    Can not repair windows 8?


    Hi,
    I have tried to install windows 7 on my new Acer laptop running windows 8 to get dual operating systems.
    I have used Easyus program to shrink partition C to get unallocated space and i have created partition W for windows 7.I was not able to install windows 7 and now, when I start my laptop I get a message that some files are missing or corrupted,but after pressing enter I am able to boot to my windows 8 and use it.When I close the lit ,my laptop does not wake up and I am not able to use it anymore( black screen).I would have to remove battery and put it back in order to start the laptop again.
    I have tried to use back up cd,but is says that it can not find image.I have tried to use Acer recovery managment but it says that hardrives are not positioned as default.
    I had used Easyus again to format drive W and I have merged drive C and W ,but I am still getting the same error.
    Can Anybody tell me how to fix this?
    Can I download windows 8 from microsoft and use my serial number to reinstall it?

    I have tried refresh and reset and after I have inserted a recovery cd I got a message that media inserted is not valid.I have also tried a System Image Recovery(Windows can not find a system image on my computer).
    Any more suggestions?

    Thanks.
