RNARCIS74,

Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

That error indicates that DSL set up is unable to locate recovery partition. Did you recently have a hard drive replaced? Some times, even though the partition is available; set up can't access it.

Jesse L,

Thanks for the reply.  I am trying to install DSL on a refurbished M101z laptop that I recently purchased from the Dell Outlet.  There is a Recovery partition (D: drive), with a Factory.wim file inside the D:\Dell\Image folder.

The RPSetup.exe.log file leftover after the failed installation includes this line:

[2011-05-15 01:19:38] INFORMATION : ISOPart not found (7) (cannot find bootmgr and RP:\Recovery\WindowsRE\winre.wim) 

So maybe the installation is failing because it is looking for winre.rim which does not exist?

Thanks,

rnarciso74

Marciso74,

It would appear that the Restore image is corrupt or not there. You will need to manually install windows.

Nice page on the DELL hard drive partition - I'm interested in restoring a HD that got the format and partition wiped. This fella describes software & hardware. Also which version of Op-Sys used what type of software to create the "hidden image" on the hidden partition....knowledge is power...undelete was written by Mr. Norton; ya might give this method.a think.
