When you open the Acer eRecovery Management there are two options for you:
-Create Default Factory Disk
& Apps Disk
You should do the 2 options at first and it takes about 4 Dvd's.
In Bios settings you've have to enable the key F12 for the recovery disk to work (in case the Acer eRecovery Management won't work) F12 Key IS UNACTIVATED BY DEFAULT. Again in
Acer eRecovery Management when you click "restore tab"
There's 3 options offered to you
-Restore to factory (recommended)
-Restore keeping you're your files (make a backup of your files)
-Restore drivers & Apps
You should use the first option here.
If this doesn't works, refer to F12 key to enable repair with your new CDs.
(You can find in the "Acer Generic User Guide" step by step, how to use F12 on boot)
