Bought a brand new Windows 8 system on Wednesday of last week and had a little play with it. Whilst using it, I suffered a powercut and had no time to create the Recovery DVD's. I'm now faced with this on every boot - With Secure Boot disabled I get this - My question is, if I create a Windows 8 Core USB drive can I recover the system from the Recovery Partition supplied by Acer somehow? Or am I completely screwed? Ideally, if I install the Core version to the Drive C, would I be able to recover using the Advanced Startup Options. or can I install the Core Version, activate UEFI BIOS again and it'll activate a new install of Windows 8 Core - and the Recovery Partition is then rendered useless? Help appreciated.
