I recently wanted to do a clean install of XP home edition on my Dell Dimension 9100 machine. I did not know that Dell PCs had a PC restore feature on them (still cannot find that feature even though it says it exists on websites) I ended up reinstalling Windown on the e partition. I now have 2 operating systems on C and E partitions and I am no closr to doing my clean install than I was before. I need to know how to eliminate the E partition and how to acccess and activate the PC restore on my Dell. I tried the method suggested online of holding down the cntrol key and pressing F11 as the Dell screen appears at the startup, but that did not work.
I tried doing another clean install of XP to delete the E partition. Deleted E and then tried to quit the install process, but that did not work either. I am now faced with three choices at startup.
