I have wrote multiple wiki's on Windows Reinstallation which may be found here:

http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/

These focus on manual clean installation in particular when the factory settings have inherent problems. There is an assortment of information including download links and identifying hardware components with hardware IDs.

I have wrote these wiki's to address key areas customers on the Dell Community Forums have with manual Windows installation so thought it worth placing a link to them on the TechCenter Microsoft OS and Applications wiki.

The statistics of the wiki's also demonstrate key areas which Dell need to address in particular OS media procurement via download links.
