Acer :: Recovery CD (ISO File Called STCDBOOT)


I found something once on one of my recovery CD'S. It is an ISO file called STCDBOOT. I burned the ISO image and it made some wierd boot disk. Has anone else tried this? I was wondering if this could rebuild the PQSERVICE? This ISO is on the first disk called System.

Acer Extensa 4420 :: Cannot Recover System - ERecovery Will No Longer Run community.acer.com

I purchased the factory "Recovery" CDs. The problem is they will not recover the system. Also on a 2nd HD I find that the Acer program eRecovery will no longer run. This appears that Acer sels computers and doesn't provide the software needed to do basic recovery actions we could do under W-95 Acer will also sell you a "Recovery" CD sets that do not actually allow you to recover your system so you have a functioning PC.  V2.5.4015 is what I show in my corrupt file.

Recovery Repair Center CD Made On 64-bit Windows 7? forums.techguy.org

I have a question on the use of the Recovery repair center CD, which was made on a 64 bit windows 7 system. My friend has a system running Vista 32 bit that has booting problems, so can he use this disk, or does it need to be only a 32 bit Vista only type of recovery disk ? His computer is a HP Pavillion a1744x with Vista Business 32 bit installed. Also is that recovery CD a free download available to burn the iso file to a CD?

Acer :: Recovery CD - 1360 www.notebookforums.com

recovering an Acer Aspire 1360 notebook from recovery CD set (Windows XP Home edition). My harddrive got recently broken and it was not possible to boot the system. So I tried to recover the system from the PQService partition using D2D recovery. It failed saying that the image on the recovery partition is broken. I tried the set of recovery CDs then but it failed again, probably the HDD was unreadable. I tried to format the HDD, first only drive C:, then also drive D: and finaly I got rid of the hidden recovery partition too. Now my HDD is formated with one only primary active FAT32 partition and drive is readable. However, when I try to recover the Windows XP from CD set it does not work. The follwoing things are happening: 1. first inserted System Disk 1/1 and booted from there 2. next I'm asked to insert the first of 2 windows CDs and recovery starts copying the image file 3. in about the half of the way it asks for the 2nd windows CD (since it is not a regular windows version, but instead win+acer apps packed into an image file, there are 2 CDs) 4. at the end of the process, I'm supposed to insert again the System bootable CD and restart. so I do. 5. The recovery process should now start copying files from the CD (I don't know what files exactly), but instead it boots again to Windows 98 environment and starts over the recovery procedure asking for the Windows CD 1/2 etc. I'm afraid that Acer is somehow set up to have those 3 partitions there when recovering from 3CDs recovery set, so I tried to rebuild all three partitions back as they were, but I think I'm not getting it right.

OpenSUSE Install :: Creating ISO-file From Burnt ISO-file On CD-R Gives Different File Length forums.opensuse.org

I downloaded three iso-images, 1 dvd-image and 2 cd-images: openSUSE-11.3-DVD-i586.iso openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso Being paranoid, I created iso-files from the burnt DVD-R and the two burnt CD-R to verify integrity. The iso-file of the DVD-R was identical to the downloaded image. Both iso-files created from the CD-R were different in size. The original size of openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso is 719.323.136 Bytes. I only got 718.938.112 Bytes when recreating an ISO-file from my CD-R. The CD-R is from Sony. When the length of my ISO-file doesn't correspond to the downloaded one, the checksum file verification doesn't work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Does Not Burn ISO Disc Image To CD ubuntuforums.org

I am having trouble burning an iso disc image that I downloaded of the Windows Vista Recovery disc for a friend who cannot boot her computer anymore. I downloaded the iso disc image and it mounts on my computer just fine, so it should be able to be burned as the disc image to a CD no problem. However, each time I right click on the iso file, and go down to Write to Disc, and then the menu comes up and I make sure that the destination drive is my CD/DVD burner drive with a blank CD-R in the drive, it burns the disc, but it always ends up being a CD with the file of the iso on the disc...!! It doesn't burn the image, it burns a copy of the image as a file! I uninstalled the CD/DVD burning software that was on my computer and installed CD/DVD Creator instead from the Ubuntu Software Center. I tried following the steps on [URL] which tells how to burn a disc image from an ISO file. I follow it exactly, but I still get the same results: I get a disc that is not the image, but has the image on the disc. Now, I can mount the image on the disc on my computer, but that won't do my friend any good who needs to BOOT off this disc to fix her computer running Windows Vista. But ever since I wiped out my computer and went Ubuntu, I haven't been able to write an iso disc image to a CD or DVD properly. Does it matter if it is a CD or a DVD that is used? Like, if I put a DVD in, would the disc iso image burn to the DVD rather than a CD because of the way the image was made? For some reason I never thought it mattered, but does it?

Acer :: 5100 Restore Failure Oxa0000002 forum.notebookreview.com

Here is the story: PC started running slow, then started to get system failure BSODs. Unplug the PC of all external drives and such, let sit for 30 minutes and it would work fine for a few days, then all would repeat. So, I made a system restore point, and burned a system recovery DVD. I then tried to do a clean install of Vista Home Premium. Ok, so here's the deal. It was installed onto D drive. Dont know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. But it went through the entire install just fine, the new desk top came up, everything looked great for about a minute. Then it turned itself off and has yet to run. I kept getting an error message 'boot failed' and tried to roll back to the restore point [no good, it reset] and the recovery would not load either. Having purchased the notebook from BestBuy I was not given any restore or system discs, so I ordered both a system restore disc and a recovery from Acer, direct. They came in the mail Thursday. I put the system disc in, and it said it was Loading RAMDISK Image, the progress bar went all the way over and then it asked for the recovery disc. Inserting the recovery disc, the Restore to Factory Default scrren came up, and it warned that "partitioning C drive would erase all files, etc, and did I want to continue?" After clicking OK, it proceeded to run down to about 30% completed and then I received the following Failure to Boot, Error Oxa0000002 So then I tried the whole procedure over, and its the same. Again, and again. So then I called Acer tech, and was told I needed the Acer ISO Image, which I downloaded, unpacked, and burned to CD [using another computer obviously] and it will not even run that CD.

Acer :: Erecovery / Hidden Partition forum.notebookreview.com

I have an aspire 4930 laptop which came with Vista pre-installed. To cut a long story short I installed windows xp to replace this which has been a total disaster (although the system is still working). I would like to start afresh with vista so need to do a factory reset. I have no recovery CDs. I can confirm that the hidden partition PQSERVICE is intact. I cannot however run the erecovery software from windows because it was lost along with Vista and as far as I am aware I cannot download a windows xp compatible version. WinXP over-wrote the ACER MBR so the Alt-F10 command stopped working however I have used a live CD version of GRUB to boot to the recovery partition, sidestepping the need to restore the Acer MBR. When the vista partition boots up Acer eRecovery Management loads, however the "restore system from factory default" and "restore system from user's backup" options are both greyed out.

Acer :: How To Restore Machine From PQSERVICE forum.notebookreview.com

I've recently offered to help out a friend who's Acer aspire has stopped working. It won't book into windows, but she is keen to keep her old files. I installed a 2nd version of windows onto the machine to basically back up the whole disk using acronis true image. I've now got that image storage remotley on my own machine. I think she bought the computer 2nd hand and never got a burned copy of the recovery disks and for some reason the Alt-F10 thing doesn't work to get into the recovery stuff (I've checked in the Bios for D2D) I've managed to make the PQService partition visible and was wondering what was the best way to restore the machine to factory defaults. I created a CD from the STCDBOOT.ISO file, which allows me to book into the recovery manager, but all it does is prompts for the first disk/system disk. I'm guessing that all the data required is held in the PQService partition, but I'm not sure how to create the backup DVD's that should have been done when the machine was first used. I would image that the data is held in the 92EPIXIE.nnn files in the D2D/images directory of the PQService.

When I rebooted, I got a cursor in the top left corner of the screen and nothing else

Ubuntu :: Mount Iso And Install From Recover Mode? ubuntuforums.org

My wife's laptop (6 year old Toshiba) has been running 10.04 for 6 months or so. It is an old and fragile computer, and yesterday it decided to freeze at the login screen (every time it is booted). I can get into recovery mode (just command, no graphics) and all files have been backed up, but I think a fresh install is required. Long story short, we are away from home for a few months and hence I do not have access to a CD burner, and her laptop (being old) will not boot from USB. I do however have an iso file from which I could install Ubuntu. Is it possible to mount said iso file in recovery mode and launch a fresh install from there? If so, how do I do it?

Acer :: Aspire 9402 Windows Installation forum.notebookreview.com

I recently got a Aspire 9402 without HD, so I just pop in another HD. However, I have problem installing a fresh XP onto it. You guys might know the answer. First, I put in an HD with XP installed that worked perfectly on a dell 600m. The Acer gave me a blue screen. This looks reasonable since everything is different. Then I put in a formatted clean HD set to active, and a bootable windows XP installation CD into either the built-in DVD-burner or USB DVD-RW driver. During the startup, I pressed F12 to select the right boot device. However, Acer always gave me error message, and would not boot from CD. I also tried Windows 7 or Vista disks, still no go. It seems to me that Acer is different to other brands I have dealt with, like Dell or HP. I am not sure getting a set of recovery Disks from Acer would solve the problem.

OS X :: Mount ISO As CD In Drive forums.macrumors.com

I understand macs can mount .iso with a simple double click, but I want my macbook to treat an iso file as if it were a CD in the cd drive. This is easily done on a C with PowerISO or Alcohol120% I should be able to do it on a mac too, shouldn't I? But I can't seem to figure out how to. When I double click the iso to just mount it, it mounts fine, i can access files and everything, but if I run a program that reads of the CD i of course get the "Please insert CD". Now, I have the CD right here, that's no big problem, but the using drive kills the battery life like nothing else.

Acer :: Aspire One 110 Recovery forum.notebookreview.com

I have recently got an Acer Aspire One 110 Windows XP Version with 1GB ram for my girlfriend as an xmas present. Anyway while I was setting everything up for her i.e. firefox & msn etc. I spotted in the programs that there was nothing to do with Acer at all i.e. erecovery management, and the only thing was the Acer PDF manual. I then proceeded to look in disk management (right click my computer > manage) and to my shock there was no PQSERVICE or any sort of a recovery partition! The only partition was the main Windows partition! I thought maybe it was because the SSD hard disk is only 8GB. I decided to take a look at the 2 disk that I got supplied as I thought that these were the only possibe way to restore if you had an external disk drive. The 2 disk were labeled System CD & Windows XP Home Edition SP3, The System CD disk was 500MB in size and the Windows one was 2.54GB! That must be the recovery DVD then. I decided to try and boot into the disks on my other laptop and the SystemCD disk did load up and it loaded the eRecovery program but the option to recovery was greyed out (fair enough as it was a different laptop) I then decided to boot the 2.54GB Windows disk and the laptop would not recognise it at all! I decided to look at the contents of the 2.54GB Windows disk manually through windows and all that it has it about 20 .SWM files and some other files but the only application I could see was a program called "ImageX" I then manually looked at the contents of the SystemCD disk and there was only various folders and files but no clickable applications. I am now a bit confused by these 2 disks, how am I supposed to do a full restore the aspire one now incase anything goes wrong?? Could anyone help me out with how am I supposed to these 2 disk or am I supposed to create another recovery disk using these 2 original disks? Or will these 2 disk boot up fine using an external disk drive with the aspire one?

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Hangs On Text Mode With Some Info ubuntuforums.org

I just bought a new Toshiba Satellite C650D which has AMD processor. For some rescuing, I wanted to put ubuntu live CD. Ubuntu starts with some screen but then it converts to text mode and just sit there. I have checked md5sum of the iso file I got , before burning it on the CD. After burning the image, I also checked the directory structure on the iso file and the CD. They are fine. Currently I am writing this from XP. How do I use Ubuntu Live CD. For burning, I used infrarecorder with 'Burn Image' option. I had installed debian and win xp with the same CD , so I can't see the problem with the CD. Anyway, I tried doing this with different CD and the same problem appears. The CD's are memorex CD-RW 700 MB 4X multi speed. And I don't get the ubuntu boot screen at all. Some screen with ubuntu symbol appears and then text mode with some information about the hardware and it hangs there.

Acer Aspire VN-591G :: Windows 8.1 - Uninstalled Recovery Management Software community.acer.com

I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire VN-591G which came with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.   I now wish to reset it to factory settings and I can't seem to do that as I have accidentally uninstalled the Acer Recovery Management software.   The recovery partition is intact, but I can't seem to be able to do anything with it.    I tried booting up using Alt + F10 but it opens up the default Windows 8 boot screen, where if I choose to reset the system it asks me to insert the recovery media (which I don't have as the system only came with the recovery partition).   I think I spent 3h searching through the internet trying to find the Acer Recovery Management software that comes with Windows 8.1 (which I'm hoping will be able to access the recovery partition and use it to restore the laptop to its original state), however, it seems that this is nowhere to be found.   I find it absurd for Acer not to provide this software as a download for their systems - how would you be able to use the recovery partition in case of a system failure ? i tried booting up directly on the recovery partition but I didn't manage to do that (maybe I was doing something wrong - got an error about the disk not being a fixed MBR disk ?    Trying to set the recovery partition as active from the disk management screen in Windows is even more useless. I can't assign it a drive letter either to try to access it (I found some forums post that was suggesting to copy the boot files on the primary partition to allow the system to boot into the Acer Recovery Management screen directly.

There is another partition called C called "SYSTEM" but it contains nothing apart from a hidden Program files folder !How do I tell the computer to boot from the recovered E partition so I can use Windows 7 and create the Recovery discs needed ? Then I can remove the Windows XP installation that I don't want or need.

Acer :: Can't/won't Say How To Wipe & Reinstall forum.notebookreview.com

A few days ago I phoned Acer's local home office in San Jose, CA. I understand Acer customers, like any of the reported support lines, are hard to get thru to. Fortunately I called their home office as they kindly listened to why I was calling (Acer's recovery instructions conflict and can't be followed), eg; the instructions refer to uses of their "recovery media" disk(s) as opposed to either "recovery disk" or "system disk" (which's what those two 'media' disks are labeled and Acer instructions are 'all over the place'; ie; conflicting and uninterpretable). Of note, apparently calls from Acer's H.O. and are answered by support after "one" ring. Because Acer publishes some 5 sets of how to's for recovering their AOA150 OS's and few to none of those instructions agree with each other, including the instructions that are mailed with the "system" disk, I decided to at least clear up what the differences were between the "recovery" and "system" disks. After nearly 20 minutes of repeating my name, most all the details I'd already answered, not to mention having reiterated my question something like 5 times (likely their support people have a so called supervisor who loosely listens to the goings on in their 'boiler room' and pretty likely the workers soon realize to keep the super's off their backs, they simply ask for your name and everything again, just to make it look like they're on another call)......................

Acer Aspire 551 :: I / O Error With Recovery community.acer.com

During restore using Acer recovery disks for this Acer aspire 551, the recovery stalls at the final step where the wim file is written to the c: drive.  It gives me an i/o error. I suspect that the disk is functional because I have run the cmd.exe program from the x:drive and then run both scndsk.exe and scndsk.exe /F to fix any errors.  No errors were detected. However, any fix for this error that I have encountered suggests replacing the hardrive. This seems to be inappropriate, in this case. I should also say that I have used dos commands to copy a file from the system32 directory to the c: drive successfully suggesting that there is no problem with writing to the disk. Lastly, the cd rom hardware must be working or the disks would not be successfully read to the final stage.  How this can be an i/o error eludes me.

Attached external screen from my desktop, no display either, no POST!!. Removed HD, RAM, NIC, no change. No beeping what so ever, really looks like the notorious Acer BSOD i've read about. What I need is the EXACT name I should rename the BIOS file (JE70D118.ROM) to be able to use the Phoenix BIOS recovery function (FN+ESC+PWR) with the BIOS file on a USB key or SD card. Seems to be a national secret or something... Acer does not seem to have this documented anywhere.... including the actual BIOS recovery procedure....
