipe my data a lot

We always try to give the User all of their options since they paid for them with the PC.

I guess if I had my way I'd only offer Clean Reinstall as an option, knowing how it sets Windows 7 free to be its true featherlight, instantaneous native self.

But we have such a wide range of User experience level here it might scare half of them away.

true.

I think you are right
i personally never use recovery partitons
but the general public pays for things to make things easier
i get it, i would agree
