Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
Reads PXE-MOF: exiting PXE ROM, and PXE-E61 why
also it reads
NO BOOTABLE DEVICE INSERT DISK AND PRESS ANY KEY why?
It means you have no hard drive. check and see if it is loose and that might be it...if thats not it then check your boot order in your settings on the startup screen....let me know

With any standard laptop (your Aspire included) the default boot disk should be set to drive C:
If the system is not finding drive C:, the boot sector may be damage or the drive may have failed completely.
Depending on your operating system (probably Win XP for this one) you can make a boot disk on a friend's optical drive and change the boot sequence in the BIOS setup to your optical drive. Just make sure the disk you've made is compatible with the drive in your Aspire; such as CD - DVD+-, etc.
Once you can get some kind of prompt, either from a basic Desktop or just E:\ from your boot CD, try typing in "C:" (without the quotes) to see if it is accessible. If not, the drive may be bad.
If the drive is still readable, you have more work to do to restore the damaged boot sector.

It sounds like your hard disk has gone, or not being recognized by the computer... Check if it seats well in it's place.
Unfortunately, laptop HDDs don't last long these days.
