    Thanks Charlie but I am just going to go back to Windows 7. All of that seems to be above my pay grade. But Thanks again!

    Jesse, can you be more specific as to what "Acer software" you put back on? Check MSCONFIG (WIN key + R), and make sure the OS's you expect are there (under boot tab). Post back results and screenshot.
    Back when I deleted my Acer recovery partition by accident, I was told on Sevenforums.com and other by Acer to order the Acer eRecovery Software so that I can restore it whenever need be. So, I've ordered the eRecovery Software put everything back on, but now I can't get my dual boot configuration to show up.

    I can't get my dual boot configuration to work. It was working fine, until I put my Acer software back on. Can someone help me?

    OK I did it according to the instructions and once again Windows 10 boots just fine and it shows as C;\ . The only problem is that I cannot boot into Windows 7. This , I cannot live with. Please if anyone has any suggestion I would apprecite it. If Not I will use the MR recovery Disk and go back to 7 until the final.n Two tries--same result.

    Ok here it comes:

    Attachment 19228

    Attachment 19229

    Attachment 19230

    Now when I select Windows 10 it goes there. When I select 7 it reboots and then goes to the automatic repair thing.
    I do not see the System Reserved Partition at the beginning of the drive. He's got a roached MBR, etc.

    Jesse,, have you executed diskmgmt.msc from the Run?? Press the windows button followed by R.. and enter that command. Then take a screen shot.
