    commands for recovery usb (X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe)


    I am in desperate need of help, I have an acer ao-725 which was stuck in a repair loop so I purchased the e-recovery thumb/usb. It went through most of the recovery then froze and shutdown. Now it goes through part of the recovery and ends up at X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe, is there a command that I should be putting in? At this point I dont know if anything is even on the computer anymore it says no bootable device. I have been trying to figure this out for almost 2 months and have gotten no where. I tried to contact acer and they are not helpful at all, they basically told me to join the acer community and figure it out from there since my warranty expired the month before it stopped working. I found a list of commands and tried most od them out but it says that they are invalid. I dont know alot about computer repair so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all helpers in advance!!

    using the erecovery get back to the command prompt

    type> diskpart

    type> select disk 0 (that is a zero)

    type> list partition

    how may partitions do you have?

    KYHI--Thank you so much for your response! I got home from a crazy day of unfriendly grocery shoppers to find your response and was so pleased, however I went to try your suggestion and now the computer wont turn on it just beeps some sort of code. If I can get it started again then I will try your suggestion and let you know whats going on. Thank you again!!
