Default Wanting to Revert Dell Mini 10V Back to Factory Settings - So I can Sell - 08-03-2010, 12:33 PM

Can someone please HELP!?

I had a successful Snow Leopard Hackintosh and did the recent upgrade 10.6.2 and broke the the hack... thats not my problem;

I want to revert the Dell Mini 10V back to its original factory settings but can;t get into the f8 Boot repair menu as i think the Hackintosh programing removed this option

I don't have an external optical drive, just a WD passport USB drive and my macbook pro.

Can someone please help me in getting it back to factory setting so I can sell the Dell Mini 10V???

You probably wiped the restore partition installing OS X.
Only thing your going to be able to do is either get/borrow/rig up an external optical drive and use the Windows CD that came with it, or copy the files from said Windows CD onto the USB.
In BIOS settings go in and set whichever method you choose to first boot device and disable the HD as a boot device.
