There is no factory image on the Minis like there is on Dell's other Laptops and Desktops.
You can request the System Restoration CDs from Dell, though, which perform what the Factory Image Restore utility does on regular Dells. It probably won't be easy and they'll probably tell you there is no such thing.....but they CAN create them for you. It may take speaking with a supervisor or two.
On the other hand, depending on the phase of the moon or something, I've had times when I've gotten them shipped by the first person I spoke with.
These aren't the regular reinstallation disks that ship with the computer.
