I can't format my vista on my dell 1525!

Jump to solution

Hello,

I want to format and recover my factory setting for my Dell Inspiron 1525 and when I tried to use Recovery Manager or Recovery Disk Creation I couldn't find them I tried to search but still they don't exist! My laptop did not come with Windows Vista CD and the store told me just use Recovery Manager if you want to format and install Vista again!

Pleas Help

Dell's that have the "PC Restore" option (recovery partition on the hard drive) can be accessed by F8 at power on. 

CLICK ME for Dell instructions..

If the PC Restore will not work, you can order a set of Discs from Dell   HERE

I checked the link again and now it works fine. When i posted previous post, it didn't work for me. I tried it three times but it didn't work. But now it works without any problem.
