I purchased, several months ago, a out of warranty Dell Optiplex620 from my employeer when we upgraded our cad station. They made a clean install of Windows XP, but it only has a 60gb hard drive (it was on a network). The system works great with no issues. I want to clone the hard drive on to a larger hard drive but I aso want to get the syatem back to factory or clean condition before I do this. I have the following questions.
1. Is there a way to check to insure that the "F-11" return to factory works prior to giving it a shot?
2. They did supply me with a "Rstore Disc" but could not gaurantee it went with machine but said it should work. ???
3. Is there a partion on the harddrive that I can access to restore the windows?
OR any suggestions would be appreciated.
