Answers :

Today's machines require we make our own or order them. Let's see if\015\012Acer has some boot recovery method but first, I'm going to write as if\015\012there is no issue about losing files on the machine.

Try the ALT+F10 key

First of all you must be aware that some of the operations to come\015\012can cause irreversible change on your hard disk, I recommend to you and\015\012I will never make it enough make a backup of your system before\015\012launching you in any hazardous operation.

Any damage and/or\015\012modification done on your system will be under your whole\015\012responsibility. The following procedures were done on a Acer Aspire\015\0125102wlmi and some also functioned on a Dell Inspiron 9400/1705.

As\015\012you know, the Acer computers and those of other manufacturers are now\015\012delivered with a system of restoration installed in a hidden partition\015\012of your hard disk. This system launches out while pressing keys ALT+F10\015\012simultaneously. And sometimes for various reasons this system ceases\015\012functioning.

The first cause often comes owing to the fact that function D2D \011Recovery is disable in the bios (menu principal).

The \011solution : enable the function and try to press keys ALT+F10 \011during the starting of the computer.

The\015\012second cause : in this case hidden partition PQSERVICE was erased or\015\012damaged, or you replaced the disc and in this case it is not present.

The \011solution\015\012: If you did not previously make a backup of your system by making an\015\012image disc. It will not be possible to use the D2D recovery. Your only\015\012hope will be to have in your possession Acer Recovery CD/DVD.

And\015\012the third causes : the Acer Master Boot Record (MBR)was damaged or\015\012replaced by non-Acer MBR. As long as partition PQSERVICE is present or\015\012that you can put the hand on the necessary Acer files you can reinstall\015\012the MBR of Acer.

The \011solution :
First \011method : on a functional Windows system:
1 \011disable the D2D recovery option of the bios.
2 \011open a Windows session with an account administrator.
3 \011Download, unzip and launch partedit32(registration required for \011download).
4\015\012Identify the Pqservice partition by its size (at the bottom of the\015\012partedit window there is a partition information box) it is a small\015\012sized partition approximately 2 to 6 Go.Once made change the type of\015\012your partition into 0C and save. Restart and open a session with an\015\012administrator account, you should be able to navigate to the PQservice\015\012partition. Seek these two files mbrwrdos.exe and rtmbr.bin once\015\012localised open a command prompt and launch this command mbrwrdos.exe\015\012install rtmbr.bin, this will install the Acer MBR. Close the command\015\012prompt window restart again Windows go into the bios and reactivate the\015\012D2D recovery. Now ALT+F10 should launch Acer recovery at the starting\015\012of the computer.

Second \011method : On a nonfunctional Windows system.
For \011that you must use a Linux distribution (for me Mandriva provided all \011the tools necessary).

1\015\012Boot on the Mandriva install CD/DVD the boot menu will give you the\015\012possibility to repair or to restore the Windows boot loader.

2 If\015\012that is not enough launch an installation of linux(this will be an\015\012occasion to test this terrible OS) and choose LILO as boot loader(a\015\012boot menu that allow you to choose between several operating systems)\015\012once finished the installation. Restart your computer in the boot\015\012loader menu system you will have at least 2 Windows options the first\015\012generally point to PQservice choose it and you will boot directly into\015\012acer D2D recovery.

The last solution is the simplest one, just\015\012note that during the Linux installation you will have to resize your\015\012Windows partition to create a place for a new Linux partition it is the\015\012most perilous part because irreversible, therefore take your\015\012precautions at this time.
