I haven't seen what is on Alienware's, but on the other Dell "consumer" lines they include a Recovery Partition and a Diagnostic Partition. These are both "FAT" partitions. The recovery partition was to restore the PC to the original factory condition without the need for discs, and the diagnostic partition had hardware diagnostics.
