    How to recover windows 8 on an acer aspire e1-571


    i wanted to install w7 so i accidentally formatted some drives. then noticed i cant install w7 because of the gtp partition. as you can see in the pic partition 1 the recovery one looks like it wasn't formatted( i cant remember as i formatted the partitions 3 months ago) so is there any way i can use that recovery partition to restore windows 8

    have tried the alt+F10 menu. none of the following ways in the menu let me restore or reset the laptop. i tried all of the options in the picture none worked

    so i am left with an laptop with no os how can i restore the pre installed w8 or install w7 (i have a w7 cd)

    thanks the laptop is an aspire e1-571

    If Windows refresh/reset feature doesn't work, then you need to clean install Windows 8/8.1, but you need Windows 8/8.1 installation DVD/USB.

    How to clean install Windows 8.1 if you have OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8 product key?

    Or install Windows 7. Note that you must disable Secure Boot in UEFI firmware (BIOS).

    Windows 7/8 setup: Installing using the MBR or GPT partition style.

    what os would you recommend. windows 8.1 seemed a bit slow hence the reason i wanted to charge it, how do you think w7 would be. also how do i know if i had Windows 8 Single Language version or not

    For Windows 8

    Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8 (Windows 8 only)




    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    Windows 8 - Create a Factory Default Backup - Acer Recovery Management - YouTube
    Windows 8 - Create a Drivers and Applications Backup - Acer Recovery Management - YouTube
    Windows 8 - Restore Windows With a USB Recovery Drive - YouTube
    or
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.
    You can Order Acer recovery disks from here:
