    Recovery partition corrupted


    Dear all,

    I have a PQSERVICE (Acer eRecovery partition) is corrupted and I decided to return to Windows 7 (factory defalts) and set up a dual boot because a lot of drivers (expasialy printer drivers) is not supported in Windows 8 because it is a beta version and the retail haven't released yet. How to repair it?

    I entered my serial number and my SNID, but no response. I found a re-image recovery cd (for aspire x3950 only) purchase link in : Acer Aspire X3950 Restore and Acer Aspire X3950 Windows 7 Recovery Partition Re-Image DVDs.

    You won't need any serials or keys to create recovery disks. did you read the tutorial theog posted?
    That link for disk looks very much like a scam, you don't have to pay for a recovery disk, which only lets you boot to repairs options. You can use another PC having the same Windows version you have to make your recovery disk.
