Factory Restore problems, Acer?

I have an old Acer 5535 which has 2 operating system
the original is windows Vista and the new (added last year) one is Windows 7. I want to completelyrestore the computer so that it has only got windows Visat because i would like to pass it on as a gift. The problem i keep encoutering when trying to restore to factory settings with Acer Empowering technoloy is that haf way through the process the computer just completely turns off, thus leaving an unrestored computer and a massive headache. I was wondering wheter i should delte System 32 on Win7 to see if it gets rid of it. If anyone has any idea to get Windows Vista back onto it it would be greatly appreciated
PS. I dont need to keep ANY documents on the computer
Thanks in advance! :D

  1. First uninstall Windows 7 then remove the W7 partition then set it to boot from only one partition then reinstall Vista onto the laptop using the recovery disc set you created for the laptop. You did not tell if you removed the Vista recovery partition or not when you set up the dual boot system. You will need to remove the dual boot and put it back like it was.
