Re: restore to factory, no DVD - 03-25-2009, 08:12 PM
XP or Ubuntu?
regardless, why not just reinstall the OS fresh? Whether its the factory image or a clean reinstall shouldn't matter unless you are trying to pass it off as never used/unopened box. There are instructions here for restoring the xp image and here for Ubuntu. Too labor intensive for my lazy arse. A little more info would be helpful.

I am also looking for a way to put the re-installation cd or recovery cd that came with my mini 10v on a usb stick and make it boot. I have been trying all day and I found this thread (How to: Re-image your Mini9 from Dells image for your system) and i got the usb bootable but i cant get it to run the restore.
