Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Dell Inspiron 1420 Recovery Partition (d:) has corrupted, but I had d: copied on a flash drive, how can I recover my machine to factory setting.
Back up all your files first because everything will be wiped out.
Turn on machine, Put the recovery cd on the cd rom drive, before it boots to windows hit the F1 to go into bios, on the startup set the cd rom the primary to boot machine on cd then follow the instructions from there..

Tips for a great answer:
Normally when an operating system is installed, it includes a factory reset on a drive D. To see if you have one, open my computer from the menu to view available drives. D drive should say "recovery" .if it does click on it to view the drive's contents and either click on Setup.exe or something.exe and follow the prompts. If your installation did not include a recovery partition, you may be able to download the version of windows from dell using your product key, Hope this helps
