You may refer to the manual from dell on how to do it.  Available from:

Dell claims it contains the information (I don't have dell):

"For instructions on how to restore to a Factory Image, refer to the latest version of the Dell Backup and Recovery Manager User's Guide, under the section Restoring your system from the Windows Recovery Environment.

Sorry, if you have already referred it and it doesn't have the info you need.

Call Dell support.

[I assume you have tried "Control + F11" and F8 (Advanced Boot options, repair, and then Dell Factory Image Restore) routes already].
