Re: cant restore to factory

sefdnaks,

Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

You can try the steps below to restore your system to factory conditions.

The Dell™ Factory Image Restore tool replaces PC Restore. Access it from the F8 boot menu. To enter the boot menu press the F8 key slowly several times after the bios loads.

Re: cant restore to factory

I suggest you to insert Windows xp or above CDs on your Cd Rom and boot your system by using it, then in first steps of Windows, you can see all deleted partitions and then you can repair it without need to do other thing.
