Windows installation disk from Dell

  jz 20:38 11 Oct 2007

From click here ... "If you didn't get an install disc with that box when you bought it - and some vendors don't bother, instead slapping restore files in a hidden partition on the hard drive, which has been, of course, copied over by Vista - you may be able to pry one from the reseller. Dell owners, for instance, can use an online form to request one free copy of the install CD."

Does anyone have a link to this form on the Dell website?

If you just type in "On-line form to request Dell owners free copy xp disc" in the line where it says 'Go'

that should take you to where you enter your relevant details...

Thanks everyone. I couldn't find the UK version, but did find their online chat thing. It was great - they told me that my "re-installation disk" could be used to install my PC back to factory defaults (ie with all the "junkware"), or it could be used to re-install just Vista. They were extremely helpful.
