Reinstallation problem from recovery DVD

I just bought an Acer Revo 3600 (4GB/500 GB) for my family. Wishing to change the two partitions delivered (that Vista will be purely historical, since I will have Windows 7) I could not be reduced below the 100 GB for C drive with the disk manager in Vista. Unwilling to let that 30 GB to Vista I decided to destroy the partition after writing DVD resettlement.

I have to use an external DVD burner to burn the DVD of disk image Vista. It was impossible with the "Recovery Manager" of Acer to install files to another media (USB drive, external hard drives, etc.), even when the computer comes without a DVD burner and it can boot devices plugged into the USB socket. I have not had problems to burn DVDs.

Unable to change the partitions to launch the DVD recovery. Can not start the recovery from the EISA partition: What key combination? the doc did not say anything, or I could not find it inside.

The recovery operation went well for playing 2 DVDs. But the computer seemed to ride later in the yogurt to configure Windows ... the pretty ring ... Vista turned, turned. After an hour so I aborted the operation by forcing the extinction of the computer. The computer then refused to restart with a message asking me to repeat the process of recovery.

I decided to leave Vista. But after about 1 hour 30 minutes, I got the screen with a message telling me to wait. I got an interactive screen to enter some configuration settings. Finally I installed everything I needed, and turn my Vista again as it was delivered but I wanted on 30 GB instead of 250 GB

And yet you have the luck that kept you away from your 30 GB partition (perhaps also is the source of slow), many recovery destroy and recreate the partitions to output factory defaults.

If the partition is 30GB, which is slow because of the installation is very possible, it deserves to be tested with a larger partition .... But I have not the courage to lose it again one day ...

Re: Reinstallation problem from recovery DVD

You have the chance to have a functioning of Acer Recovery. Mine has never learned to count (recovery engraved on two DVDs) and after inserting the second DVD read: please insert the first. Ok, please insert the second: ok sir. Please insert the first .... Non ho but it's good eh, and so on.

Acer Support would never send me a support Recovery free. For two laptops, Aspire 5670WLMi and 5930G. Same for the boot since EISA: it never wanted to know, the media either.

Since I no longer touches the dirt and do my own backups (faster and functioning), a stroke can reduce GParted to copy the partition on a backup drive.

Advantages:
- Can boot from a USB key
- Saving on what you want, including USB key or external hard drive
- "True" partition resizing (the files are moved as needed, even NTFS)
- Simple as copy and paste, since it is just copy and paste
- I almost forgot: it works

I think you have the right approach. I've also thought before making my recovery. But I do not think the system would work for both Acer problem. I had also used several years ago on another machine, but from the EISA partition. But I could not remember the manipulation for the launch.
