F8 Key Startup recovery

This question is not answered

The F8 key will not get me into recovery. I know my key works fine, I had GRUB(ubuntu) dual booted so i had to repair MBR(easyBCB2.2) is what I had to use, I do not have a boot disk. It did not come with my XPS. How can I get into the Recovery screen to do a full system factory restore. (I am going to update to windows 8 and just want to do everything from scratch 100% fresh and I want my dell recovery to work properly first.)

    I understand that you do not have the resource disk, so please private message the system service tag, contact number and registered owner’s name and address. I will check with the availability of the disk.
