Recover your Acer C7 chromebook without Chromebook Recovery Utility or any software..............(Parrot Lapwing a-c 4258)



If you see a message on your Chromebook saying "Chrome OS is missing or damaged," you may need to reinstall the operating system through a process called recovery. (You can also recover without seeing this error, if you want.) With recovery, you’ll be able to restore your Chromebook to its factory settings and get it working like new.



 Reinstalling the operating system restores your Chromebook to the way it was when it was brand new. Unfortunately, this means all of your data will be erased.
  
First, try restarting your Chromebook by pressing and holding the Power button until it shuts down, then turning it back on again. If the message still appears, continue with the process.
