Have you verified the disk as good? Did you do a cold-start on the computer? You didn't give your Make, Model of computer, OS???

Use F key to load Boot Menu or BIOS load from DVD/CD rmo drive.

I have acer spire 5745(CPU intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 6GB OS:Win 7 Home basic) which is 1.5 year old. Yesterday i started acer eRecovery then i can not create operating system recovery disk, but


Unfortunately for you, you didn't follow the Acer instructions. The recovery disc must be created before you start using the computer or making modifications.

There is a remote possibility that if you go into control panel and click on 'restore' and go back to the earliest date, you can then run the recovery disc. Remember that this only a remote possibility and I make no promises.

I have an asus u52f or also known as the u53f with the windows 7 version i caught a virus n did not have the recovery disc after i ordered from asus n loaded the disc once i cam to the utilities n drivers...


Why didn't you just get rid of the virus which is the easy solution? Or you could have done a System Restore to a restore point (date and time) before you caught the virus.

Unfortunately most times those Recovery Discs don't work. The best Recovery Disk that works is the one the manufacturer puts on your hard drive.

Have you checked your hard drive to see if there is a Recovery Partition on it?

See if you can run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

How to reinstall the Operating system on your computer

Select models of Acer laptops, with Microsoft Windows, have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.
Note: During the process, all data stored on your computer will be overwritten. This means all your files, such as email and photos, will be erased. Therefore, we recommend making a backup of all personal data before starting the recovery process.
To start the system recovery:
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
3.If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
4.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
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. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form..
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
1.Restart the computer.
2.When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
3.Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
4.Close the CD-ROM tray.
5.Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
6.The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
7.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 of the Recovery CDs.

8.After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: if your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.

You have formatted the hard drive (containing Boot Manager) using recovery disk 1.
That's why the error message.

Just insert disk 1 again.
Shut down the computer (press & hold the power button for a minute).
Restart.

Follow the instructions that come up.

If it doesn't help, reseat the hard drive. (open the back cover, take out hard drive, reconnect it)
Also you may go to BIOS (tap F1 while booting) and set the cd-drive as the first boot device.

Hope it helps.

I can not make my recovery disc.


Hi there.
I'm sorry to tell you that when you reformatted the drive you deleted the recovery partition and all the recovery information on it, this is why the recovery disk creator cannot be launched and is giving you an error.
Thankfully for you, you created a recovery disk before you wiped the drive so this is your only way of restoring the system so make a back-up copy of the recovery disk you made and keep it safe as the problem cannot be solved because you deleted the recovery partition.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

CD Drive on Travelmate 2500 not working


Dear Grant625,

yes you can do this way. only one thing you need to make sure and double check boot option in BIOS that; In booting sequence USB Drive should be the first one to boot as this way laptop will boot from there and you can install recovery discs. I beielve you have external USB CD Drive!

I am not sure exactly which key to press on your Laptop but when your computer boots up you need to press quickly "DEL" or "F2" or something like this to go in BIOS options before it goes to windows loading screen. you can see which key to press when computer boots up and these information comes on the screen somewhere before windows loading screen.

let me know if any problem.

Thanks.

Regards,

AJoshi

Unfortunately, a recovery disc is made only for a each notebook. You can't use the recovery disc of any  another laptop.
My suggestion is purchase a retail version of OS.
If on a tight budget, you may go for linux OS that it's free and downlodable (just google it) but I'm not sure if drivers are available for the devices built within your laptop.
Or...
You can call your manufacturer and order a recovery disc.
