Acer aspire one zg5, cant restore to factory settings
Ok guys, my laptop screwed up the other day so i did the alt+f10 to restore it all was well till it gets to 96% at which point it says ' restore failed reason:0xf0000006 '
so afterwards i tried to just turn it on and all i get is NTLDR is missing
so after this i figured id make a bootable usb and re install windows but just as the re-install starts i get a beautiful blue screen of death and then the laptop re starts, im now sort of stuck for ideas, anyone have a clue?
