Windows 7: Acer Aspire 9800 / 9810 pqservice recovery

Acer Aspire 9800 / 9810 pqservice recovery

Hi, I gave the laptop in question but had no hard disk so I had to post one myself. So of course I don't have the recovery partition and the backup disks. I have to install Vista using the reported serial under the laptop but I can't use the acer arcade InstantOn because I don't found anywhere, even on the acer site.
Could someone help me to find it or up this program (or the hidden pqservice partition) on a filehosting or other?
thank you very much

1) You wont find the pqservice partition on any filehosting site or anywhere else online.

2) Are you sure, you dont have pqservice? Normally, acer computers launch recovery from that hidden partition if you tap ALT+F10 at boot. However, sometimes that may not work if D2D recovery is disabled in the bios. You can try enabling it, then retry. There are other options also such as using partedit32 to repair a damaged mbr, see this thread.

3) If your computer came with vista pre-installed, you can borrow a vista disk from a friend or download a clean copy off the web, then install the same edition that came preinstalled and activate using the key on the sticker at the back of the computer.

Alternatively, you can contact Acer and request for a set of recovery disks for your model, they'll probably ship it at a nominal cost.

Excuse if I write badly...I'm Italian.
Everything that you say it is exact but on my hd there is not the hidden partition because the original hd is broken and I have replaced him.
I have asked if someone has this pc, if he can save the hidden partition and to put it on the web on any filehosting (or in alternative to send me for email)
thanks for your answer
