Restoring from the generic recovery disk image on E: Dell R620

This task restores a server to its factory default state. For example, if you neglected to make a first birthday image, you might need to use this procedure. If the image from which you are restoring was made from the same, specific machine to which it is being restored, do not use this task.
Note: This procedure restores the server (C:, D:, and E: partitions) to its factory default condition. Passwords and other site-specific configurations are reset to factory defaults.
