Hello,
Acer 3680 vista home basic. No eRecovery media available from Acer. PQSERVICE intact, won't burn from Windows. How to install new harddrive w/factory image?

Thanks WR2 and daship for your quick response.

ACER 3680 eRecovery console was disabled and wouldn't burn recovery disk eventhough PQSERVICE partion was intact. Should have done this when I bought the computer. (Who knew that ACER would stop selling back up media?)

Using Seagate DiscWizard (free, but only works if at least one drive is Seagate/maxtor) cloned spare drive with all partitions. Once installed, used alt-F10 on boot up to restore original factory image on clone.

Now eRecovery console was able to burn back up media. A bit of work.
