Hi lytutrong87,

 

If you can find a Windows 8 (Not windows 8 pro) 64bit OEM iso/disk, You can Re-install windows and then Reset again your PC from windows 8 to its factory state. I tried that and succeed! 

 

Note: Any Consumer Versions/ Retail versions of Windows 8 can't be installed on your PC as they do not recognize Your Windows Activation key Automatically. Only OEM version of windows can do that.

 

There's no way to download Acer Recovery management tool. You can buy a Recovery disk from acer for $20. ds!

 

Regards!
