Dell Inspiron 5537 OS Crash


I have a 2 year old Dell Inspiron 5537. Recently I was having some issues with my OS (Windows 10), so I took backup and reset it from Windows 10's own option in the settings. This model came with original Windows 8.1 which I upgraded to Windows 10 and it did not come with any physical installation media. Now during the reset, the laptop shut down while the reset was at 90% due to the fact that I had taken out the charger and let it run on battery power (you can do this by disabling the battery device from device manager -why i did this? Because my charger was not working). Now when I turn on the laptop it goes to the Dell screen, stays for few seconds, shuts down and again repeats the same cycle. I am fine with reformatting it again but I am confused as to how I can retrieve the original OS without the installation media. Will going to a Dell service centre help me get my OS back for free (Dont want to shell out cash for something I have already 'bought' once before) Please help me out. Any responses are really appreciated. Smiley Happy

Since you've already installed Windows 10 on your laptop before, you can reinstall it any time. You can create either a DVD or a USB drive installation media. Just follow the directions on:
