Dell was the last computer I saw that gave out an actually OS cd. HP and Compaq, and even emachines now have recovery partitions. They don't even give a recovery CD.

but from what I heard from this board, one person said Dell only has recovery partitions.

When did you buy the Dell computer?

Has your Dell had any problems in the past?
