If C drive is your OS,and D is your recovery partition

Do you have a OS CD?

If yes insert it,press any key on bootup

Wait for MENU

You should see two options:install and repair your computer

click on repair computer

Select command prompt

Then type this on the command prompt :

imagex /apply d:\dell\image\factory.wim 1 c:\

This will start the recovery

Restart after recovery gets completed
