  • If you need help with Windows 7, you need to post in the correct forum.  This one is specifically for Microsoft Virtual Server 2005.

    This is a better place:


    Since you have a Dell, they should also provide you OEM support for Windows.

  • Have you used any disk partition software? The problem generally occurs when you lost the partitions of the Operating system. Try to update the MBR from respective product by downloading the software. The another option is to install newly the OS on the laptop by deleting the entire partitions including OEM. If you install Manually the OS, anyhow you may lost the Default restore partition by showing F11 Key.
