Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
Recovery procedure for Acer netbooks.
The Recovery disc will help you to restore the hard drive with the original software content that was installed when you purchased your notebook. Follow the steps below to rebuild your hard drive. Your drive will be reformatted and all data will be erased. It is important to back up all data files before you use this option.
1. Press the power button to turn the system on.
2. Select to boot from a USB optical drive. There are two ways to do this:
2.1. Press <F2> during the Power-On Self-Test (when the Acer logo is displayed onscreen after bootup) to enter BIOS Setup.
2.1.1. Select the Boot menu.
2.1.2. Refer to onscreen instructions to set the first device to any bootable optical disc drive.
2.2. Press <F12> during the Power-On Self-Test (when the Acer logo is displayed onscreen after bootup), and select the USB ODD from the list that appears.
3. Ensure the Recovery disc is in an external (USB) optical disc drive, and exit the boot selection menu, by selecting Exit Saving Changes from the Exit menu or pressing <F10>, or by pressing <Enter> as appropriate.
4. Select Exit Saving Changes from the Exit menu or press <F10>.
5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation process.
