I was going to reset to Factory Settings through ARM and got the message roughly translated: "Configuration of the harddrive isn`t set to factory standards. Recovery aborted" Now this is the THIRD Acer computer I`ve had, and this is the first time I`ve gotten this error. I checked the recovery partition through partition magic, and the recovery partition is intact. The only thing I`ve done with the computer is to partition the main partition into two parts and relabled them to C:\ and D:\ By the way, the operating system is Windows 8 preinstalled. I suspect the problem is that I might have used a label that the Recovery partition was assigned originally had when I split the main partition. I seem to remember being annoyed over the main partition not being labeled C:\ Please help, I really need to have my computer up and running by the 15th of december. What do I need to do or check? I`ve already reset the bios to factory standards. And I don`t have any recovery discs, as I`ve always preferred a complete reset. Sincerely, Aurv
I really appreciate the answer. I've wondered about doing that. The problem is that when creating a new partition you often get small leftovers. I currently have two such small undesignated an unlabeled leftovers. One is 700kb, the other is 1mb if I remember it correctly. Any suggestion which ones to add to the merge?
Figured the partition merging would be my last option since I get a warning message that HD error might lead to the new merged partition not booting afterwards.
I was unable to make recovery disks.. I got the same Acer Recovery error when trying that. Alt+F10 doesn't work either.
