Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Open Question

I can restore the whole c drive from start menu Acer eRecovery Management without problem. However, after I created 2 DVD recovery disks successfully, I changed the boot menu from bios to boot from IDE1 ( ODD ) then reboot from recovery disk 1. However, after it booted up several minutes, it showed a notice warning : "Please complete operating system setup process before doing system recovery". Then the system will reboot. I got the same message if I press ALT F10 while reboot. I have not repartition nor update bios before. Any one knows which part might go wrong?

SOURCE: d2d recovery

Is the d2d erecovery function enabled in the bios?

To check, activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST; while the notebook PC logo is being displayed.

To enable D2D recovery ard disk recovery), select Main from the categories listed at the top of the screen.

Find D2D Recovery at the bottom of the screen and use the <F5> and <F6> keys to set this value to Enabled.

That should allow you to use the F10 function key to activate D2D.
* Note: D2D e-recovery is not in Acer Empowering Management.
AEM is a power management utility that supports ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) which allows for maximum power conservation and maximum performance. (Managed by the windows OS)

SOURCE: d2d recovery

Hi,

Unfortunately once your original HDD has been replaced you lose all e-recovery features and there is no-way this can be reversed.

If you could get hold of the image from your old drive you maybe able to write it to your new, its a bit messy though.

The main reason for the "factory default image backup" you have not working now is because a snapshot of the C: drive is stored on D: drive so when you replaced the drive itself you basically made that disc useless for eRecovery features.

Sorry its bad news.

Cheers

How to factory reset without recovery disk


When you need to recover part or all of the files on your Acer Veriton M460 desktop computer, Acer makes it easy to do by offering a built-in recovery program called eRecovery Management.
This option uses clean operating system files, usually stored on a separate partition of your hard drive, to correct errors or return the system to its original factory settings.
You can also use this program to write separate hard copies of the eRecovery program onto CDs or DVDs in case of hard drive failure.
Create Backup Disks

If your M460 did not come with separate recovery disks, and many machines don't in recent years, you can create your own through "Acer's eRecovery Management" program located under the "Start" menu.
Click on "Backup," select "Create Factory Default Disk" and follow the on-screen directions.
The program will inform you of the number of CDs or DVDs you need and help you through their creation.
Recovery with Disks
To use your created disks for recovery, place the first disk in the optical drive and reboot the system. As it boots, hold the "ALT" key and tap "F10" repeatedly until the computer boots and you see a screen titled "Starting Acer eRecovery."
You will see three options for recovery: to factory default, from user backup or from CD/DVD. Choose the option you desire and follow the on-screen directions to initiate the recovery sequence.
Recovery from the Hard Drive

Since Acer places the eRecovery Management program directly onto the computer, you can run the recovery option while in your desktop.
Open the "Acer eRecovery Management" program under the "Start" menu and click "Restore." You can choose to restore the computer to factory defaults and lose all the personal data stored on the hard drive or only restore the operating system and leave your data intact.
Select "Yes" on the confirmation screen and then "OK" to start the program.
Recovery Vs. Restore
When performing computer problem solving, the term "recovery" is often used interchangeably with the word "restore."
In some cases, "recovery" can mean to simply correct problems, such as replacing corrupted operating system files with good ones.
The term can also refer to "recovering" the system to its fresh-from-the-factory state, which is what "restore" means as well.
Restore Drivers or Applications

Acer's eRecovery Management program also offers the option to reinstall drivers or applications, which could become corrupted or damaged over time.
This option allows you to replace the current drivers for your Windows operating system with the ones originally installed on your system.
Under the "Restore" tab of the "Acer eRecovery Management" program, click "Reinstall Drivers or Applications" to see the content list and select the files you'd like to recover.

    I want to reset it


    Unlike other laptops, Acer laptops integrate a computer management utility called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data, create restore point, reinstall applications & drivers, and reset Acer laptop to factory setting.

    Step 1: Before starting your Acer laptop, ensure that there is no external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.

    Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.

    Step 3: When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

    Step 4: Again click 'Next' to reset your Acer laptop. This process will erase all data from your hard disk and reset your Acer laptop to original factory settings.

    Step 5: Click 'OK' in the notification window to begin the the resetting operation. Now wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

    Tips: You can also create a backup copy of your laptop data before factory reset. Simply click 'Backup' in 'Acer eRecovery Management' window.

    After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

    You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
    section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
    1 Boot to Windows XP.
    2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
    3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
    4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and

    I have an Acer Aspire 5720, ive had it for a year now and it is starting to slow down. I have lost the booklet to it and i need to do a master reset on it. Ive already backed everything up im just finding...


    This was taken straight out of the manual for your model, which can be found here.

    Acer eRecovery Management
    Acer eRecovery Management is a tool to quickly backup and restore the system.
    You can create and save a backup of the current system configuration to hard
    disk, CD or DVD. You can also backup/restore the factory default image, and
    reinstall applications and drivers.

    Acer eRecovery Management consists of the following functions:

    1 Create backup
    2 Burn backup disc
    3 Restore and recovery

    This chapter will guide you through each process.
    Note: This feature is only available on certain models. For systems
    that do not have a built-in optical disc burner, plug in an external
    optical disc burner before entering Acer eRecovery Management
    for optical disc-related tasks.

    When using Acer eRecovery Management, you may be prompted to enter the
    Empowering Technology password to proceed. The Empowering Technology
    password is set using the Empowering Technology toolbar or when first running
    Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management.

    Create backup

    You can easily create full and fast (incremental) backup images of your system
    configuration to hard disk from the main Acer eRecovery Management screen.
    Note: Fast (incremental) Backup is only available after a Full
    Backup is made.

    1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
    Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
    2 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select the type of backup you
    want to create using Full or Fast.
    3 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
    83
    English
    Burn backup disc
    Using the Burn Disc page of Acer eRecovery Management, you can burn the
    factory default image, a user backup image, the current system configuration,
    or an application backup image to CD or DVD.
    1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
    Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
    2 Switch to the Burn Disc page by selecting the Burn Disc button.
    3 Select the type of backup (factory default, user, current system,
    application) you would like to burn to disc. Choosing to burn a user backup
    will burn your most recently created backup image to disc.
    4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
    Note: Create a factory default image when you want to burn a
    bootable disc that contains your computer's entire operating
    system as it was delivered to you from the factory. If you wish to
    have a disc that will allow you to browse the contents and install
    selected drivers and applications, create an application backup
    image instead — this disc will not be bootable.

    Restore and recovery

    The restore and recovery features allow you to restore or recover the system
    from a factory default image, from a user created image, or from previously
    created CD and DVD backups. You can also reinstall applications and drivers for
    your Acer system.
    1 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
    Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
    2 Switch to the restore and recovery page by selecting the Restore button.
    3 Select the backup point you would like to restore from. You can also
    choose to recover the system from a factory default image, recover from a
    previously created CD/DVD or reinstall applications and drivers.
    4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
