And sorry one more question. Kindly help … Thanx a ton! Warning: This process will erase all your data. How long ago did you upgrade from Win 8 to Win 10? I have an Acer aspire 4520 This the issue. You should have three or more options available. It really is that simple! Then I tried the alt+f10, the computer made a loud beeping sound. I do not care about the data on it, just want it running again.
I accepted the warning of erasing my C: contents. I have Acer Aspire 5535 Vista Home Premium. Oh and I did move onto the sec set of 3 instructions to reset the password incase I could do that without needing the first set of 5 instructions and I couldnt even find the aimdrs. During the launch, Acer eRecovery Management will ask you to create a password for saving files. Select your version of Windows. Delete all the contents from it.
I also have noticed 8 out of 10 people selling this particular laptop has taken out there hard drive to insure no personal information gets in the wrong hands. Can someone suggest any way that I can fix it? Restore the system from backup user restores the system from the image of the user on the second partition on the hard disk. If the recovery gone crazy every time you do it, I would think that the recovery partition itself is already corrupted, not too sure though. For the recovery disc, probably you can look for the assistance from local Acer dealer. I suspect I need to load drivers but no idea what I need.
Burn the iso to the usb. Windows Vista as I recalled, will still take a considerable amount of time to complete the installation, unlike Windows 7. It preserves the data even if you lose the ability to access your regular Windows partition. I have a bootable win7dvd the same operating system it comes with. Any ideas as in what that means and what my other options maybe to either restoring my laptop back to factory or recovering my password? If not, make one for future use if currently the system is still working. Then, press F10 to Save and Exit. You will need the product key for your previous windows version, Windows 8.
You can use this to create a backup disc to install specific drivers and applications without wiping out the entire operating system. Thank you for your time and i pray that u will agree to help me. The hard disk or the Acer recovery partition required to restore the computer to default settings might be corrupted. What can I do to fix this computer??? Now, my concern is, when i am not able to boot the laptop at all, how do i take my backup! Rgds, Taylor Hi June, Not too sure if it can help but if you can boot into the Windows, you can use the disk management tool to reassign the drive letter. Windows back up should be able to do this if not you said a portable drive is is just a flash or a full hard drive.
Acer AcerPower F2 Recovery Disk Set includes the Windows Operating System as well as the most recent drivers and applications for your computer. Your Windows 8 system must have the updates released in May, 2013 by Microsoft installed. Can you give me the proper address to the Acer website? Note: This erases all your data on the system. Restore system to factory default settings allows you to restore the computer to its original state. You can probably initiate the recovery using it. I have an exact same netbook which i gave to my cousin a month ago. How It Works Acer's eRecovery system works from a hidden partition on your hard drive, separate from your regular Windows operating system partition.
Rgds, Taylor In step 3 of that link you offered I dont have a partition thats only about 10 gb with no name. Disk Drill is also packed with free disk management tools like duplicate file finder, disk cleanup and space visualization, bootable data recovery drive, byte-to-byte backups, disk health monitoring and a lot more! If you used hda1 at step 1, replace sda1 with hda1. Hi, This is a new problem for me. Acer eRecovery Management is stuck The Acer eRecovery Management can be stuck at various steps during either the process of creating the set of recovery disks or through the process of restoring the computer settings. I just wanted to say a big thank you for suggesting tapping F10 with the Alt key depressed.
Is there any other place to get them? Practically there is no difference between the Original Windows Vista and the new one, except the drivers and utilities from Acer are fully installed. Probably try calling the seller or Acer service centre for help? Hi Khalid, I would like to think that the things that you have deleted are actually from Windows itself, not on the booting level, so I would assume that the eRecovery system via Alt+F10 will still be usable. I read that I need to find drivers for the disk controllers as there is no such thing as a driver for the disk itself. I expect that would have cost me at least £100. The main page of the hidden partition provides several options to restore the system. Strange, because your Windows boot drive should be the C: unless you customize the drive letter yourself. It fails every time at 32% from the discs so I tried using the Partition method and it got stuck at 32% also.
Initiating the Restore Start the restore process by booting your computer from the eRecovery partition. Using this you can save all your files from your hard disk to external drive. Note: Acer eRecovery System will only restore the computer to the original state if the computer has no hardware issue. It would be best if you can contact the seller of that machine to see if they usually set a generic password for their machine sold, I have seen some seller doing this. Otherwise I am sorry but you probably have to contact Acer for this issue.
The utility then restores the system to its original state. So i decided to restore to factory settings. Anyway, if you have valuable data in your computer, I would suggest you to burn a linux redist such as Ubuntu to do a live boot, then copy out all the important data before you try to do the system recovery. When this option is selected, the computer restarts from the optical disc. I had removed all these not sure why t came up but i tried to enter previous ones. When prompted, confirm the system restore.
