There are no licensing issues with this method of restoration, these images were produced from the original Dell PowerVault 745N CDs that were shipped with my unit and will work with yours.
Once your payment is received I manually create your download account – usually within about 2-4 hours, depending on the time in the UK. You will receive an email from me with the access details for the ISOs.
I am doing this merely for convenience, you can of course purchase the physical media from Dell directly, be ready to pay a lot more than £10.00 for delivery! If you own the Dell PowerVault 745N, you are licensed/permitted to run this software.
Update: 8th Sept 2012 – all of my restore downloads are still available. Simply make a purchase using the “Buy Now” button in the article. Remember that its a manual process for me to create your account and send you an email, so it can take up to a day to hear from me.
