If that partition is gone and you did not prepare recovery media (DVDs or flash drive) you're out of luck.

You'll need to call Dell for a Windows disc to do the reinstall.

Hi Abdallah,

Welcome to Dell Community Forum.

The Dell Datasafe Restore and Emergency Backup Option normally helps take the system to its factory image state however, if the Recovery Partition has been deleted from your system then the only option left would be to do a clean installation of the Windows Operating System.

Do you get any error message on startup? The following link has steps for Dell Datasafe Restore however, as mentioned earlier, this will only be helpful if the recovery partition has not been erased completely.

Hope this is helpful.

Please reply in case you have any further questions.

Thanks and regards,

If you have not made a set of backup DVDs or a flash drive, you'll need to call Dell for a windows 8 disc.

Hi Abdallah,

If the system is not booting to Windows, please run the diagnostics to confirm if the problem is hardware or software-related.

Turn on the computer and tap the <F12> key several times at the Dell logo screen. This will start the One-Time Boot Menu. Select Diagnostics to start the diagnostic assessment of the computer hardware.

We need to determine whether the problem is OS-related or with the hard drive, so that we can accordingly help resolve the issue.

 If you see any error code, please reply with the same.

Thanks and regards,
Babita S

but when i try to install   windows  from a cd it gives me the full hard drive size as unlocated space  

and this means that all the partitions including the recovery partition has beeb fully erased

Hi Abdallah,

Thank you for your reply.

Typically, unallocated space means space on the drive that has not been "allocated" to a partition nor formatted. Basically, it is space that has not been setup to be used by the computer yet. Since you do not see any recovery partition listed, the recovery partition may have been deleted as mentioned by you in your earlier post.

If you wish, you may go ahead with the installation of Windows. It will be a clean installation and all the data on your computer may have been erased already. You may also need to re-install all third-party bundled software which came with your system as the Clean Installation will install only the Operating System.

Please reply if you have any further questions.

Thanks and regards,
Babita S
