Default How to creat recovery partition with recovery image in vista to restore the system

Hi nisar6788

One thing you need to know is the letter name of your Vista Recovery
Partition (NOT Dell Recovery Partition). In my case it was "E".

The procedure is as follows

(1) Boot to WinRE using the Dell Vista DVD, i.e. F12 etc.
(2) After Windows loads, select language/keyboard options and click on
(3) On Install Windows menu select "Repair your computer".
(4) on System Recovery Options menu select "Next".
(5) On System Recovery Options menu click on "Command Prompt".
(6) Type "path e:\windows;e:\windows\system32" and press ENTER key.
(7) Type "e:" and press ENTER key.
(8) Type "cd tools" and press ENTER key.
(9) Type "PCRestore" and press ENTER key and Dell Factory Image
Restore window will appear.
(10) Click on "Next" and Confirm Data Deletion dialog will appear.
(11) Place a "check mark" beside "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore
system software to factory condition" for the final confirmation and
click on "Next" when ready. Note: The restoration process takes
approximately 10 to 15 minutes, the format bar will run back and forth.
(12) Click "Finish" to reboot system!

Instead of talking about what OEMs usually do or referring people to
third party software packages, could you please simply address using
Vista's disk management facility?

My main drive has a 5GB recovery partition that is not FAT32 or NTFS and
it does NOT have a drive letter assigned. That suggests that one should
select "Do not assign a drive letter or drive path" and should not
format the partition.
