Re: Ubuntu Linux 18.04 recovery image for Precision 5530

While most features work on my Precision 5530 with the normal Ubuntu image, I would like to get my original image back as well. Unfortunately I wiped my partitions before realizing that Dell does not offer them for download anymore, I run into the same messages that were posted above. Clearly, Dell uses a custom image, as the download button identifies this filename

https://downloads.dell.com/restricted//FOLDER05470685M/1/dell-bto-bionic-beaver-Ubuntu 18.04-Precisi...

 

I am guessing that they restricted the access to this file because they shift to the image download via the BIOS recovery tool. However even that does not work for me, after searching for several seconds, it concludes that my OS is incompatible (not verbatim).
