RE: How to re-install operating system using OEM partition?

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?

If the recovery partition is corrupted, we would not be able to create recovery media.

Please reply for further questions.

Thanks & Regards
