SOURCE: Lost Acer D2D Recovery Partition

If you still have the original key, you should be able to use an original CD of Windows XP Home to wipe the drive and re-install the operating system.
When starting remember to have the software repartition the drive to a single partition, to salvage the space and to remove all remnants of the old operating systems.

Alt f10 doesnt work on my acer 5630 how can i use the restore to manufacture settings?


Hello,

You can use the recevery CD's or DVD's you got when you brought the laptop OR the ones you made yourself on prompt from the Acer Software when you turned on the laptop for the very first time.

Sometimes, the recovery partition (which is hidden on the hard drive from normal use), may become corrupt or is deleted by format. In such cases only recovery from the Acer recovery DVD's or CD's is the solution.

I just did a recovery and my acer 4520 has lost


You can install a free recovery software like pcinspector or a paid software like System Mechanis Search and Recover. However it can not be guaranteed whether all your data can be retrieved successfully.

MY COMPUTER CRASHED GOT MOST OF THE DATA BACK BUT NEED THE START UP DISK


as far as I know Acer does not supply start up cd's but a recovery copy the entire operating system along with original programs are on your hard drive in a hidden partition. To recover the original factory install...
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
click Next.
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
click Next.
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
to re-install.
Last resort get out your manual or download the manual from Acer.

I would like to reformat my Acer 6930 notebook, but I don't have the actual windows vista CD. I brought the notebook from Tiger Direct and it never came with any CD's. What should I do?


There is a recovery partition on the drive which has the windows installation files on it.. this partition is hidden so dont bother looking for it.. go into the windows control panel and select the recovery icon. Otherwise, go to the acer website and search the support area for the correct method of initialising the re-install routines.. DO NOT reformat the drive as you may well delete the recovery information which is an expensive mistake.. The hidden partition may show up in drive manager which is accessed through administrative tools but if you are not sure what to do, stay out of there and consult someone who knows what they are doing..

Acer e-recovery problem


The e-recovery software is used to access the 10GB hidden partition on the original drive, for recovery. Therefore a new drive doesn't have the 10GB Backup files for the system. Since the hidden drive is not there, the software can't access the hidden partition, therefore, the software will not install because there is no need for it.

If you need more info, please e-mail me,

Thanks, Have a nice day!
