How do I reinstall the original software on my CCI computer?

There are three ways to restore your computer to the factory install.

Recovery Disc Set:

You can obtain a set of recovery discs from Software Acquisitions by contacting them at software@unc.edu about obtaining a set for your specific model. Once you have the appropriate Recovery Disc set, insert Disc 1 in the CD-Rom drive and restart the computer. Then follow the instructions to recover your computer.

Across the UNC Campus Network:

You can reinstall your computers operating system and software using the on-campus ImageUltra servers. This method will give you the most up-to-date version of software available for your computer.

Service Partition:

Every CCI computer with an original CCI software load contains all the data needed to restore the computer to the original state on a hidden partition on the hard drive. This Service Partition can be used to restore your computer without any external media or network access.
