To All

Had to "Factory Refresh" a few day old Dell XPS 8700 (my error) took a long time to get to 95%, then an error window popped up asking for a CMD.EXE disk to be inserted in D: drive, didn't have a disk but tried to click on "retry" but mouse and keyboard were dead...Refresh got to 98% then sat for about an hour then finished, over all it took about 4 hours for a simple refresh. Is it possible that there is a error in this recovery partition from the factory? Have never had something like this happen recovering other system. Have contacted Dell but they are still thinking!!   Any Ideas?

 

Thanks

From what i read you were able to restore? If everything is ok now it should be fine, but just in case i would manually make some recovery discs for your system so that if you needed to restore ever again, you will always have those to use instead of your recovery partition. The recovery partition can very easily become corrupted, having those created discs will make sure you always have a path back to the factory state
