Try starting with a bootable ISO of a similar OS, and replace the files. You will need software capable of copying and modifying iso files.

Why don't you just order the factory recovery DVD's from Dell? That usually is very inexpensive...

Or if the OS is still running, there should be a utility installed that allows you to create your own recovery DVD's.

Or you can even restore it to factory defaults by booting into the recovery partition. How that is used is explained in the PC's manual, or you should also find it on Dell's website in the help section.
