Dual Boot Issue w WinXP and Acer eRecovery Utillity, Advice appreciated.
Hey I have sort of a specific problem with my acer aspire one, it's really only coincidence that I had fedora installed, but I have had no help on the acer aspire one forum so I thought I would try here where people might be a little more used to dual-booting.
My problem is that I want to install a fresh copy of windows because it has gotten slow and laggy, and I want to give the computer to my younger sister since I just bought a new computer.
And so, I removed GRUB boot loader by fixmbr using a dos boot disk on usb, so that I could run the acer erecovery software which keeps a fresh copy of xp installed on a separate partition for reinstallation of windows.
However, even with GRUB gone, and windows booting directly, the erecovery won't start, it just boots back up into windows even if I have run the erecovery program which prompts the restart.
I'm just not sure where to go from here, I can clean up windows and my other option would be to remove windows completely and just use fedora, but I like the idea of still having that erecovery partition on it since there is no optical drive on the computer.
Any thoughts as to why the eRecovery isn't starting up? I know this is kind of particular but I would love to hear any thoughts. Thanks.
