Try this How to recovery your system from bootup

Locate the Alt key, to the left of the space bar, and F10, on the top row of keys.
Power the system on.
When the system is powered on, tap the Alt and F10 keys together at the same time when the Acer splash screen appears.
It should state "Please wait a moment..." with the Acer logo in the upper left hand corner.
At the eRecovery Management menu it will ask you how to restore.
Click on the restore option you would like to use.

U can make a 60GB partition as well. Unless u have many large games installed, there is no need to go bigger. It is fine for most users. and use the other partition for documents and storage. Its good to separate them from the OS system files.

That is a very debated personal opinion!
I myself like to keep windows on one partition and everything else on another partition.
I even move the my documents folder there also.
That way if I have to wipe windows and reinstall all of my data is on another partition.

So 60gb is not a problem even if 100gb is recommended for windows 7? I dont run games at all. (unless you count solitaire?) :D

I dont have a problem to partition the HDD, what I want to know if I should follow the recommened 100gb for windows or what Nikorr recommended of 60gb, since I do not run games?

OK, u need 16GB for Windows x32bit and 20GB for Windows x64bit.

So safe would be 50-60GB- its only for programs and system.

Use this guide to move it off the system drive

U can make it on the 300GB partition too, but u are missing the point here. If mix it together, u will have a lots of fragmentation, so u will have to defrag often.

If u will get corrupted data on the system, your documents are safe. U can just re-image the system or re-install and not to worry about loosing the data and have slower system.

Also to defrag the 50GB takes a lot time to do it than 100GB.

And if it was me, I would do 60GB system, 35GB for small files(smaller than 3MB) and rest for music and video and .......

the choice is by percentage, (20% gives me a partition of 56gb) there is also my concern that there wont be enough allocation for the ms office starter that is also on the installation disc. It is afterall "Completely Restore Computer to factory Default Settings" and the recommendation is 100gb for windows...?

It is more than enough for most people, even with full MS office,

CS5.5 Master Collection, Maya, and ..... 56gb will still do fine with all that : )

And u could increase the size later as well.
