    I've lost my recovery disks and I don't have the recovery partition on my hdd anymore so I have nothing.

    I was wondering if someone could do me a favour and copy their recovery disk, and send me the disk in the post.

    Obviously I'll pay for the postage and a bit extra to cover your time, disk costs etc.

    Anyone able to help?

    cheers

    They do not come with a recovery disc as I have one in bits here that was smashed. The recovery partition is all they have. Though sometimes you get the windows anytime upgrade disc. But using that it will not activate automatically online with your coa and will have to phone to do it.

    The drivers and software needed are all available on Acers website for re installing but you will need the vista disc obviously.

    i assume you have a valid COA so download a vista img file, make sure it matches ie OEM or RETAIL and burn using something like imgburn and use that.

    Sorry to jump on thread, but could someone one tell me the answer to this:

    I recently bought a PB Easynote BG45 it came with pre-installed Vista basic, I have since removed this and loaded ubuntu. I made recovery discs for windows but am not sure about a COA and also if I sold my hardrive after re-installing vista on it would it work on another laptop? [Looking at upgrading harddrive, not sure whether best to sell old one with ubuntu, vista or nothing on it]

    They have a recovery partition, and if you download acer erecovery, it copies the recovery partition to a disk to keep as a recovery disk.
    I was just wondering if someone had this disk, as I've lost mine and the recovery partition, and it would be good to have it, with all th drivers n preinstalled stuff, just for reference.

    I have the coa and I know i can just install vista on its own easily enough, just wondered if someone had made a recovery disk for this laptop

    Sorry not got one. I never do it as I always wipe a new laptop the day I get it along with the recovery partition and do a clean install without the rubbish acer put on which slows em down.

    Hope you find what you want.
