This is what I have so far:
I've tried a full system restore on original acer aspire hdd, I have 3hdd's.
1. I imaged original 40Gig drive on debian, then started system restore, Alt+F10 wasn't working.
2. I unhid PQ Service copied WINMBRWIN & RTMBR.BIN.
3. Then executed "winmbrwin install rtmbr.bin".
The Alt+F10 key works now but wouldn't complete.
The result that I got was not what I expected but it atleast shows that I have what I need for my VM.
1. Do I need to finish restoring the drive to make an image for VM or can I use what I have and finish at VM?
Attached is a screenshot.
