Did you make a set of recovery disk before deleting the partition? if not you will need to purchase a set from Dell.
I can't figure why peaple delete these partitions, as the space gained is not worth the hassle later. You would be lucky to fit one HD movie in that amount of space.
No. i didn't make a set, i was under the impression that the discs provided by dell would have had everything already on the discs,.and the entire thing would just re partition itself and reload it... thanks for your response
