Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
I am giving my old computer to my son, I wanted to format and do a system recovery so his computer would not have all my old suff on it. I put disk 1 in and it sent me to a screen that gave me the choice of doing a recovery or a format. I choose the format and it started to work. told me that all files including dat files on the user partition will be loast and the original factory shipped filse will be recovered to the user partition. Do you want to continue? I clicked yes. said hard disk preparation...please wait. then a box came up that said harddisk preparaton finished, you system will be rebooted to continue the installation process. Leave the recovery cd in teh drive and bood again on the cd. I clicked ok and it rebooted, then a messeage came up on a black screen that says Boot from Atapi cd-rom: No emulation. then gave me the choice to press r to display system recovery options. so i did and the whole process started all over again. Please help me.

When you finished doing the formatting for the first time please remove the disk from the drive or please dont press any key when the computer prompts you to ....boot from CD.
