SOURCE: Missing Operating System error

Missing Operating system means there is no Operating System on your hard drive or it has been currepted. As you have re-partitioned your HDD, the previous DOS version has gone.


  1. Goto BIOS Setup
  2. Select Boot from CD/DVD in Boot Option
  3. Save Settings and Exit from BIOS Setup
  4. Put your Windows XP Setup CD in CD/DVD drive
  5. Make re-start
  6. It will ask 'Press any Key to Boot from CD', then press any key.

Now setup will be started, just follow on-screen instruction and it will be finished after a restart till then don't remove the CD.

If any problem occurs....Just Ask me

SOURCE: USB ports quit working

I had this happened to me also. you need to check the system bios to see if something shut the USB ports off. normally hitting DEL or f10 prior to bootup will put you in the system BIOS. Normally all usb ports disable because a device was unplugged without properly shuting the device off.

How to install os to a new pc with freedos

Alright, here is what you need to do. Go to the BIOS. When you turn on your PC, it first shows the manufactures' message. Under the logo there should be a instruction on how to open the BIOS. Press the button that opens it. Go to the tab boot, and select the CD/DVD drive as boot device 1#. Go to the tab exit, and select "Save settings and exit". Insert the CD/DVD with the Operating System of your choice. If FreeDOS already booted, reboot the PC with the disc inserted. Wait untill a line saying "Boot from CD" (It could be anything near this) and press any key. Now follow the steps of the installation. If it doesn't say this, it might is not a bootable CD/DVD. Purchased disc with Windows should boot. If not, bring it back. I hope this helped, and if the problem persists, don't hesitate to come back to FixYa. Thanks, and have a great day.

I want to charge the battery from the pc?

Linux-based Acer Aspire One Non-Charging Battery Solution

STEP 1: On a separate PC:
1. Go to or
2. Click on Driver & Downloads
3. Select Product Family “Netbook”
4. Select Product Line Aspire One
5. Select your Product Model i.e.: AOA150 (located under your computer, after MFG.Date:xxxx AOA 150 – xxxx)
6. Click on the BIOS tab below (don't worry if you don't see Linux listed – BIOS is OS-independent)
7. Download BIOS to a temporary folder on your PC
8. Extract and make sure you know where you put the extracted files. You will only need three of them.

STEP 2: On a separate PC:
1. Ensure a USB memory stick is plugged in and run UNetbootin by downloading and running from:
2. It will prompt for a “Distribution” – change this to “FreeDOS”.
3. At the bottom of the window ensure the “Type” is “USB Drive” and check the “Drive” is the drive letter of your USB memory stick.
4. Click on “OK” and FreeDOS will be installed onto the USB drive. At the end don't Reboot.
5. Now copy some of the extracted BIOS files onto the USB drive as well. The only files you need copy are three: go to the sub folder BIOS_ACER_3310_Windows_AOA110 & AOA150/Dos_Flash, and copy the files 3310.BAT, 3310.fd and FLASHIT.EXE to the USB stick
6. Remove your USB stick from the PC, and plug into into your switched-off Acer.

STEP 3: On your Acer:
1. Reboot the Acer and press F2 at the initial “splash screen” to go into the BIOS settings.
2. Once in the BIOS arrow across to select the Boot Menu and move the USB HDD to the top of the list (using F5 and F6 to move them up and down). (I also moved USB FDD and USB CD-ROM)
3. Press F10 to save and exit.
4. Your Acer should now boot from the USB stick.
5. The FreeDOS screen will appear with an option to select a default option. Do this.
6. You will now be presented with a list of boot options – select option 5 (FreeDOS Live CD).
7. You'll get an error message about missing CD-ROM, which you can ignore and you'll be at the DOS A: prompt.
8. At the DOS prompt go to the B: drive (i.e. type “b:”, without quotes, and hit enter – the B: drive is you USB stick) and run the the 3310.BAT script (i.e. type 3310.BAT, without the quotes, and hit enter.
9. The BIOS should now install and reboot your Acer. Click on Settings and then System to check your BIOS has updated.
10. Restart your Acer and repeat 1. and 2. above just to make sure the Boot priority order has your hard drive at the top of the screen. It will probably have reverted automatically to the original order. If not, use F5 and F6 to put back in the original order.

I forgot my password

Some body had posted this solution at one of the forum sites. Not sure if it will work for you..
I resetted the bios password of my second hand Acer Aspire One 110 with the software killcmos on a bootable USB Stick, which resets CMOS Settings to factory defaults. Worked without a Problem for me.
This is how it works:
1. Get an USB Stick and format it to FAT or FAT32
2. Get the software Unetbootin to create the bootable Stick:
3. In Unetbootin, select Distribution: FreeDOS 1.0 / Type: USB Drive / Drive: Drive of your USB Stick
4. Get the software Killcmos which resetzts the bios: !!! ATTENTION - Virus Scanner will detect it as a Virus, but it is not. It has the capability to change the Bios and that’s the reason why virus scanners alert. So turn your virus scanner off or exclude this alert.
5. Drop killcmos on the USB-Stick
6. Boot from the stick and when arriving in Freedos select Point 5 (Cd only something), then find the stick with dos commands and run
Attention, this is for experienced users who know what they are doing. Anybody following this doas it on his own risk!!

I do not have any exprience with using this.

Unable to boot Vista install DVD on FreeDOS

Your DVD should be bootable -- that is, restart and it should boot off DVD. If in fact you have an installable copy of Vista, and you have a working DVD drive.

If those two answers are correct, restart your computer and immediately figure out how to get into the BIOS -- Normally delete, F1, F2 or F10. Hit 'em all real quick and keep trying, looking also for something like "To enter into system configuration, hit ..."

There should be an entry for boot preference. Just make sure CD/DVD/removable media/ATAPI drives are listed before your hard drive.

Some way, you have lost your operating system. You should try to reformat your hard drive, and then install a fresh copy of your operating system. This has happened to me before, and what I am saying here is what I ended up having to do.

HD format

Hi, Your idea is basically correct. Other alternatives are: 1. Boot from and run Basic MS-DOS or FreeDOS with disk utilities in the FDD of the PC where the HD(s) installed. Set to boot first in FDD in the CMOS/BIOS; 2. Run MS-DOS or FreeDOS with disk utilities in a CD in the CD ROM of the PC where the HD(s) installed. Set to boot first in FDD in the CMOS/BIOS; 3. Use an external enclosure to connect the IDE & power connections of the HDs to a USB port of another working Windows PC. Is is similar to your idea but you need not open up the 2nd PC nut would require the interface device. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
