My boss bought an Aspire 7600U with Windows 8..unfortunatly you cant add Windows 8 to a Domain...you have to have Windows 8 Pro or Ent. So I installed a new copy of Windows 8 Pro on the current Windows partition making sure to leave the other 3 recover partitions alone (Drive 0 Partition 1: Recovery, Drive 0 Partition 2: ESP, Drive 0 Partition 5: Push Button Reset).
Well now my boss wants the gesture software back on here and its not availible from the download section of Acer. I would like to try a factory restore and try to do and upgrade to pro instead of a full reinstall.
I have tried F8...ive tried Shift+f8...ive tried Right Shift +f8...ive tried Left Shift +f8...ive tried F10...ive tried f11...ive tried f12 and nothing will boot me into safe mode menu. I log into the machine and go into msconfig to get to the safe mode selection screen and it boots straight into safe mode not the selection menu to try and do a restore...ive searched online for restore documents...ive tried to go to the PointGrab website to redownload just the software....nothing works.
What do I need to do to restore this pc back to when it was pulled out of the box?
