Thanks WR2 and daship for your quick response.
ACER 3680 eRecovery console was disabled and wouldn't burn recovery disk eventhough PQSERVICE partion was intact. Should have done this when I bought the computer. (Who knew that ACER would stop selling back up media?)
Using Seagate DiscWizard (free, but only works if at least one drive is Seagate/maxtor) cloned spare drive with all partitions. Once installed, used alt-F10 on boot up to restore original factory image on clone.
Now eRecovery console was able to burn back up media. A bit of work.
