Ok started to upload 8.1 64 bit. You can find them here

http://ttz123.com/files/Windows/

Again, download all the parts. Some browsers will ask if you want to keep the first one (it is an EXE file it is safe i assure you) it will then extract an ISO file. These are unmodified ISO's straight from the disk. Nothing added, no updates, no nothing, straight up windows. Again you will either need to burn it to a dual Layer DVD or use ISOtoUSB to put it on a thumb drive and boot from thumb drive (8GB or bigger needed) Also 8.1 should have all the drivers. Again not sure if 8.1 will work out of the box (i would assume it would and I have a 3020 that I could test it on as well) But if 8.1 doesn't activate then download windows 8 and then just upgrade from there by 1) Updating Windows 8 all the way, 2) then look in the App store for 8.1, 3) then upgrade, 4) then update all the way again to get the update 1. If you need any help just ask.

I JUST started the upload here at 2:50 PM Pacific time. it will take about 3-4 hours for all the files to be uploaded so i would wait till tonight/Tomorrow. You will know when a file is done bceause it will be 700MB in size. I have to split them or the FTP will time out on the upload. I'm thinking there will be about 8 parts or so. the last one won't be 700MB

Check the service TAG on it and enter it in Dell support site , you can download all the drivers and software for your system.

The 3020's are suppose to be windows 8 machines but come with window 7 downgrade's and usually have windows 7 installed when they get to you. They do NOT have Product stickers with them since they are activated though the BIOS.

The Optiplex's should also come with Recovery DVD's. They are Windows 8 though and not Windows 7. If you want the Dell OEM Windows 7 ISO you can get it from my pesonal site here. You have to download all the files, then extract the ISO then burn it to a DVD (need a Dual Layer DVD 8.5GB or use a program like ISOtoUSB to boot off a thumb drive (8GB or bigger needed)

http://ttz123.com/files/Windows/

And then go here to download drivers

http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/optiplex-9020-desktop/drivers

Get the drivers first as Windows 7 does not have the Network drivers built into it. The driver you will need are

Chipset (All of them)
Network (Intel) and if you have wireless which they don't normally come with but if you do then the Dell 1540 Wifi drivers
Video - The Intel HD if all you have is onboard video

If you want windows 8.1 Let me know. I have those disk to that I can upload.

It has all version on there (Home, Pro, Ultimate) but only Home or Pro will auto Activate though and will only work if the Dell came with at least windows 7 (If it came with 8 8.1 or 10 it will activate just fine as well)

I don't have any drivers built into that disk as I mainly work with images but that one had a lot of updates in it i beleive.
