Hello, all, I am curious about how Acer D2D recovery works. There is a hidden partion (13Gbs size) that contains the image of the Vista Business OS, and this image is used for recovery purpose. When I have Vista installed, and I enable D2D recovery in Windows, I am able to start this recovery during POST with ALT+F10.
However, If I install WindowsXP on C (with formating C partition), this option is no longer available. Why is this so? The hidden partition still contains the image (it is untouched). If I recover Vista from the DVD, then ALT+F10 works.
This makes me think that there is some software on C partition that needs to be available so D2D recovery works, which is quite nonsense, of you ask me. What is your knowledge about this?
