I have had my ultrabook as a dual boot, windows 8 upgraded from windows 7 and Linux on another partition, I deleted the partion to remove Linux, but every time I turn my ultrabook on it asks me to say what os I want to use, only windows 8 is listed. I am wanting to restore my laptop, but when I try to bring up acer recovery management (<alt> <f10>) it brings up a black screen like a command prompt almost and it says:

Edit windows boot options for: windows 8
Path: \windows\systems32\winload.exe

Partition: 3
Hard Disk: 4267dc47

[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN ]

Any suggestions on how to get this to bring up my acer recovery management so that I can restore my ultrabook. Please let me know. And also if there is a better forum for this question, let me know. Thank you for everyone's help! :)

yes i found a solution to it.
1.
you have to download hirens boot CD, scroll down the page till you see the green box that says download as .zip (http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zi...) copy and paste into browser if clicking doesn't work.
2.
burn the iso image to a usb drive. using iso2usb (http://www.softsea.com/download.php?id=834266351) copy and paste into browser if clicking doesn't work.
3.
go into your bios settings by pressing F2.
4.
change the boot priority order so that the usb drive will boot up first.
5.
exit saving changes.
6.
select the first option "Boot From Hard Drive (windows Vista/7/2008 or XP)
7.
use arrow keys to highlight the choice you want, press enter.
8.
this will open up Acer recovery tool, and allow you to restore your computer to factory settings.
9.
please let me know if this helps!

Forum after forum all gave me Alt+F10 or go to xyz website and create a disc but with Vista or Windows 7 - F8 is the key to the recovery. Choose Repair Computer then you'll find "Recovery Management"
