twice now i have been able to access a system recovery program to recover two dell machines to factory settings by just hitting the ctrl and f11 keys together, even though both machines did not show any recovery partitions or have any recovery programs in the program list. I did notice that the program was a norton ghost program. NOW here is my question ,, are there any other hot key methods to start system recovery programs using the recover partitions even the hidden ones, and what are the names of those computers that they work on ,, a list of these keys or a web site to research this would be great. Also is it possible to install these partitions and then clone a image to that partition and make it work as a recovery partition . thanks

There may be many possibilities since the key choice is arbitrary. It would work better if you listed the machine you are trying to recover and someone could tell you what key-presses to use.
