My son has an Acer Aspire 6930 laptop. It came with Vista, but he let a friend put a bootlegged copy of Win 7 on it.
Now he just wants to reset the whole thing back to factory settings, but we've been unable to do so. When I try alt and F10, the following comes up:
Edit Windows boot options for: Windows 7
Hard Disk: 91a9ef1d
and then there's a white, non-blinking cursor after it.
In the left bottom corner, it says Enter=Submit
In the right, ESC=Cancel
So, the two questions are:
1. Can the laptop be restored back to factory settings, and
2. Can Vista be put back?
We have no restore or recovery disks.
