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?

Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.
1. Remove or Unplug any recently added hardware.
2. Remove and replace the battery.
3. Press and hold the power button for 7-10 secs to power ON the computer.
4. Try booting to windows Operating System in Safe Mode. (Press F8 key as soon as you restart).
5. Check if the Hard Disk is detected and listed with its capacity of 80GB in BIOS. (Press F2 as soon as you restart).
6. Reset BIOS to default values.
7. If computer boots to windows in Safe Mode, then perform a system restore to an earlier date.
8. Install any updates available for BIOS.
9. If Hard disk is listed in BIOS, perform system recovery using the recovery partition or the recovery discs.
10. If Hard disk is not listed in BIOS, contact any nearest service center to get the computer serviced.
try these solutions:
1.Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
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 which will erase all user data and restore the operating system to its factory default when you purchased the netbook.
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.
When you start your computer press f1 or f12, it will let you know on the screen, you want to press the one with set-up on it. Now find boot sequence and put cd rom as first boot sequence, that way it will boot off the disc and not the HDD (harddrive)
It can only be done when you have created a Restore point when you first bought it.If that is the case,Under accessories,you will find system tools and then System restore.Select the restore point you have created ealier and finish the wizard.That's it.
If your COmputer is not able to boot due to some error then Download "Hren's Boot CD",you will be able to restore your system with that CD by booting your system with that CD in CD-ROM.
