Normally you don't need to change anything, if the hard disk setting is set to auto (detect), the system will whatever hard drive is installed. You need to change th boot order to the CD as the first boot device so you can install Windows from the CD. If you wish you can change the hard drive as the first boot device after you install Windows.

Hi,
If the Back Up Disk you mean the 2 Recovery Disks that you have burned from the eRecovery in Acer.

You have to enable D2D Recovery on the BIOS Setup, it's usually on the second page of the BIOS Setup on a Acer Aspire Laptop.

Please Rate, Thanks

Problem is that I have just installed a new hard drive in my Acer Aspire 5315 or is it 5135. All this after I have set up in the f2 start up page for the cd rom to be the boot drive and a windows...


Hello,
This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions exist:
  • The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
  • The hard disk is damaged.
  • Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).

    Note Some third-party programs or disk corruption can damage an MBR.
  • An incompatible partition is marked as Active.
  • A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
To solve this, try one or more of the following solutions:
Verify your BIOS settings.. uparrow.gifVerify the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that BIOS lists and recognizes the hard disk.The documentation that came with the hard disk should aid you in doing so.

Use Recovery Console..Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery (or relevant OS) Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition. Be sure that a virus isn't present on the system and that their aren't any hardware errors as this could prove fatal to your hard disk.

My boot priority order changed now my computer wont go to my desktop


Hi!
Sorry, I hope I was not too late. You can fix priority order issue by restoring the default value of BIOS. You can do that by doing the steps below:
1. Reboot your Acer Aspire 5315 notebook.
2. Wait about 30 seconds until you see the Acer logo on your laptop screen.
3. Press the "F2" key on the keyboard to enter the Acer Aspire 5315 laptop BIOS menu.
4. Select the BIOS option "Load Default Setting" using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Then press "Enter."
5. Press the "F10" key to save the BIOS that is reset to the factory default settings.
Hope this helps.

Removing Vista and installing windows xp


Before you attempt it, make a couple of changes in the BIOS to hopefully work around a few problems that might crop up.

"BIOS setup (f2) and set the hard drive to ATA compatible."
I would go ahead and disable everything in the boot heading besides the DVD/CD.
You also need to disable caching module before you change the drive SATA settings.

Acer aspire 5315 doesnt boot blank screen


When you power up the laptop press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios setup.
Then check your harddisk is detect or not?
Then also make sure SATA option is disabled in bios.
Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddrive.Then save settings and exit.
But if you even not able to enter in bios then you have reset bios settings and Refix RAM memory .
For that open back cover fo laptop and find cmos cell on motherbord pull it for 10 minutes so all settings of bios goes to factory defaults.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

Acer 5315 recon harddisc security password required


Hello,

Bad news, someone has set the hard drive security option. The hard drive is hardware locked and can't be unlocked without the password. Not even putting the hard drive in another machine will bypass the security. You can send the drive to hitachi repair in Dallas, Tx. for recovery but it is very pricey.
