Go into your BIOS and select DVD/CD rom as first boot device.
Put your System Disc in the DVD/CD rom drive and restart the laptop.

I have replaced the old sata drive in an acer 5315 and now it will not boot the vista disc from the external disc drive


You have to format your hard drive with special software from acer before you can reinstall the operating system. I had the same exact problem one time.

How to reformat the hard disk of laptop w/o recovery dics?


Reformatting will wipe the drive clean and you will need to reinstall windows, either from the rescue CD or from other media. You may be able to contact Acer and order a replacement CD and install it using the OEM license originally sold with your machine.

If it is merely a problem that programs are not running correctly or that something has corrupted the computer, see if there is a good restore point that you can use from "System Restore." This may allow you to fix the problem and remove the offending program without having to go through the trouble of reformatting and finding the replacement disk.

Finally, since you say that it is Vista, it should be a relatively new machine and it may have a restore partition instead of a rescue disk. If this is the case, there should be a utility in your programs from acer that will allow you to restore the computer to its original form. This will typically reboot the computer and handle the format / reinstall for you. It's possible your friend can't find the disk because he didn't have one.

Just a heads up, typically you can not use a rescue disk from another machine (different make or model) as it will check the hardware configuration before installing the software to make sure it matches the machine the disk shipped with. It is not serial number specific though.

Hope this helps!

Restore factory settings for a acer aspire 5315 laptop


acer dont have a restore, you are prompted when you first boot it up when purchased to make a back up set of discs, i assume you didn't, you will need to lend somebodies XP or Vista Disc , but use your own product code on the underside of your notebook to reformat and reinstall windows.
