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
