Question about Acer TravelMate 272XC Notebook
I have just bought a new hardrive and would like to know how to format it? Do I have to go into the bios to get it to start up from cd rom if so what do I have to do? I have gone into the bios and tried to get it to start up in cd rom but when i exit it comes up with press H I pressed H but just same thing keeps coming up
Connect the hard drive and set your BIOS to auto setup and select your old HDD as the initial boot device.When the system boots and the windows loads a new drive will appear on mycomputer. Right click on it and select format.. This will solve the issue...

If you're gonna format it using i.e a Windows XP-CD I guess you'll have to press C? H should be for booting to harddrive.
