Hi
I want to completly restore my laptop to the factory settings, but it doesnt seem to work. I have followed the guides from Acer, made sure my D2D Recovery is enabled, and tried pressing alt + F10. When i do, it only starts a Black screen, where it say's "Edit Windows boot options for: Windows 7" and so on. If i press escape i get to Windows boot manager, but that shouldnt be right according to the guides. What am i doing wrong?

yes i found a solution to it.
1.
you have to download hirens boot CD, scroll down the page till you see the green box that says download as .zip (http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip) copy and paste into browser if clicking doesn't work.
2.
burn the iso image to a usb drive. using iso2usb (http://www.softsea.com/download.php?id=834266351) copy and paste into browser if clicking doesn't work.
3.
go into your bios settings by pressing F2.
4.
change the boot priority order so that the usb drive will boot up first.
5.
exit saving changes.
6.
select the first option "Boot From Hard Drive (windows Vista/7/2008 or XP)
7.
use arrow keys to highlight the choice you want, press enter.
8.
this will open up Acer recovery tool, and allow you to restore your computer to factory settings.
9.
please let me know if this helps!
