Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
It's not able to see your hard drive. Something may have changed in CMOS about the boot order. You should enter the bios and see if it sees your hard drive. Then go into advanced boot options. First boot object is usually set to CD Rom for setting up operating systems and the second boot device should be your hard drive. Third boot option can be left at none or a floppy drive if you have one. If the bios is seeing your hard drive and it is set as a boot option then the drive may be damaged or system files have been lost. If there are valuable files on the hard drive and it is failing then you might consider taking this to a professional and trying to rescue your files asap before the drive deteriorates any more than it is. You can also try some repair options from booting off the Window's CD but beware that formating your drive is one of the options and this will erase any files you have on the drive.

The Windows Error Recovery message can appear for several reasons- an improper shutdown, new software, new hardware, etc. Since trying both options that you are given doesn't work, you need to troubleshoot the Windows startup error. If you have recently added new hardware, disconnecting or removing it could solve the problem for you as it might be creating some type of incompatibility.
Troubleshooting Windows Error Recovery: Last Known Good Configuration
You can attempt to boot up in Safe Mode and select Last Known Good Configuration and see if that works to resolve the Windows startup error. Turn the computer on and immediately begin to press the "F8″ key. If this does not work, you might need to press the "F2," "F10," or "F12″ key. Once you see the prompt screen, select "Last Known Good Configuration."
Troubleshooting Windows Error Recovery: Booting up from the Installation Disk
If that did not work, try booting up the laptop using the Windows installation disk - provided you still have it. If so, follow these steps:
1) Turn the power button to your laptop on.
2) Immediately insert the Windows installation disk that belongs to the laptop.
3) When you see the option for "Check System," press the "ESC" key. Next, press the "F1″ key. Your laptop should now boot up.
4) You can now use the "System Restore" feature to allow your laptop to return to a previous setting when it was functioning properly. This might mean selecting "R" for recovery.
