Acer V£-571 does not accept alt f10

  howard64 17:31 18 Apr 2016

I need to reset to factory default but all instructions say to hold alt and F10 to get into the repair partition but nothing happens. When the laptop starts a message appears saying the pc needs to be repaired Bcd is missing error 0xc000000d. No repair disks are available. Does anyone know a way to get into the recovery partition?

Did you try holding the alt button down at start up then keep tapping F10 instead of holding it down.

What is the Operating System on Disk?

  1. Insert the Windows 8 or 10 installation media and boot the computer using the disc or USB stick.

  2. Boot using the Windows installation disc or USB stick, on the Windows installation window, click on Repair your computer.

  3. Click on Troubleshoot and in the Advanced options. First try the Automatic Repair.

  4. If that does not help, then select Command Prompt. Enter the following four commands into the prompt.

bootrec /fixmbr

bootrec /fixboot

bootrec /scanos

bootrec /rebuildbcd

pressing enter after each one

  1. Exit command prompt and reboot with out the DVD or USb stick, hopefully it should now boot to Windows .

Windows 8 installation media

windows 10 installation media
