How do I request for Recovery Media of Microsoft Windows Operating System?

If you need to get media to repair or restore your operating system to its original factory image, visit the Media Backup page to get information on creating recovery discs from your Dell computer or downloading an image online.

While we supply the most up-to-date media currently shipping on new devices, this media may not have all the drivers needed for your specific device, especially if it is over one (1) year old, due to frequent updates. To ensure all of the correct drivers are available for the computer, it is strongly suggested to download the latest device drivers from the Dell Support website
