Reinstalling Windows XP Acer Aspire One

Last weekend, I bought an Acer Aspire One D-150. I decided to put Windows 7 on it. I can not find a copy of Acer's eRecovery Management anywhere on the internet. I have tried making an image of the hidden partition with Macrium Reflect but it's not bootable. I still have the hidden partition on my HDD, I just can't boot to it. if I hold ALT+F10, I get a "Change Boot Options" screen.

I want to return this on the weekend because it was sold to me under false pretenses (I wanted an MSI model because it's better for me in a lot of ways, but they lied about the warranty on the MSI to get me to spend $50 more on the Acer). I need XP on it. Help? I need to install XP.
