You must do that in the BIOS. Reboot and when the first screen appears you will see on it the key you must press to enter BIOS (usually Del or F1). In there search the Boot Order - it will be either directly on the main screen or in the Advanced section. Set it the recommended way : 1 CD/DVD; 2 Hard Disk.
And please stop using caps - IT'S NOT NICE TO SHOUT.

How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

Failed BIOS update


Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address.

If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive.


Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board


CMOS battery.

The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions.

Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu.


If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced.


Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key.


Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter."


Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu.


Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer.

Then let your computer fully reboot.

The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically.


When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically.


If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.


hope this helps

My computer wont boot correctly


won't boot at all?
it's probably the BIOS settings
go to the BIOS settings by pressing F8 or DEL
go to advanced settings
look for "boot device priority" or something like that
set the first priority device as your harddisk
save & exit,restart,happy computing

the "boot device priority" maybe not placed on advanced setting,each BIOS has different interfaces,just look for something like that,it's easy

It says reboot and select proper reboot device


Many new boards, you must set the hard drive priority before you set the boot order in the BIOS setup menu. Set your priority to the drive you want to boot from and the boot order to:

CDRom - 1st
Floppy - 2nd
Hard Drive - 3rd

*Don't forget to save before you exit.

How can i change first boot device cd rom to dvd rom


Hi,

To change your boot device you must change the setting in you BIOS.

To do this restart your computer and press delete repeatedly.
When you are in the BIOS search for Boot Priority within the different tabs.
To set you DVD Drive as the boot device make sure it replaces the CD Drive.
Set the DVD Drive as the first priority and your Hard drive as the second boot priority.
Save the settings and exit.

This will enable you to boot from your DVD Drive if a bootable disc is present in the drive.

Let me know if this solution was helpful!

Regards
