Dell disks

Hello.  I have a Dell All in one XPS 2710.  I need to bring back the computer back to the original state.  I made copies of the Dell recovery disk from the instructions given on the computer.  Unfortunately, I cannot find them and I have looked all over the house.  Is there a way to get a copy of the recovery disk so I can bring the computer back to its original state?  Thanks.

RE: Dell disks

ok saw this post, but need clarification.

I want to format my hard drive  and reinstall my windows 8.  So i download the program on the link then i click the language, the OS (for me i simply did "Windows 8.1")  turn it in to an ISO burn that to a dvd.  Then from there its the normal format and reinstall procedure?  that seems all to easy and convenient.

You need to Download the .iso and make a Bootable USB for a UEFI BIOS - A DVD may not work as the optical drive may be rejected by Secure Boot.
