Install W7 w/ Restore Discs on Acer Aspire (no optical drive)

Did you make your ACER USB Recovery disk?

Can you post your specs.

Are these disks which came with the same computer you wish to reinstall? Work with Theog as he apparently has a method to get Acer Recov disks onto USB.

Or... Do you have access to a Windows 7 installer for your version to clean reinstall with the Product Key on the COA sticker? It's easier to extract the ISO and write it to flash stick if so.
