    Restore Windows 8.1 laptop to Factory


    I have a DELL XPS 15 (9530) La[top that I am selling. I need to reset it to factory. I went through all the steps until it asked me for a Windows disk.
    This laptop does not have an optical drive. Is there a way around this? The person is coming tomorow 08/01/2020 to pick it up.

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    Windows 7 vs 8.1 for SandyBridge i3 laptop

    Something doesn't make sense to me , you want to chose between 7 or 8.1 but 10 is clearly a step up from 8.1. I'm curios what makes you want to consider 8.1 but not 10 ?
