Acer Aspire One D257 MBR

[ Edited ]


I have an Acer Aspire One D257 netbook and few months ago I installed Linux on it. I installed it on new partition so I still have recovery partition. But now I want back to Windows and I can't install it from recovery partition because my Linux installation had overwritten original Acer MBR. ALT+F10 is not working but I managed to boot from recovery partition using Arch LiveCD. But after recovery I have an installation error and can't run Windows anyway. I checked my recovery partition and I don't have RTMBR.BIN and MBRWIN.EXE files.

So my question is: Is somebody have that two files or backup of MBR from AO D257? I tried looking on google but I found only RTMBR.BIN for normal Acer notebook.

Thanks in advance for any help and sorry for my poor English Smiley Happy
