used the upgrade discs from acer on my aspire 3053 wxmi laptop, to vista . now the recovery command doesn't work. anyway after about a month of a slow computer , ( thankfully had made a back up disc ) , decided to go back to win xp media centre. this i managed to do. everything is fine apart from the alt - f10 command on start up.
i ran the computer management console and the recovery partition is there and shows healthy, .
does anyone know how to fix the mbr to make this partition active again , or am i pushing the wrong buttons.
any ideas would be gratefully received
many thanks in advance
