Performing a Factory Reset from BIOS (Microsoft Windows)

This recovery process resets the workstation OS to the factory default and performs Out-of-Box configuration. This process takes about 15 minutes. If a Supervisor Password is set, it will be used to enter the BIOS to Enable Recovery.

To perform system recovery from the BIOS:
  1. Power on or restart the workstation.
  2. Enter the BIOS by tapping either the right or left bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap Advanced, and then tap Special Configuration.
  4. Tap Factory Recovery.
  5. Select Enabled from drop-down menu.
  6. Tap Home.
  7. Tap Save and Exit.
  8. Tap Exit Saving Changes, and then tap Yesto confirm. The Compact Workstation 310 automatically restarts.
  9. On the Choose an Option screen, tap Troubleshoot.
  10. On the Troubleshoot screen, tap Factory Reset.
  11. Type Y to reset the Windows partition to the factory default.
When the restoration is complete and the workstation restarts, you can begin the operating system setup.
