I'm trying to recovery a dell xps a2010 using the recovery partition I've checked the partition in windows everything looks healthy but no matter what I do I can't boot into the recovery partition. I went to dell's site and discovered that to restore the os you must press f8 upon boot up then choose the repair option in advance boot settings but there is no such option. Also tried just using a vista oem cd and inputting the license key but it would let me using that key saying that to use it I'd have to boot into windows first and run it from there. upon doing so I realized reinstalling the os from there wouldn't let me delete and reformat the partitions. Also knowing how other dells are I've tried pressing ctrl and f11 upon boot up. nothing happened. any ideas?
