Hi. I recently bought an acer aspire 5720g that came with vista home premium. I repartitioned my hard drive and deleted the pqservice (hidden) partition. After that i installed vista ultimate and then I tried to install acer erecovery but i got the following message: "not d2d system, erecovery cannot be istalled". D2D recovery is enabled in bios and i haven't any recovery disks. Acer support site says that erecovery needs a specific partitioning structure to work, so i thought that creating a partition with the same size as the pqservice partition (around 10 GB in my model) at the beggining of the hard drive erecovery could work. So i use acronis disk director to do that but i have the same result. Please tell me if there is a way to install erecovery. Thank you in advance!

You can do it without disk to but for it should be hiddden partition is installled when your vista is load first time.For that There is one option in bios D2d enable it .then save settings. For enter bios when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then go to main menu find D2d then enable then save and exit. Then when it restart press ALT +F2 then you see recovery mode follow the procedure and wiped acer. But if there is not any recoverry then you need recovery disk.
