factory image restore on my c521 not working

This question is not answered

Can anyone help with restoring the factory settings on my C521 running vista premium, i have followed all the instructions on the dell support page.

When i try to get advanced boot options page up (f8) i cannot. i can get boot options (f12) but not advanced options.

i have seen the factory restore once before when the repair facility was running after my pc crashed but cannot find it again.


Please help.

  • If you have Vista, and the Image Restore partition still works, you would use F8 to access the advanced boot options for Windows to run it (CTRL+F11 at the Dell splash screen just after powering on for WinXP).  If the option isn't there, or it doesn't work, then you would need to do a manual reinstallation using the OS Reinstallation disks for the system.
