WHAT CAN CAUSE PC RESTORE TO FAIL?
If the hidden DSR (Dell System Restore) partition is removed
If the MBR (Master Boot Record) is modified in any way (such as if you load the Vista Upgrade over XP)
If you change the MBR but the pointers to the DSR partition are left, the DSR will boot, detect that the MBR has changes, and flash a screen that informs you that the MBR has changed and that image restore will not run
If you create additional partitions, changing the MBR, Dell PC Restore will be disabled to prevent it from overwriting these partitions that may contain critical data during a restore operation
If you add a second SATA drive and migrate to a RAID array using the Intel applications accelerator in windows, running PC Restore will put the image back on C:\, but the system will not boot since the boot sector is looking for the ATA driver (factory image) and the bios is looking for the RAID driver (migrated configuration)
If any of these occur, you cannot set the system back to Factory condition. You must manually load the operating system, drivers, and all application software.
