    Then your computer was installed with an Microsoft OEM System Builder DVD. You will need to buy one. I bought a new Windows 7 32bit Home Premium DVD for $99 last week at Central Computer.
  5. If no recovery partition, Dell are obliged to provide a DVD, call them and demand it, how else are you supposed to recover ?
