How can I restore my Dell Dimension e310?

by epastrana / April 14, 2013 8:15 PM PDT

I have a Dell Dimension e310 with XP Media Center. I don't have the recovery disc and I would like to restore it like when it was new. I've read that it is possible to reformat the Hard Drive by pressing F11 when rebooting. Is this true?
