This is a message that is given with a blue screen? If so then it is a Common error message for Missing NTLDR. Reinstall OS again. What version of Windows and how far into the Restore are you getting to when you get this issue? Also, it could be an issue with the restore image/files that you are using that is causing the problem.
If you are recovering to a new harddrive, because your original HD crashed or is about to crash or can't boot, then find a tool (GPartEd is free and works) to format the entire disk to an NTFS partition. If you want to split the partition to OS and "other", Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit needs at least 100Gb. Basically: PRE-PARTITION before trying to restore to a new HD. To me, these other answers are misleading.

Did you install a new hard drive in the Acer? They have had problems when trying to restore windows onto a new drive or trying to use system restore on the existing drive. The same error message comes up.
It seems that when the pqservice partition is not on the drive, the recovery DVD won't work if the drive contains any partition (Restore Failed - reason 0xa000000e) is all you will see.
However, try deleting everything on the drive (leaving only unpartitioned space) before putting in the recovery DVD. The eRecovery tool first says that it is repartitioning the drive and then starts the install successfully.
I hope this helps.
This could be caused by a corrupted operating system, a virus or a faulty memory card. You may first try to restore your computer to a date when you think it last allowed you to download something. See if it works.
To run system restore, go to start>all programs>accessories>system restore.
