Go to your manufactures web site, if there is an upgrade they'll have it or be able to tell you where you can get it.

Your hardware may not support booting from USB in which case you won't be able to find the correct BIOS upgrade.

How do i reboot my acer aspire E1-510 from cd or dvd disc


It appears to be F2 on startup when you first see the Acer Logo
I searched the model via www.acer.com - aspire E1-510 and there are links to the manuals,
A note says. to activeate the BIOS utility press <F2> when you see the Acer logo during boot up.
you should then be able to select the boot order. e.g CD/ DVD, USB, Hard Disk etc.
Also try F9 for Windows boot options.

How can i boot my acer 1640 laptop from usb drive (external dvd), the bios have no option. Thanks


Do you still have the problem?
In BIOS setup go to the Boot section and move the cursor down to the harddisk line.
If you started your PC with the USB device connected, the Harddisk line should have a "+" to the left.
Press enter on the Harddisk line and move to the USB.. line.
Press F6 to move it upward.
Do the same to move the Harddisk line to the top before the CD/DVD line.
Save the settings and rebootReboot, and it should boot on the USB device.

Acer aspire one 1640Z XP BIOS RECOVERY WON'T READ USB WITH BIOS


if I understood correctly you have the recovery software loaded on a stick flash drive and you want to boot from usb to restore the pc .....There are a few things that you have to know about to do that ...
first you have to go to bios and enable boot from another device ....other than hdd /cd or flopy ... for some elder bios this isnt even a choice ..or ..if it is ,,it will be as a sub options into the hdd...choice ..
another thing that you have to keep in mind ..is that you have to disable the other options to force it boot from this one ...or ....to press f8 on boot and manually choose the usm or the stick name that will appear on boot devices...
the most important thing is that if you already formatted the hdd it does notr have a usb driver loaded and that why willl not see the device ...also the device you are using to boot ...has to be specially formatted to be bootable ....this is made ussualy with a hp format tool ...and it is explained in more than one places on the net ...just look for making a boot-able stick (usb device)
in short ...make sure the sticvk is boot-able ...second the pc ha s teh capability to boot from another device ...and this is a feature that you already enabled like first boot device ...
than things will be easy ...it will ask you to press any key to boot from the usb ...and continue like an installation from the cd ...
if you cannot do it ...I recommend using a cd ..or an image that you will ***** in a virtual cd ...for those that do not have cd drive ( use daemon tool )
