My wife ordered a Dell laptop from QVC; when it arrived it had a lot of pre-installed applications and some CDs with the usual give-aways. Unfortunately it did not include an installation disk for Windows XP Home. While the OS was pre-installed, I can't help but wonder what to do if ever I need to reinstall the OS; I had to do that on my desktop when the registry got corrupted. The online manual from Dell just says use System Restore (which is fine if System Restore is accessible). I find it inconceiveable that a manufacturer would not include a backup disk of the OS for emergencies.

Thanks to all who have offered the good advice. Barb, I will definitely check out the Dell document (I assume it will be on a Dell support site).
