Hello Sir / Madam,

Many Acer systems come with the ability to press ALT+F10 to kick off\015\012the Acer Recovery applications from a special hidden recovery\015\012partition. Sometimes this won’t work and there can be a number of\015\012reasons.
\015\0121. D2D Recovery is “Disabled” in the BIOS (Main menu).
\015\012FIX: Enabled it and try pressing ALT+F10 again as the computer boots.
\015\0122. The Acer hidden recovery partition (PQSERVICE) has been removed\015\012or damaged. If the disk drive is a replacement drive then you won’t\015\012have this partition.
\015\012FIX: Unless you have previously imaged the PQSERVICE\015\012partition it will not be possible to use D2D recovery. You will need to\015\012restore from the Acer Recovery CD/DVD.
\015\0123. You have converted the FAT32 partition on the hard drives into\015\012NTFS. Acer D2D recovery won’t be available if you perform this\015\012conversion. Ironic that NTFS is a more desirable disk format to use but\015\012Acer won’t support this in their systems!
\015\012FIX: Restore your system from the recovery CD/DVD media.
\015\0124. The special Acer Master Boot Record\015\012(MBR) has become corrupt or has been overwritten with an non Acer MBR.\015\012As long as the PQSERVICE partition is there or you can get your hands\015\012on a couple of Acer service files for your model, then you can remake\015\012the special Acer MBR. Let’s cover how this is done.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Disable D2D recovery in the BIOS. Can be found in the “Main” menu section. Save the BIOS settings and exit.
  2. \015\012
  3. Log into Windows with an “administrator” level account.
  4. \015\012
  5. Download ParTEDIT32.ZIP (registration required for download).
  6. \015\012
  7. Extract PTEDIT32.EXE from the zip archive and run it.
  8. \015\012
  9. Identify the PQSERVICE partition by its type or size. It is likely\015\012to be 12 or another custom value and is likely to be reasonably small\015\012in comparison to the other normal partitions - see the example below\015\012from a working factory default Acer. Click the Link below see the image full size. http://www.roundtripsolutions.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/
  10. \015\012
  11. 2007/10/AcerDiskRecoveryBroken_F031/hidden.jpg
    \015\012Change the type to “07′ (Installable File System NTFS, HPFS) and “Save Changes”.
  12. \015\012
  13. Reboot the computer and login with an “administrator” level account.
  14. \015\012
  15. You should then be able to open up a command prompt and navigate to the PQSERVICE drive.
  16. \015\012
  17. Enter the following command at the command prompt:
    \015\012mbrwrdos.exe install rtmbr.bin
    \015\012
    - You may have to search for these files and change into the relevant directory.
    \015\012Note: This step writes the Acer MBR, with mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin being the special service files.
  18. \015\012
  19. Close the command prompt window and reboot.
  20. \015\012
  21. Go into the BIOS again and enable D2D Recovery. Save the BIOS settings and exit.
  22. \015\012
  23. ALT+F10 should now start Acer Recovery as the computer starts.
  24. \015\012
  25. The Acer MBR ensures the PQSERVICE partition is hidden therefore\015\012there is no need to reset the partition type back to 07 - well there\015\012shouldn’t be if all has gone well. If you need to manually reset it\015\012then run PTEDIT32.EXE again, set the partition to 12, or whatever the\015\012original value was, and save the changes to complete the process.\015\012Reboot and it should now be hidden.
\015\012If Windows is unbootable, due to whatever issue, you can always use the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBCD4Win) along with a copy of PTEDIT32.EXE to achieve the same results. Likewise, use UBCD4Win\015\012along with PTEDIT32.EXE if the PQSERVICE partition is being changed\015\012back to a hidden one by the existing MBR. We’ll leave that as an\015\012exercise for those who need to do it! It has been pointed out in the\015\012comments that UBCD4Win already has an application that will do partition maintenance, so checkout TestDisc if you go down that road.
\015\012If this is a new drive or someone has completely wiped the drive,\015\012including the hidden partitions, it may be necessary to use\015\012partitioning software to recreate the partitions that the Acer Recovery\015\012system is expecting! You’ll also need to restore an image of the\015\012recovery partition from a previously made backup, so it is worth making\015\012that backup image straight away while the laptop is still new and\015\012shiny, and certainly well in advance of any problem.
\015\012A final word or two of caution: take great caution when playing around with partitions on an Acer system… you have been warned… and remember to make the backup media disks as soon as you fire the computer up for the first time!


Thanks
Good Luck

If you have a system running Vista or Vista x64 and/or Windows 7 or Windows 7 x64, Acer's LOVE to mess up the MBR (Master Boot Record) when you change the OS on the drive or if you install Linux and it goes badly, or you upgrade from Windows XP to Vista... heres how to fix it.\015\012\015\012Get a copy of HiRens boot cd and boot to it. if your PQSERVICE (Recovery) partition is messed up, follow the instructions above except the drive should be an NTFS filesystem, type: 0x27 (27h). you can use Acronis Disk Director on HiRens to fix this up, and it should be on Disk 1, Partition 1 (the very first partition on the disk), Non-Active status.\015\012\015\012after the partition is in the correct space and the flags are set correctly, you need to use the utility eXtended FDisk on HiRens, and place a bootloader on the disk...Disk 0, Partition 0 (the first partition, the recovery partition).\015\012this will now make your Alt+F10 work... go ahead, reboot your machine to the first Harddrive, it should boot the recovery, the same as though you were to have pressed Alt+F10, only you haven't. now we can get rid of that pesky boot chooser we added, for this we use the utility MBR Tool.\015\012Be very careful with this tool, it can cause some real damage if used incorrectly.\015\012Choose option 4, you want to play with the MBR, then choose option 9 to write/refresh the bootcode and it will ask you which disk, choose 0, and then choose Source type O for Original. It will follow with a status message elling you it has completed and to press any key. then 'ESC' your way back to the R:\\ prompt.\015\012Then reboot your system without the HiRens CD and do your Alt+F10 thing and everything should be back exactly as it was from the factory. \015\012NOTE: make your active system partition before you intend to recover your machine after correcting the D2D mode, make the partition the size you will need...Usually 75Gig for Vista and 100ish for Win7, that usually suffices with most users, even those that are software heavy, because when you recover to factory it doesn't create or modify partitions, it uses the first it finds beyond the recovery regardless of size or whats in it, and assumes it to be the 'C' drive;)
