|Some, but not all,10v netbooks have a recovery partition - no |
idea why some don't, but try pressing F8 on boot and look for the
Dell recovery option. If it isn't there then your best option is to
see if you can beg/borrow a USB external DVD drive.
Oh, & in answer to your original question, there's no way to piggy-back another laptop's optical drive onto it I'm afraid.
