  1. Restoring a Dell System Running Windows XP.

    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.
  2. Step 6 Restore a Dell System Running Windows Vista

    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.

I also was heading with this problem. My solution is simple. Just follow this step-by-step solution below:

1. Make your USB pendrive Windows 7 starter from another computer.
2. Once you have done that, format your Dell Inspiron Mini by using your Bootable USB Windows 7 Setup
3. DO NOT ERASE OEM Partition and the RECOVERY PARTITION while you setup a new OS on your Inspiron Mini.
4. After Windows Setup completed, go to Dell Driver & Support website and download the Dell Backup and Recovery Manager.
5. Install the software which you have been downloaded and after finished RUN the software and select System Restore.
6. You are DONE.
