Not d2d system

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 will need to send it to Acer to get the D2D system back, it's pretty much impossible for the end user to do.

My Acer netbook aspire one just shut down on its own one day. Now it will only stay on for 25 seconds before turning off by itself completely! I tried going to setup - 25 sec. Regular boot -- 25 secs Safe...


You may have a Virus, try a factory restore. As you know, the Acer computers and those of other manufacturers are now delivered with a system of restoration installed in a hidden partition of your hard disk. This system launches out while pressing keys ALT+F10 simultaneously. And sometimes for various reasons this system ceases functioning.
The first cause often comes owing to the fact that function D2D Recovery is disable in the bios (menu principal).

The solution : enable the function and try to press keys ALT+F10 during the starting of the computer.

The second cause : in this case hidden partition PQSERVICE was erased or damaged, or you replaced the disc and in this case it is not present.

The solution : If you did not previously make a backup of your system by making an image disc. It will not be possible to use the D2D recovery. Your only hope will be to have in your possession Acer Recovery CD/DVD.

And the third causes : the Acer Master Boot Record (MBR)was damaged or replaced by non-Acer MBR. As long as partition PQSERVICE is present or that you can put the hand on the necessary Acer files you can reinstall the MBR of Acer.

The solution :

First method : on a functional Windows system:

1 disable the D2D recovery option of the bios.
2 open a Windows session with an account administrator.
3 Download, unzip and launch partedit32(registration required for download).
markymoo: ptedit32


4 Identify the Pqservice partition by its size (at the bottom of the partedit window there is a partition information box) it is a small sized partition approximately 2 to 6 Go.Once made change the type of your partition into 0C and save. Restart and open a session with an administrator account, you should be able to navigate to the PQservice partition. Seek these two files mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin once localised open a command prompt and launch this command mbrwrdos.exe install rtmbr.bin, this will install the Acer MBR. Close the command prompt window restart again Windows go into the bios and reactivate the D2D recovery. Now ALT+F10 should launch Acer recovery at the starting of the computer.

Second method : On a nonfunctional Windows system.

For that you must use a Linux distribution (for me Mandriva provided all the tools necessary).

1 Boot on the Mandriva install CD/DVD the boot menu will give you the possibility to repair or to restore the Windows boot loader.
2 If that is not enough launch an installation of linux(this will be an occasion to test this terrible OS) and choose LILO as boot loader(a boot menu that allow you to choose between several operating systems) once finished the installation. Restart your computer in the boot loader menu system you will have at least 2 Windows options the first generally point to PQservice choose it and you will boot directly into acer D2D recovery. __________________

Acer MBR pqservice


Go check this out, maybe it will help. It shouldn't matter what model you have, it should work (your link also). Be sure to read thru them carefully and if you think it's to much to handle then you might need a qualified technician to perform this operation. If you don't want to go thru all this then I'd suggest reinstalling the OS with a XP or Vista disk, this would 728735be easier and if something happened to the OS again, then you have a disk to reinstall in.

D2d recovery


Hello Sir / Madam,

Many Acer systems come with the ability to press ALT+F10 to kick off the Acer Recovery applications from a special hidden recovery partition. Sometimes this won’t work and there can be a number of reasons.
1. D2D Recovery is “Disabled” in the BIOS (Main menu).
FIX: Enabled it and try pressing ALT+F10 again as the computer boots.
2. The Acer hidden recovery partition (PQSERVICE) has been removed or damaged. If the disk drive is a replacement drive then you won’t have this partition.
FIX: Unless you have previously imaged the PQSERVICE partition it will not be possible to use D2D recovery. You will need to restore from the Acer Recovery CD/DVD.
3. You have converted the FAT32 partition on the hard drives into NTFS. Acer D2D recovery won’t be available if you perform this conversion. Ironic that NTFS is a more desirable disk format to use but Acer won’t support this in their systems!
FIX: Restore your system from the recovery CD/DVD media.
4. The special Acer Master Boot Record (MBR) has become corrupt or has been overwritten with an non Acer MBR. As long as the PQSERVICE partition is there or you can get your hands on a couple of Acer service files for your model, then you can remake the special Acer MBR. Let’s cover how this is done.
  1. Disable D2D recovery in the BIOS. Can be found in the “Main” menu section. Save the BIOS settings and exit.
  2. Log into Windows with an “administrator” level account.
  3. Download ParTEDIT32.ZIP (registration required for download).
  4. Extract PTEDIT32.EXE from the zip archive and run it.
  5. Identify the PQSERVICE partition by its type or size. It is likely to be 12 or another custom value and is likely to be reasonably small in comparison to the other normal partitions - see the example below from a working factory default Acer. Click the Link below see the image full size. http://www.roundtripsolutions.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/
  6. 2007/10/AcerDiskRecoveryBroken_F031/hidden.jpg
    Change the type to “07′ (Installable File System NTFS, HPFS) and “Save Changes”.
  7. Reboot the computer and login with an “administrator” level account.
  8. You should then be able to open up a command prompt and navigate to the PQSERVICE drive.
  9. Enter the following command at the command prompt:
    mbrwrdos.exe install rtmbr.bin
    - You may have to search for these files and change into the relevant directory.
    Note: This step writes the Acer MBR, with mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin being the special service files.
  10. Close the command prompt window and reboot.
  11. Go into the BIOS again and enable D2D Recovery. Save the BIOS settings and exit.
  12. ALT+F10 should now start Acer Recovery as the computer starts.
  13. The Acer MBR ensures the PQSERVICE partition is hidden therefore there is no need to reset the partition type back to 07 - well there shouldn’t be if all has gone well. If you need to manually reset it then run PTEDIT32.EXE again, set the partition to 12, or whatever the original value was, and save the changes to complete the process. Reboot and it should now be hidden.
If Windows is unbootable, due to whatever issue, you can always use the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBCD4Win) along with a copy of PTEDIT32.EXE to achieve the same results. Likewise, use UBCD4Win along with PTEDIT32.EXE if the PQSERVICE partition is being changed back to a hidden one by the existing MBR. We’ll leave that as an exercise for those who need to do it! It has been pointed out in the comments that UBCD4Win already has an application that will do partition maintenance, so checkout TestDisc if you go down that road.
If this is a new drive or someone has completely wiped the drive, including the hidden partitions, it may be necessary to use partitioning software to recreate the partitions that the Acer Recovery system is expecting! You’ll also need to restore an image of the recovery partition from a previously made backup, so it is worth making that backup image straight away while the laptop is still new and shiny, and certainly well in advance of any problem.
A final word or two of caution: take great caution when playing around with partitions on an Acer system… you have been warned… and remember to make the backup media disks as soon as you fire the computer up for the first time!


Thanks
Good Luck

D2d recovery


Send me an e-mail and I will send you the fix! If you can't downloadload it from the below link. I had the same problem. The mbr was replaced, you have to add RTMBR.BIN to the MBR and it will work again. As long as you can get on your desktop and run this bat file you will repair the D2D again. Took me an hour to learn what was wrong, It works 100% though.

 

I have the Aspire 5610Z with the 2GB 533 mhz memory Stock.
