Unless you already have an image of the utility partition, you don't/can't reinstall or recover it.

However, everything on the utility partition is available for download from Dell, so you'd download the diagnostics tools/utility you're looking for from their support site - this is the page for the PE2900 - burn it to disk and boot from that instead.

that utility is for Windows? – rkmax Jan 4 '13 at 15:35
@rkmax Depends what utility you're talking about. Their diagnostic utilities usually boot into their own environment, whereas their management utilities generally have Linux and Windows versions available. – HopelessN00b Jan 4 '13 at 18:30
