Reinstall Windows without CD on a Dell

i recently found out that you could reinstall your OS without needing the CD’s on a dell.  this system is embed to almost all dell laptops for sure.  it uses norton ghost in order to restore your system to the way it was at the beginning.  i am not a 100% sure if reinstalls the drivers, but it might.

so what do you need to do in order to reinstall your OS without the CD’s on a dell laptop?  all you need to do is…

  1. turn on your laptop
  2. quickly hit ctrl+F11 before “windows boots up”
  3. then follow the instructions in order to reinstall and fully format your pc

hope this helps.  enjoy!
