The best option for that kind of situation, is a USB install, you can find many on the internet and its legit since you use your serial.

Thats how Operating systems are going to be installed on new laptops.

That or an external drive as mentioned

Is there not a restore program? Have you tried loading in "safe mode"?
I am guessing it was preloaded with Windows so there is normally a partition with restore on it. whether or not your warranty covers it really depends on what the error is. If it is hardware failure and within warantee period then it is covered. If it is software problem then possibly not. Also depends if you took out an additional cover policy on it when you bought it.

Try to find out, return it to where you bought it
or call customer support.

another option is getting an external dvd-drive
or docking station, for future install problems
it'll be connected by usb-port,
and if xp still works, it'll recognize it(plug'n'play)

good luck

Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing or corrupt. On my Acer Aspire One Netbook doesn't have a disc drive. What do I need to do?


You can actually connect an external device on to your computer like an External DVD drive via a usb cable to fix the problem. Or you can also make a USB Drive bootable with an Operating System such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 so that you can just insert it in your Notebook and reinstall your Operating System.

When i turn on PC i get "windows error recovery" windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disk and restart...


You need a Windows OS install or upgrade disc appropriate for the one on your computer (including the service packs you have installed). The Acer disc will only restore to the original configuration. You will need to try to get an OS disc from Microsoft (difficult if your computer is out of warranty) or from someone who has one. Try locating a Windows User's Group (many of the members have multiple OS discs and will lend them out) in your area or a local repair person. Then you can use the Recovery Console.

Alternatively, get a Unix CD and an external hard drive or optical disc writer. Boot from the Unix CD (usually you can press F12 to access the choose boot location). Then plug in the USB hard drive or optical disc drive. Mount this disc and copy your important data from the non-bootable disc to the external media. Then run the Acer disc and download all the updates before trying to reinstall software and return the files to your machine from the .

In Win7, everyone can create this from Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (So then you get one burned from any Win7 computer as long as you match Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate.)

I hope this helps.

(please note that if your restore disc provides an OS earlier than XP SP3, Windows Update will not work. You will have to manually find the updates on microsoft.com)

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

You may want to consider upgrading rather than downgrading.

Disc Drive


Hi,

Like you, have heard of a couple of issues with this particular model as well as some others. Since it is still under warranty, perhaps your best bet is to send it back for replacement. I was also made to understand that since a number of their units have been failing while still under warranty that Acer opened up a page/site specifically to facilitate the return process here. The page has an option for parts only with a number to call (1-254-298-4696). Though this may be your first step, eventually I would suggest that you do send the whole unit if replacing the CD/DVD does not solve your problem. I am tempted to think that it is not the CD/DVD but a motherboard issue.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
