About Dell Factory Image Restore

NOTE: Dell Factory Image Restore may not be available in certain
countries or on certain computers.
Use Dell Factory Image Restore only as the last method to restore your
operating system. This option restores your hard drive to the operating
state it was in when you purchased the computer. Any programs or
files added since you received your computer—including data files—are
permanently deleted from the hard drive. Data files include documents,
spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos, music files, and so on. If
possible, back up all data before using Dell Factory Image Restore.

Starting Dell Factory Image Restore

CAUTION: Using Dell Factory Image Restore permanently deletes
all data on the hard drive and removes any programs or drivers
installed after you received your computer. If possible, back up the
data before using this option. Use Dell Factory Image Restore only if
System Restore did not resolve your operating system problem.
1. Turn on the computer.
2. When the DELL logo appears, press <F8> few times to access the
Advanced Boot Options window.

continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop;
then, shut down your computer and try again.
3. Select Repair Your Computer. The System Recovery Options window
appears.
4. Select a keyboard layout and click Next.
5. To access the recovery options, log on as a local user. To access the
command prompt, type administrator in the User name field, then
click OK.
6. Select Dell Factory Image Restore or Dell Factory Tools→ Dell
Factory Image Restore (depending on the configuration of your
computer).
7. Click Next. The Confirm Data Deletion screen appears.
