Wiped my partitions now I can't use my acer code

i was installing linux and ended up wiping all of the partitions, including windows. I figured I could just reinstall windows using the code on the sticker on the side of the machine but when I tried windows message said something to the effect of this was an acer oem version and I had to use the acer recovery partition.
I havent been able to find anything about how I can recover the recovery partition...
thanks for any help

Hi Jw,
Here you go W7 SP1 pro x64, burrn it to a disc, try a repair install first Might be able to recover your data, otherwise clean install im afraid.

Thanks for providing that file.
Would I be able to put it on a usb stick and boot from the stick?
I haven't burned a CD in a while. Not sure I have any blanks.
Thanks

The code you have should work for both 32/64
If not then its NOT Pro
