    I can see the PQSERVICE partition but no long get the F10 option to recovery. How do I go about correcting the damaged MBR to allow this factory recovery to be re-enabled. This PC has no CD/DVD roms. Short of getting the ACER iso, is there a way to do this fast and easy?
    Aspire 7540-1284
    P.S. in the BIOS the D2D *IS* enabled, but no longer gives the F10 or ALT-F10 recovery option. Customer used a 3rd party utility to re-size the drive and changed the MBR. I could recover this from a Windows 7 DVD but he would like the factory settings *AS NEW*.
    Bigozone got close here but there was never a reply as to this being corrected.

    I tired this somewhat but does not seem to work for me.

    Well I was about to get the partition to reload windows but errors showed on the next boot.
    Seems this did not repair the MBR but was very close.. I need the right tool to correct this. If that person still has it , would be very useful.
