F12 maybe? Was win 7 the original software, if not when win 7 installed I believe you lost the restore partition.

The F key designations are not determined by Windows, but by the BIOS (software that loads before Windows). I have seen almost every choice of F key used, but the most common are F12, F10, F8, F2. Only Dell knows what version of BIOS they installed on that specific model.
