    Most Acers I have had have a program that pops up on bootup and prompts you to make a recovery disk. Maybe it is under Acer System in your start menu.

    Your second post only has links to XP boot floppy discs for use if you don't have the option to boot from CD.

    None of the downloads from the file you linked will do what you want, they will only allow access to a CD drive that is not bootable.

    The create a factory default image will make a set of restore discs that will return your pc to the way it was when you first turned it on. With all programs and drivers needed.
