Question about Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Notebook

1 Answer

Trying to recover various programs (including office)

I have an Acer Aspire 5002WLMi which recently crashed, so I used the System Recovery CD to restore Windows XP, and it worked fine. I also want to recover Microsoft Office. The computer came with three additional Recovery CD's (Disk 1, 2 and 3 of 3) which I believe have all of the preinstalled software (including office). I explored Disk 1 of 3, and it contains a file folder named "images" as well as 2 files named Model.dat and RCD.dat. Sadly, I can't figure out how to recover the information contained within these 3 recovery CD's. I've gone through the eRecovery (Alt-F10) program, and read countless user guides and help files, but I can't find the solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My bios has always been cd boot first. I've already booted from the system recovery cd to restore Windows, but I was never prompted to insert any other cd's. I have also tried booting up with the "Recovery CD 1 of 3" in the cd drive, but it wasn't recognized as a bootable cd.



    And yes, my wife insists that office was part of the package when she bought it, along with norton, photoshop, and a host of other software.

When you do not have recovery disks it is not uncommon for the manufacturer to have included in your preloaded programs one to make recovery disks or to recover the computer from special files included in your hard drive.

Check your manual for the details. If nada there then you may be able to purchase a set of recovery disks from Acer.

It very well may be a BIOS limitation. How old is the PC/Motherboard, and what model? Also, Windows has a 137GB limitation without at least SP1, if I remember correctly.

To start the system recovery:

  1. Restart the netbook.

If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. In order to recover the system using Acer Recovery Media, an external optical disc drive is required.

  3. Press the Left Arrow key until you've selected Boot.
  4. Ensure that the external optical drive is plugged into a USB port.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to USB CDROM.
  6. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  7. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  8. Press the F10 key and then the Enter key to save the changes and restart the netbook.
  9. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  10. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD. Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
  11. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media you may purchase recovery media online. If your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery please contact Acer Support.
