Try to disable the other boot device, or you simply need to first boot the usb then the rest disable.... if the problem still occur, you might not save the setup utility options properly or the flash bios/cmos failed to save due to a weak or a cmos battery checksum error...

How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop

To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.


BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

Set your boot sequence to cd or usb and put in your windows cd or usb and there should be a repair option. Or you can reformat the drive and do a fresh install. Whats happening is the bios is not talking to the OS it could be you need a bios update but chances are reinstalling the OS will work.

My Dell Inspiron worked fine yesterday, but after charging the battery over night and attempting to restart it, all I can get is "operating system not found." What can I do to get my...

What the computer is telling you is that the device it accessed does not have a Operating system. If you have your boot sequence set in your BIOS to access a Floppy disk first, a CD drive second a USB drive third and then your HD last, or any sequence above, then for instance if you left a floppy disk in your machine and the computer was given instructions to check the boot of that first, then it did not find a system. Same goes for CD if you left a CD in your system.

First make sure that you did not leave any items in the drives, and try again. If that does not do it, go into your BIOS, F2, upon boot up and set your boot sequence. If you put your hard drive first and the machine still does not boot up then you have a corrupted boot sector on your drive and must do other things up to re-installing your system.

Boot up does not load to login prompt. It loops after not detecting D1.D2.D3 and goes right back to the Start Windows Mormal prompt

you will have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS.
preee F2 or Del to enter the BIOS - you can change the sequence, set the first Boot 1 = DVD/CD, boot 2 = Hard drive

press F10 exit and save > ok

next time it will iuse the DVD/CD to boot first.

if you set the boot to b1 = Hard drive & boo 2 = DVD/CD......the hard drive boots

hope this help
