Is this a factory recovery drive or one you made with some backup software? If you made it you may need the program that made it to make it work. Acronis uses a rescue disk to access the image when restoring.

Hello and welcome to the forums. I have read recently that some may require holding the Ctrl key while simultaneously tapping the F11 key to successfully enter the manufacturer's recovery option. Also try F8 as well as F10, if this is a factory W7 install then the manufacturer's recovery options may have been included in the advanced boot options menu. If all else fails, try Dell tech support, phone, email or chat and see if they can be of any help.
Good luck and keep us posted

Use the F8 and Repair my Computer. I had a dell image also

GEEZ- had different language and it wouldn't set back to English. Finally figured out
Put in
Code:

Generally if you are having problems with the language that is currently displaying when you visit the site you can change it as desired for the current session by selecting the approriate flag at the bottom of the page. Alternately you can use your settings link at the top of the page to change your default language selection.
Hope this helps
