If your "new" hard drive is really brand new from the factory, it needs to be partitioned and formatted before it will accept any software, even from a recovery disk. You can do that either with a slave cable via usb port using the "computer" "manage" function on a working computer, or use a boot CD to partition and format the drive on the computer getting the new drive. Then boot using the recovery disk and follow on-screen instructions.

Drive manufacturers save money by not preparing the drive, but it forces a user to know how to prepare it. Hence your difficulty getting the recovery disk to work. Just partition and format and you'll be ready to "recover".

Boot cd acer AX3400-B3802


What operating system is on this machine ?
What do yo see after booting up ?
1. If it is not booting up and you do not see the selftest screens and it gives a number of beeps then shuts down: count the number of beeps, that can tell you what is wrong.
2.If it is finding a harddrive but then gives a black screen which says something like "operating system not found, insert disk" or "grub error, run grub recovery" then you might need a cd or usb drive to boot from.

You might try Acer's e-recovery if you had that on your computer:

Else look here for Win 7 answer:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1751047/copy-boot-disk-win.html
Note on the link to Microsoft the answer of Andre da Costa.
At a friends computer:
1. download the iso
2. burn a cd disk using the program Imgburn as Andre says.

Then run it on your computer:
NB. you might first need to change the boot order in the BIOS, press DEL or F10 (the right button is displayed during the selftest on screen somewhere) find BOOT ORDER or POWER UP ORDER in the BIOS and put CD drive in first position

Look here for what to do:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-are-system-recovery-options#what-are-system-recovery-options=windows-7
open the 3rd option:
To open the System Recovery Options menu using the Windows 7 installation disc or a USB flash drive, or a system repair disc.

If you have reinstalled the operating system and Microsoft Genuine Check gets bothering you: call Microsoft support and explain that you had to reinstall due to harddrive failure, you will be given a new key for your windows. I have done so several times after hardware failures and reinstalling, they always have given me a new key. But you will have to make clear it was due to hardware failure, f.i. new motherboard, harddrive failure.

I am getting an error message when booting PXE-E61


The hard drive is most likely failing. It is being detected but is not functioning (when a boot device isn't seen or fails to boot, the system trys to boot to network and that causes the PXE error.

Most likely, since the drive detects, but doesn't work, replace the HDD

Recovery Error


Do recovery again, when it asks you to insert disc 2, take out disc one and close the tray. Do not put the disc 2 yet. If you can see the error message again, then it is a RAM issue. You need to reseat the Memory module and try to do the recovery again.

If you closed the tray then no error message came up, it would be an issue with your recovery disc and order for a new one. You can contact Toshiba to have the recovery replaced due to corrupt media.

Hope this helps.
