Cannot Re-install Windows from Recovery DVD's ACER 5610-4179

Hello

When I try to re-install my operating system with my recovery disks it will always stop at DOTNETFX/ file and won't continue. It is an ACER Aspire 5610-4179 laptop. I was successfully able to install windows xp pro but not xp home. Anything I am missing? Thanks for any help!

Hello,
Your recovery disks must be scratched or files are corrupted. Since you have successfully installed XP Pro, why not stay with it as it's better than Home?
If you have a restoration partition on your C drive, you may be able to revert to your original configuration from it. And if you insist on XP Home or only have a valid product key for home, you can borrow a disk from anyone who has a good copy.
I hope this helps.

Where can i buy a recovery CD for my Acer Extensa


This recovery process helps you restore the C: drive with the original software
content that is installed when you purchase your notebook. Follow the steps
below to rebuild your C: drive. (Your C: drive will be reformatted and all data
will be erased.) It is important to back up all data files before using this option.
Before performing a restore operation, please check the BIOS settings.
1 Check to see if Acer disk-to-disk recovery is enabled or not.
2 Make sure the D2D Recovery setting in Main is Enabled.
3 Exit the BIOS utility and save changes. The system will reboot.
Note: To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during POST.

To start the recovery process:
1 Restart the system.
2 While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3 Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
Important! This feature occupies 10 GB in a hidden partition on

Follow etaf's instructions above, if you cannot enter the Acer recovery utility try this...

Do not press and hold Alt + F10. Do it like this... From the Acer splash screen press and hold the Alt key while constantly pecking the F10 key.

However, you want to save all of your photos, favorites folder, music etc. on an external disk or flash drive before entering the Acer restore utility above. Anything that DID NOT come pre-installed on your netbook will be lost. Once restored, always, always, always back up your system with an external disk or flash drive as you go, meaning that as you add legitimate software and personal files to your PC and your PC works normally, back it up. It's cheap and the next time this happens you can enter plug in your flash or disk run the restore, and have EVERYTHING back including the stuff that did not come on your system when you bought it.
