Re: how do I access the recovery partition

Good day


  • Plug in the AC adapter and battery.
  • Turn the system on
  • Immediately, press ALT on the keyboard and start tapping F10. Continue holding ALT and tapping F10 as the unit boots up.
  • A screen stating "Starting Acer Erecovery" should appear. (Release ALT and stop tapping F10 at this point)
  • There will be 3 options: 1. Restore system to factory default 2. Restore system from user backup 4. Exit
  •  Select option 1 or option 2
