  • Thanks,

                I am an Indian customer and it opens page for USA. When I am changing to India it again automatically transfering to USA. Also in the same link you provided I went to fill up a form for recovery media but it inclues only USA states.

                So, Kindly guide me how can I proceed.

  • You don't have a form outside the US (which I have complained on many occasion about). Instead you have to phone Dell Technical Support for your region and request one.

    This has led to mixed results. The technical support numbers may be found in my poll which highlights this problem: 

    Actually the Indian link seems to be broken so try the number 1800-425-8045 here:
