When you installed Windows 7 did you keep the recovery partition or did you completely reformat the entire drive? If you kept the recovery partition you should just be able to boot to it and go through the wizard. If you wiped it all you may be in for some headaches. This is where "RTFM" comes in lol. Always make a backup of the recovery files AND keep the recovery partition.
Go here and download the manual: http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

Exactly. If the recovery partition was wiped during a complete drive reformat and he did not make backup discs, he has no Windows 8 recovery and would need to contact Acer and see if they have options for him.
