If you change any of the partitions or format you will loose the ability to quick restore to the factory settings.
To give you something to fall back on, you can make the Dell DataSafe DVDs or USB. Using these will give you exactly the factory settings should something go wrong. See the video here: How to Create a Recovery USB for your Dell / Alienware Computer.
Next with regards to genuine Windows the most recommended way is to use a Dell Windows 7 Reinstallation DVD. However you will need to contact Dell Technical Support to request one. Here are the customer numbers. This is the best way as the DVD will automatically activate within the Dell BIOS.
You can also use the retail media to create a bootable USB or DVD for reinstalling Windows 7. With this media you use the product key on the COA supplied with your laptop but unfortunately you have to activate via automated phone activation, so your Windows should be genuine.
