I wish to restore my Dell Inspiron 1546 back to Factory Settings so it's like the day I bought it. However I have a slight problem in that I don't have the restore discs, and Dell wish to charge me £39.00 for the privilege of sending me some. I have tried re-installing from the recovery partition, however it doesn't give me the option to restore it. There should be an option to do this, but I seem to be missing it which apparently means I've either deleted the partition (Which I haven't) or it has been corrupted somehow.
Therefore I have no way of re-installing it back to the stage I want.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? Or where i may be able to get a cheaper disc? Obviously I have a Windows 7 Home Premium license as that came with the Laptop, but I assume it is an OEM install so I assume I can't use a normal Windows 7 disc. Is that correct?
Any help or suggestions would be welcomed.
