Is the d2d erecovery function enabled in the bios?
To check, activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST; while the notebook PC logo is being displayed.
To enable D2D recovery ard disk recovery), select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen.
Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled.
That should allow you to use the F10 function key to activate D2D.
* Note: D2D e-recovery is not in Acer Empowering Management.
AEM is a power management utility that supports ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) which allows for maximum power conservation and maximum performance. (Managed by the windows OS)

Unfortunately once your original HDD has been replaced you lose all e-recovery features and there is no-way this can be reversed.
If you could get hold of the image from your old drive you maybe able to write it to your new, its a bit messy though.
The main reason for the "factory default image backup" you have not working now is because a snapshot of the C: drive is stored on D: drive so when you replaced the drive itself you basically made that disc useless for eRecovery features.
Sorry its bad news.

yes, it will reformat and install everything you came with new, I own one and have had to recover it twice, but never use another manufacturers os disk on anything but the intended unit as it can cause conflicts or serious ir recoverable harm to the unit.
