Turn off and reboot your computer. When you see the Windows flash screen, depress "CTRL" and "F11". Be sure to press them simultaneously and release them simultaneously.
Select "Restore" in the "Dell PC to restore by Symantec" window and press "Enter".
Highlight and select "Confirm" when the message shows that you wiill lose all data if you continue. This will begin the restore process. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so. When it's done, you should receive a message that states the system recovery process was successful.
Select "Finish" to complete the process and restart your system.
Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears. If you wait until after the screen appears and then press "F8", it's too late and you'll have to reboot the system and try again.
Navigate to the "Repair your computer" option
Select the appropriate language and click "Next".
Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.
Select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next".
Place a check in the check box next to the text that says "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore System Software to factory condition" and click "Next".
Click "Finish" to complete the process. This will reboot your computer.

If you had a data backup already. Start your mini and maybe a blue bar will appear at the top of the screen like: www.dell.com. Inmediately you see this, try to press Ctrl + F11 to begin the restore utility. Or simply keep pressing those keys combination just after you switch on the mini.
I hope this helps. Thanks

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?
Please try the following steps:
You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
Hope it helps. Thank you for using FixYa.
