Go into the BIOS setting abd check it the BIOS detects the hard disk and CD/DVD drive. If it detects these drives then go to the boot device order and select the CD as the first boot device then the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
Use the Acer recovery CD you need to boot up with the CD. Go into
the BIOS setting and scroll through the settings until you come to Boot
order. Then move the CD/DVD drive up as the first boot device and the
hard disk as the 2nd boot device. When you boot up the Acer with the recovery CD in the CD/DVD drive then it will boot up with the Recovery CD and follow the instructions.
We Wish You a Happy New year.
Step 1: This might be because of external devices or non-bootable CD or DVD in the CD/DVD drive. Remove all the external devices (including pen drive/flash drive/CD or DVD disc) connected to your computer and then check for the issue.
Step 2: It might also happen if system is unable to find any bootable device. Try restoring default setting in BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) and check. Also please check for the boot priority. For this you have you to contact the system manufacturer.
BIOS DISCLAIMER Modifying BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.
To change your boot device you must change the setting in you BIOS.
To do this restart your computer and press delete repeatedly. When you are in the BIOS search for Boot Priority within the different tabs. To set you DVD Drive as the boot device make sure it replaces the CD Drive. Set the DVD Drive as the first priority and your Hard drive as the second boot priority. Save the settings and exit.
This will enable you to boot from your DVD Drive if a bootable disc is present in the drive.

When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios . Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit. Then it boot with disk . If still not boot then there may be some issue with cd/dvd rom or bootable disk. Let me know if you need more assistance. Thanks.
you need to set the boot device priority in the BIOS in such a way that the computer will take an external CD/DVD-drive as first boot device. to do this, you need to enable USB legacy support first, save and exit from the BIOS settings and then return to the BIOS to set the USB-CD/DVD-drive as primary boot device.
Check the cabling between the drives. Make sure the BIOS sees your drives. Try swapping the ribbon cables between the drives and the motherboard. If you have to, disconnect each device and test them one at a time. This process should isolate the problem device. Make sure that the drives' jumper settings are correct, too (per cable if two devices, one master and one slave, or both devices set to cable select).
