I have a very sticky situation at hand. I have the Acer Aspire V3-731 and I (foolishly) erased the entire hard drive (including the hidden partitions for backup/recovery, of course) to install Ubuntu. I originally had Windows 8 and I want it back. I bought the eRecovery CDs for my laptop and I tried to use them. I booted first in UEFI mode and got the message "Please boot this recovery disc using legacy bios"
Simple right? Not exactly.
I then switched to legacy bios and booted the disc again. It loads for about 3 minutes and I get a new message.
"Recovery fail: This recovery software can only be used in UEFI mode. Press OK and the system will reboot immediately."
Can anyone help me fix this?
Thanks in advance,
