2nd update - totally unexpected but welcome :-).
 
After I got nowhere with Dell and pulled the key from the hard drive I stopped thinking about it but I found a workaround since Dell buzzed me off and told me to buy another DVD (LOL no. It's the generic image with OEM SetupComplete added; the disc probably had a scratch that hampered it looking back). I'd have to sooner or later because I won't get that access again.

The solution I settled on since Dell blew me off and told me to buy another DVD (you can't even find these on eBay; just the 8.1 USB which may not work!) is to use NTLite and add the OEM SetupComplete under Unattended to force the matter. Yes I can burn my own DVD that works now since it's basically no different from what Dell shipped with it but I put it on a USB drive since I didn't have any DVDs on hand at the time I tried this. I added nothing else so I can use this USB key on other machines and did no additional configuration like add XPS 8500 drivers and make it “special”. Don't buy the DVD from Dell if you run into this; download the 8.1 image from Microsoft and force it to listen.
 
I also kept the key on the root directory of the drive in case I need to put the fire out again should I need to reinstall on a basic text file.
