  3. Select OK from the confirmation message. A progress indicator displays while the files are being restored.
  4. Select OK from the confirmation message. The Diagnostic Tool shuts down, then reboots and the system recovery portion of the operation begins.
  5. Follow any on-screen prompts.The Diagnostic Tool shuts down and reboots a second time. 

When the Home screen displays, the procedure is complete and the Diagnostic Tool is ready for use.
