Dell factory restore when pc recovery is missing

I have worked on several dell machines with vista and windows 7 that for whatever reason don't have the dell factory restore option in the repair console. It is still possible to perform a factory restore as long as the restore partition is intact. I found this blog post and while the steps in the post do work I found that the steps posted in a comment to the post works even better.

that didn't work for me, but the following command prompt line entries did:

path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32
d:
cd tools
pcrestore

Please keep in mind that this only works for dells with windows vista or windows 7. If you have a dell with windows xp and are having trouble running the factory restore I suggest you read this excellent website.
