Don't need THE boot disks.
A system disk from any OS will do.
Insert disk before power on.
It should tell you whether it is compatible.
If so it will load its own drivers.
and if not it may tell you what OS is on there.
ps. OS = operating system

There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.
