    Hi guys, I did this mistake, formatted my HD and lost de PQSERVICE partition, but I can recovery ussing a program offers by ACER
    I create a step-by-step how-to-do for anyone can resolve this problem.

    1) Go to http://www.acerpanam.com/
    2) Choice your country
    3) In Drivers & Downloads clic in more...
    4) Select your product (in my case was Aspire 5000)
    5) In the end of list have a file name "Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image"
    6) Download this file, burn a CD-ROM with it.
    7) Put in CD-ROM drive on Acer PC and press F2, and change to star using CD-ROM.
    8) Only use Next-Next-Next.... and this program wil create the PQSERVICE partition
    9) Next put yours recovers factory CD/DVD and return to the zero mark.

    Ps: I´m brasilian and my english is very bad, so sorry. But I hope that this can help someone.

    Yeah, sure would like to know if it's that easy. Lots of folks would benefit from this if it works.

    Just checked; the support site list for my Acer 5920 includes the cryptically termed "Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image".

    cleitongt, how did you come across this?

    I'm not sure I understand.

    This only works if you you already have a factory recovery CD/DVD? If you're computer doesn't come with one, does it work with a burned DVD you made from erecovery?

    Thanks.

    Sou brasileiro e não entendo nada de inglês, gostaria que vc pudesse me passar as orientações de como usar esse Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image, esse ele só é usado para fazer a partição de recovery do zero tendo o cd de fábrica, o que não é o meu caso, ou pode se gravar o cd tendo a partição no note para guardar em caso de problemas.
    Desde já agradeço a atenção dispensada!

    i could be way off base here,,, but my understanding of the "Post Acer Disk Formatter CD ISO Image" is that it will re-establish the factory formatting structure,,,

    but i can't see such a small image file holding all the gigs of data that the PQSERVICE partition holds,, how can one CD hold the data that takes 3 DVDs to back up??

    just my stab at common sense and logic,

    I successfully rebuilt pqservice partition and now I can recover my system using ALT+F10.
    We can rebuild hidden partition from original dvds or we can put into pqservice system made by us with all drivers, programms etc. I can write a tutorial how to rebuild pqservice partition if you like.

    This forum its full of people with energy , who wish to learn the ACER secrets .

    What they do are to learn by their own failures , realizing in the end .. that rebuilding the PQSERVICE from DVDs its not possible .

    Still its interesting to see those people trying .

    So be my guest, and try ones more .
