Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

It sounds as if your recovery partition is missing. Have you used any programs to format discs?

You have full factory warranty with tech support for one year, so now is the time to shake out your Acer to get it running correctly or replaced, so that you know by one year's time you have what you need.

In this case, if Factory Recovery will not run you want them to assist you in running full Factory Recovery to see if that restores the ability to create Recovery Disks, and if not they should send them to you. Acer will normally send them free within 90 days, however they should make an extension if they will not generate.

Let us know how they respond so others can consider if they want to buy Acer.
