recovery and setup for optiplex gx240

  halfwit 17:51 18 Jan 2004

I have traded various bits for a Dell optiplex GX240 and would like to restore it to the original "ex Works" set up. Unfortunately I havn't got the recovery disk and Dell's site does not recognise the asset tag number. Any suggestions?

Did you get the Windows end user licence with it?

Unfortunately not!

This is only my opinion but I think without that and the serial number you'll have to buy a new OS CD.

Is there not a host drive hidden on C drive which can reset to original if you know how to get at it.

I'm not sure with Dells. It might be worth emailing them for advice.
