When I try to format my Acer laptop (which I have done twice before and have had no problems with doing so) this time, when putting in the recovery dics and going through the same procedure, it halts the process and a message comes up saying "Error#88: unable to find drive specified" and I have no clue what to do about it. I'm not sure if this is a general problem or one just linked with an Acer.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks

I will also mark your thread solved.
