    should i copy the install.wim from recovery partition and replace it in windows 8.1 install and install that? or will errrors occur? please reply!

    Try to replace install.wim

     

    you overwrote Acer standard partitions, installing another windows version.

    can replace official windows 8.1 pro 32 bit install.wim with acer installer or do i HAVE to replace it in a windows 8.1 pro 64 bit version?

    in my opinion you have 2 solutions:

     

    1) recover the Acer recovery and re-install the Acer version of windows 8.1

    2) wipe completly your HDD and re-install your version of windows

     

    if you have more than 4GB ram, you can install the x64 version for better memory management.

    check this about install.wim:

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/keithmayer/archive/2013/11/06/windows-8-1-unable-to-quot-copy-recovery-partition-quot-when-building-recovery-drive.aspx

     

    then resize the Acer partition and install your w8 PRO.

     

    please don't write with bigger font, i'm not blind not even dumb. Smiley Happy
