Question about Acer TravelMate 2702WLMi Notebook
My HDD was replaced under warranty by Acer and it seems the Disc2Disc recovery system is not present so to restore the O/S I tried booting from CD ROM with the BIOS sequence set to CD ROM first boot using the supplied System CD. It does not boot this way. I noticed that in the F12 boot menu CD ROM boot is not listed. It does appear to boot from floppy or network. Any ideas?
Check in the device manager if ur cd drive is listed there or not, if not then u need to install the cd driver u canget the drivers and tthe firmware on the manufacturers website.

In the BIOS are you able to "discover" the CD-ROM device? There should be a way such that you can specify what devices are connected to the system.
The BIOS version should recognize what devices are attached to the system.
You may need to "flash" (upgrade) the BIOS. Now a days, BIOS upgrades are available on the manufacturer's website.
Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

It can be a number of things
1: Check in BIOS and make sure the HDD IS detected
2: Make sure the boot order seems OK; make sure the HDD is set to first boot device as a simple check.
3: Make sure no peripherals are plugged in, i.e. printer (to rule out any 3rd booting options)
If everything seems OK, then that's when we'd try a system recovery, stick in the recovery CD / XP CD.
If it boots into the recovery Console then we can do chkdsk /r - If that comes back OK, try and run the complete restore.
If it goes through OK and in to Windows then problem sorted just a software issue.
If it goes through OK but then comes up with the same issue, could be a fault with the HDD.
