I want to re-install the windows 8 and drivers using the OEM partition, the laptop is dell inspiron 15R 5521. Please give me a detailed instruction.

Let me know how it goes.
Thanks for the help, I managed to reinstall the OS perfectly. But is there any way to make a bootable backup copy of the OEM partition? There is an option to make a recovery media in Dell Backup and Recovery software but that creates a image of file size 300MB, but what if the partition gets corrupted?
Refer the following link which has steps to create recovery disks:
If the recovery partition is corrupted, we would not be able to create recovery media.
Please reply for further questions.
