I am trying to restore an Aspire One (running Windows XP) back to the factory default settings. Everything I can find refers to running the eRecovery Management Program, but it is not located on my hard disk. Alt + F10 does nothing, so I booted up using a CD with sbminst.iso so I could actually look at the partitions, and there was no recovery partition. I have tried to contact Acer, but the netbook is out of warranty, so I can't get through to Acer technical support.
1) Is there a way to restore the system to factory default without the eRecovery program?
2) Where can I get hold of the eRecovery Manangement program (the Acer store says there is no media for my netbook)?
3) How can I get hold of someone at Acer who can help?
I appreciate any advice on this. Thanks!
