How can I recover my Acer laptop to factory settings after I’d upgarded the OS?

I bought an acer aspire v5 with windows 8 Home. I had some issues and had to get recovery media from Acer. When doing the factory restore I somehow lost the built in recovery partition (still present but not accessible or mounted?). I then purchased a student discounted PRO upgrade and after the upgrade all acer related apps/drivers were removed during the refresh. Since then I’ve moved to 8.1. How can I use the ISO to do a reformat and clean install correctly? What steps are necessary (i.e. reformat, then acer recovery media, then pro upgrade, then clean install?). Any advice is helpful. Thanks.
