    either try this - acer sent a new e-recovery thumb drive - which seems to have failed..

    Or download a create windows 8.1 setup media (link in sig below) and try that..

    so I finally got a little bit further but now I still cant get into windows 8 I used acer's recovery thumb drive to reset my ao725 to factory settings and when I press alt+f10 edit boot options come up and says: path: \windows\system32\winload.efi
    [ /noexecute=optin /minit /novga rdimageoffset=8192 rdimagelength=3161088 rdp ath=multi(0)disk(0)partition(6)\sources\boot.wim
    when i press enter the acer screen comes up then the recovery management screen comes up says please wait a moment then says restore failed-can not find image path:m:\d2d\images\*.swm
    Is there something I should change? if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated, as i have been working on trying to fix this computer since mid december and it is now march. I dont know what to do and the acer company will not help me at all since i no longer have a warranty. i can not afford to pay for their support either. thank you to anyone willing to help!!!!!
