    Dell Factory Image Restore


    I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 but I would like to go back to Win 7. It's past the 30 days and so I can't roll back via Win 10. When I use F8, I see that the Dell Factory Image Restore is no longer an option. However, I do have a recovery drive for Win 7. Has Win 10 prevented me from accessing the recovery drive? If so, how do I get around this?

    :)

  2. RESTORE DELL FACTORY IMAGE

    in theory yes you should be able to use option 2, as long as you have backed up your stuff

    RESTORE DELL FACTORY IMAGE

    Thank you georgebaker. I've had a go and it was fine till I got to step 5. At that point there is no option 3. I can use option 1 and keep my files, or option 2 which removes everything. I spent all afternoon backing up everything on to disks, so would
    I be able to use option 2 and remove everything then restore it all from the disks? Wouldn't I then just end up where I started? I'm just about at the end of my tether. I spent 3 hours yesterday trying to get my emails to work and I've been trying to sort
    out everything else since 7 o'clock this morning. I've tried everything I can think of. Maybe I should go for option 2 and keep my fingers crossed.
