Inspiron Vista Reinstall

Hi,

Im looking to do a reinstall of Vista on my inspiron laptop. I dont have the OEM disc as I have lost it. I have been told that Dell laptops have a hidden partition to do a factory re install of the OS. Can anyone help me with this procedure?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Rob

Re: Inspiron Vista Reinstall

Dell can help on this page. You can request replacement dvd from Dell here in case PC Restore doesn't work. Don't forget to update Windows immediately after a factory reinstall.
