I need help with Restoring my Aspire One AO-257. When I turned my computer on the following screen came up: No bootable device. I bought the discs from Acer to restore my Note book. The system disk showed: Windowa copyng files. After a while a green screen showed up with the heading "Acer eRecovery Managementy. Then showed the choice of language. After choosing the language shows a screen with four choices: 1. Restore OS to Factory defaults. 2. Restore OSand retain user data. 3. Completly restore computer to factory defaults and 4. Exit. I chose numbrer 3. Completely restore computer to factory defaults. After that a screen with heading Creating Hars disk partitions. I did not do anhything except to press the Next button. The came another screen with heading Notice. after that came other screen wit heading Restore destination with following lines: Hard Drive name: ATA device
Partition label: System
Partition siza: 41924 GB
Afte pressing Next button, this screen shows: The action will erase all existing data on Partition lsbel System. Press OK to continue or press Cancel to abort. I pressed OKthen shows a screen with heading: Copying files from disc, please wait for files to load. At this time the computer ejects the Syste disk and ask for Disk 1. I inserted Recovery disk 1 and pressed ok. After a while the disk is ejected and the followin screen shows up "Restore failed-Error Code=0x3(The system cannot find the path specified) Any body knows what to do. Did I get the wrong diks from ACER. I hope that somebody can help me.
Have you received an answer from anyone. I have the same issue, and believe it probably has to do with the Windows automatic update that occured last Thursday. I'm about to chuck the Acer out the window.
I have an acer ao722 I went in the bois but my hdd keeps dispearing it was there I tryed a restore and got Restore failed error code=0x3(the system can not find the path specified) went back in and it was gone. Took it out & put it back in in case it was loose. Tryed a couple times but it keeps disapearing. Is there something else I can try?
I do have a suggestion but none of you are going to like it. Buy an OEM or BRANDED W7 disc, format
the drive, when it boots change over to CD as the primary drive, and let Windows 7 install the files and start completely fresh. IF you still have the W7 COA pasted on the unit, you can load an ISO of W7, probably
basic, and losd the files, THEN when it asks for your COA, eneter it, OR continue on and activate
