    Do you have another laptop hard drive to attempt to boot off of with this system? Possibly the hard-drive took some damage from the water and can't read the binary correctly anymore.

When i turn on my Acer Aspire One D255 it says: "check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"


The PXE ROM is part of your system's network interface controller. It is being entered on your system's startup to look for a bootable image on a physical network connection and if found, to boot from that image. If there is no network cable connection to your system or if there is but no bootable device is found on that connection, the result is the error message that you got. As to why your system is entering the PXE ROM can be explained by looking at your system's Setup Utility,,,

Press F2 while powering up to enter the Setup Utility and use the cursor control keys to go to the Boot tab which then shows the Boot priority order. The default order is as follows...
1. IDE0
2. IDE1
3. USB FDD
4. USB HDD
5. Network Boot : LEGACY PCI DEVICE
6. USB CDROM
Your system's internal hard disk drive should be listed beside IDE0 and it will be accessed first to look for a boot record. If the drive fails to boot, the next devices in the list will be accessed accordingly until either a bootable device is found or the last item which is USB CDROM. If a USB CDROM is plugged in on one of the system's USB ports, it will be checked for a bootable record and if not found or no CDROM is plugged in, then the system displays the last part of the message -- insert boot disk and press any key.

Press F12 while powering up enters the Boot Menu which has the Boot Option Menu. This menu should show by default the following...
1. IDE 0: (the name/type information for your system's internal hard disk drive
2. Network Boot: LEGACY PCI DEVICE

If there is no hard disk drive information shown beside IDE 0, then the possibilities are that
1. there is no internal hard drive present
2. there is a hard drive but it has failed
If there is hard disk drive information and pressing enter to select it does not result in an operating system startup, then the drive's startup partition has been wiped and so it has no bootable image.

If there seems to be an internal hard drive present but it has no bootable image, you may attempt recovery from the installation images in the hidden partition. The recovery allows restoration of...
1. operating system to factory defaults
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)

Press Alt and F10 keys together while powering up and the Acer logo is showing to enter Acer's eRecovery Management. Follow the instructions to do the recovery.

Tip

PART 2: Installing multiple Operating Systems on a Clean Unformatted Drive.


Maybe you installed a brand new hard drive in your laptop or desktop computer, or maybe you just got tired of your old setup and wiped your drive clean intentionally . . . or perhaps you were one of the unfortunates who succumbed to a malware infection that left you no alternative. Regardless of the reason, you now have the chance with a new or cleaned drive to set-up multiple operating systems on your hard drive.

There are many ways to do this, however the followiing steps represent the easiest and most trouble-free results no matter which multiple OS combination you decide to try.

You will either need 1) Access to an Internet connected computer with a working CDROM with Write capability and a blank CDR or CDRW . . .

-- OR --

2) A Live CD copy of Parted Magic (my personally recommended partition solution. Its totally free, open source, and a useful tool to rescue data, format a hard drive, USB and more) You can get the latest version of Parted Magic using the following URL:

http://partedmagic.com/download.html The download is available for either a bootable USB Flash Drive or CDROM.

Make sure your computer's start-up is set to boot first from either USB or CDROM (whichever you are using) Parted Magic will load into your system memory and eject the CDROM when complete.

Set the size of your Partitions according to your preference and/or space requirements. Remember to use NTFS or FAT32 as the disk format for any partitions intended to hold Windows operating systems . . . HFS+ Mac Systems. For the sake of this How-To, we are going to make 2 separate "Primary NTFS" partitions of equal size. Once you have set-up and applied your hard drive partition instructions, you can insert your Windows installation (or other OS media) into the CDROM or DVD drive and reboot the machine.

You should be able to follow the normal installation instructions from the install media. Just remember to install each operating system on a separate partition.

Once thing to remember with Windows operating systems: In order to make sure the bootloader gives you the correct options on which Operating System you wish to boot to, its best to always install the most RECENTLY released version of Windows FIRST. For example, on a dual install of Windows XP and Vista, perform the Vista installation first for best results.

Can I boot my e-machine M6810 from a usb cdrom drive? My build in cdrom fell apart and my usb cdrom works when the computer is on, but I can't seem to boot from the new cdrom I have tried changing the...


in short - yes! any e-machine, or indeed any computer build in last 5 years can be boot-up from usb port.

you need to enter bios and setu-up as first boot-up device "other", "boot from another devices", i do not remember which one is actually in this particular bios

plug in your external usb cd-rom, or indeed bootable usb-memory or bootable hdd and they should boot and work as they are on the computer.

another issue, internal cd-rom cannot be really disabled as only mechanical, external part stop working, it' logic part is still there and cmoputer therefore "see" it. you can disable it by downloading newest bios which have bit more power and tweaks than old one.

My System is affected by virus.when i format the total hard drive still it can run within some days.how 2 remove this virus manually or help 2 format the drive using any bootable software...plz...


I suggest booting from a bootable cdrom disk, instead of a floppy disk, USB drive, etc. Everything except the cdrom can quite easily become infected with a virus just by plugging it into the computer. You MUST create the bootable cdrom from a KNOWN clean computer! If you try to create one from the infected system, you can almost be assured you will only create an infected cdrom!

If you don't have a way of creating a bootable cdrom, try booting your system from your Windows installation cd / dvd. Do a complete format before the install and then SHUT DOWN the computer! Do NOT just reboot and continue with the installation of the OS. Viruses are "memory resident" in that they load themselves up into RAM when the computer boots and will remain there until the machine does a complete shut down. I recommend you shutdown (i.e., turn off the computer) and restart the machine a couple of times AFTER doing the format to be assured that the virus is eradicated.

Once you are satisfied the virus no longer exists, you can go ahead with a new install of the OS. The FIRST thing to do before loading ANY of your personal files back onto the computer is to install a virus scanning software -- and make sure it is active and the virus pattern files are current. After scanning the hard drive for problems and finding none, can you go ahead with the installation / restore of your personal files.

Chances are pretty good that the reason the computer runs OK for a couple of days and then the virus reappears is that a file you have installed or copied over from your backup is infected. Each time you launch the program / file, the virus gets installed and the cycle starts again.

If i enable the USB drive in CMOS.after booting the system is hanged.only mother board name mercury is shown.


The problem is with the Installed USB Devices. Check whether you are using any of the USB slots in your system. If any printers or any other USB devices are installed the boot will check with these devices, so your system is getting hanged. Try to disable the USB booting or else remove the usb device and then boot. This will resolve your problem.
