Aspire V3 471g Windows 8 OEM Recovery

Hi.

 

can someone help me?

 

I just bought a acer aspire v3 471g windows 8 single language oem notebook. A friend of mine managed to screw up my new laptop. I was not able to create back factory default using a 16gb flash drive.

 

I was attempting to restore my laptop to its out-of-the-box factory settings. 

 

The problem is while attempting to create a backup first hand, the erecovery management wont allow me because it says the hard drive configuration was not set. Recovery Aborted/

 

I got frustrated.

 

I entered BIOS chose LEGACY BIOS and enable D2D Recovery. In order to use Alt+F10 feature because I dont have a backup image or flash drive. 

 

While trying to use alt+F10 "It says cannot find bootable device." Im aware I have a 15gb oem push button reset partition. Why it ss not working??????

 

It seems the recovery partition is locked... not configured or something.

 

 

I just want to restore it to its factory settings....... tnx

Tnx for the reply pal,

 

The problem is when I opened the image of the recovery partition I cant find aimdrs.dat or the mbrwrwin.exe and rtmbr.bin. Theres no password.

 

Sometime ago I used the windows 8 "Reset PC Settings" from boot but it says the windows partition cannot be accessed. It seems its locked or something.

 

I used R-Drive Image Software to create an image of the recovery partition.

 

A folder named RecoveryImage contains a 'OEM folder and install.wim file (12.9gb).e 

 

other information:

 

It seems I cant even reformat this unit. Cant do dual booting. The BIOS is in UEFI and the D2D Push Button can only b seen if its in Legacy Bios.

Re: Aspire V3 471g Windows 8 OEM Recovery

Hi guys,

 

I was able to solve my problem by external means. I went back to the Acer Store where I bought my notebook. The only solution was:

 

"Created a recovery flash drive taken from another unit with same model and version."

 

After that, I inserted the recovery flash drive and booted from it, then I was given the options for restore factory settings.

 

You must boots from the recovery flash drive.

 

That was it.

 

I hope that helps!
