during startup. If the recovery partition is intact, you may be able to format and reload everything. If F11 doesn't work, check with Dell.com for the correct key.
hello everyone, i just joined the forums and this is my first post. my cousin gave me a dell Inspiron computer running windows 7 64bit home preminum. it was loaded with a bunch of stuff so i went ahead and did a factory image restore, everything completed without error and it told me to restart. when i restarted it flashed a BSOD and sent me to startup repair. startup repair could not fix the problem so now i am unable to boot up at all. safe mode/safe mode with networking both do the exact same thing. i cannot boot into windows at all. i dont understand when the computer was running fine just an hour ago. now after a factory restore it wont boot into windows. i just ordered discs from dell to try and boot windows 7 from the cd, other than that i am all out of ideas and any input would be appreciated.
