Ubuntu 7.04/OS Reinstallation
- The OS can be re-installed any time on any Dell factory-installed system.
- The re-installation process is invoked from GRUB menu at boot time.
- The verbiage the customer sees before confirming the re-installation is:
Warning:Warning:Warning This program will restore your system to the original Factory configuration. All personal files and changes on this system will be lost. That information will not be recoverable. If you wish to proceed, please type: RESTORE TO FACTORY DEFAULT
The user is expected to type exactly the string above (i.e. RESTORE TO FACTORY DEFAULT)
The re-install process re-images the disk (and deletes any existing user data!), runs firstboot at the end to allow customer to select system language, keyboard language, time zone and administration user.
