I would imagine you would boot using that disc as you probably have a hidden recovery partition on the drive somewhere. See this Tutorial: System Recovery Options

Welcome to Seven forums.

I am assuming that system was shipped with Windows 7 and Dell Datsafe on the system. Please check this video which would be useful:

If you have not made recovery disks and want to request them then check the link below:

Request Backup Disks

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
