Recovery Partition

I have a brand new Acer Iconia W7.  I have been unable to locate any information on how to boot into the recovery partition that is on the harddrive.  Yes, I have the recovery disks but should I choose not to use them as it would require an external RW drive, it would be most helpfull to know how to do it.  I know how to get into the bios for setting up the boot order, but that doesn't provide the information that I need.  Also, how would one get into "safe mode"?
