    I have the same problem, the only difference is I'm trying to image it with WDS and it's a Lenovo T500. I imaged one about 3 weeks ago and it worked fine.

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 Boot

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

How can I fix the error I am receiving at initial start up? See details section for Error and description of what has already been done to try and fix.


It sounds like the hard drive in your machine has failed. It uses a standard 2.5" SATA hard drive (Most likely 9.5mm thickness maximum, most are that.) Hopefully you have made a recovery CD set from the recovery partition on the drive.

Where are computer settings on a Lenova desktop computer?


Could you please provide a little more info? What is the operation system you're running (ie, Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, Linux, etc), what settings are you looking for (BIOS settings (for example, maybe you want to change the default boot device from a hard drive to a DVD drive so the computer tries to boot off the DVD drive first), power saving settings, device settings, windows update settings), etc. Also, perhaps the model number of the Lenova would help depending on what settings you're actually looking for.

Thinkpad T60 hard disk drive error, cannot boot from any device


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

How do I access the screen to perform a clean install?


When you first turn on your computer you need to enter the setup screen. This is usually done by hitting esc or f12 or so other key, it will tell you when you first turn your computer on. Once you have done this, you need to find a listing of what devices your computer uses to boot/start up called the "boot order". Once you find this, you need to adjust your boot order to have the cd/dvd-rom drive boot first so that when you insert your WIndows cd/recovery cd it will boot from that and all you have to do is follow the instructions.
Good Luck.

Can I use the Hitachi Deskstar P7K500 HDP725025GLAT80 - 0A35390-20PK 250 GB Hard Drive as a secondary hard drive if I dont have the boot disk for it? If so, how do I go about setting it up? I'v tried...


You actually don't need a boot disk for this particular problem. What the computer is telling you with that particular error message is that it is not detecting any kind of operating system on the hard drive it is trying to start from.

If you installed this alongside your current hard drive, it's likely that the boot order is incorrect in the BIOS, and it's trying to load from the blank Hitachi hard drive. Here are the steps to figure it out:

1) Restart the computer.

2) As soon as you do, start pressing the F1, F2 and Del keys repeatedly until the lights on the keyboard flash. (If this doesn't work, there should be a message on the screen that says something like F12 - Menu or something, and you should press that key instead. In 90% of cases it will be either F1, F2 or Del.) This should bring you into a blue text-like screen. This is the computer's BIOS. You will not be able to navigate with the mouse.

3) Using the arrow keys, look through the menus for a Boot Devices, Boot Options or Boot Device Order menu. The location and name of this menu will vary widely based on your computer's motherboard.

4) Once you have located the Boot Options menu, there should be a list of devices. Follow the on-screen instructions to order them as follows: #1 CD/DVD drive, #2 Your regular hard drive, #3 Hitachi Deskstar. Anything else can just go below that if there are more than 3 options.

5) Navigate to the Save and Exit option in the BIOS screen and tell it that you want to save changes, if prompted.

The computer should now restart and access your normal hard drive to boot your computer's operating system, with the Hitachi as a secondary drive. Once you get into the OS, you will need to partition and format the hard drive in order to use the space.

Hope this is helpful!

I just replaced the hard drive On my Lenovo ThinkPad T60 and I am trying to reboot and install the OS & MS Office. I have a blue screen that reads cannot reboot from any device: Excluded from boot...


Is the hard drive seen in the system bios?Once you upgraded the hard drive did you re-install the operating system.Remember this,,, if the operating system on the drive belonged to another system you will encounter issues when the bios and the new hard drive starts to interact resulting .If you have data on this drive make a back up so you may restore it once the new operating system is installed.
Good luck

Can not Boot from OnBoard SATA Hard drive.....it keeping looping...


Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>.
The Boot Device Menu appears, listing all available boot devices. Each device has a number next to it.
At the bottom of the menu, enter the number of the device that is to be used for the current boot only.

If this works and you want to change the setting permanently do the following:
Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F2>.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the Boot Sequence menu option and press <Enter> to access the menu.
NOTE: Write down your current boot sequence in case you want to restore it.
Press the up- and down-arrow keys to move through the list of devices.
Press the spacebar to enable or disable a device (enabled devices have a checkmark).
Press plus (+) or minus (–) to move a selected device up or down the list.
