Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
My bet is that the recovery software is looking for your "primary master" drive at position 0
and thats not where it is. (saw this on an emachines system) If you are feeling ambitous you might try popping out your hard drive and checking what the jumper settings are (this is the set of 6 pins next to where it connects to the mother board or ide cable) usually you can find what the different settings for your particular drive are on the label. typically removing the jumper sets it to master or to cable select, I am thinking that if you can set the jumper to tell the system that the disk is in the master position it should show up at position 0. hope this helps

Hi, it seems that the recovery partition is not working.You may have to get the Recovery CD's to do the Factory Recovery.If you have not created the Recovery CD's from the Recovery manager software, you can purchase it from the Acer website.
The Alternate method for starting the Recovery on startup is using the combination of ALT+F10 ( some models its ALTgr ) on startup.Press and Hold down the ALT( Left jand of space ) and at the same time keep on tapping the F10 key till you get the message " Windows is loading files".Just follow the On screen Instructions to start the Recovery.

SOURCE: I would like to restore
if you converted the drive to a dynamic drive then you will have issues altering it. if you cannot get the operating system to load so that you can re configure the drive so that it is not dynamic then you will have to do a clean install of the operating system and completely reformat the drive.
