|"What Ive basicly got here is corrupted registry that wont let me access recovery console or reinstall windows from CD." A corrupt Registry has nothing to do with being able to run Recovery Console or run a Windows Repair OR reinstall.|
Right after post, you'll see in the upper right-hand corner two function commands: F2 to Enter Setup, and F12 to load the boot menu. When the boot menu comes up, select the internal CD drive and make sure the Dell Reinstallation CD is in the drive. Then, watch the screen carefully, and press any key to boot to the CD when prompted.
Select the option to setup windows, then run a Repair NOT Recovery Console.
