Yes but not ME cd. You can use your old XP cd as a boot disk, ensure that you have set the boot order to CD drive for the first boot, and upon restarting make sure the XP cd is in the CD drive.

    It means that on you XP CD doesn't have SATA AHCI drivers, that's why the system won't detect hardive. Under the bios setting change from SATA to IDE n try again

How to reset the bios on an acer aspire idea 510


Insert the original "System Restore" CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive.
Restart the computer.
Press a key to "change boot order".
Choose to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
Does your computer start to read the disk, and start to load something?

If so, then there's _nothing_ wrong with your computer that _WOULD_ be corrected by doing a "reset" of the BIOS. Put differently, try a "reset" of the BIOS *ONLY* as the _LAST_ thing that you try.

It's more likely that your 'C:' drive has a problem that prevents Windows from loading.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Aspire sa80 how to get it to boot up with dvdrom so i can install vista


Enter bios setup by pressing F2 key or DEL key. Once you are in bios setup, go to BOOT or STARTUP setup. Look at the list of devices listed from first to last. It might has floppy or hard disk as first boot list. By using + - or pageup/pagedown, move your dvd rom to first place. This means that when you startup your computer, dvd rom should pick up as first boot. Don't forget to put the vista cd in the rom before your computer starts. Just a basic thing to remember, make your dvd rom first priority on boot or startup list. After finishing the loading, make sure to reverse the setting back to normal. Thanks

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
