Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
The above message is mainly informational and doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. The acronym 'PXE' stands for Preboot Execution Environment. It's an environment to bootstrap computers using a network interface card. Usually the reboot is done by a remote computer on a LAN (Local rea Network). The Realtek NIC (Network Interface Card) somehow expected a PXE boot to be taking place when the computer was restarting. One solution is to restart the computer and go to the boot menu (F2 on some systems) and choose to boot from the master drive.
*Here's a link to a good article explaining what PXE is: http://www.search.com/reference/Preboot_Execution_Environment

Ok this worked for me.
1. Take of HDD,DVD,ROM, Keyboard
2. Plug a usb external keyboard in a usb port from the lap.
3. Turn it on and try to boot into bios and change the boot order to cdrom then hdd.
4. Turn it off, put cdrom and hdd back, load a bootable cd and turn it on, It should boot now from the cd.
