Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing or corrupt. On my Acer Aspire One Netbook doesn't have a disc drive. What do I need to do?


You can actually connect an external device on to your computer like an External DVD drive via a usb cable to fix the problem. Or you can also make a USB Drive bootable with an Operating System such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 so that you can just insert it in your Notebook and reinstall your Operating System.

Installing cd/dvd games on acer aspire one a110


Get an external CD/DVD drive (USB) and run the game from that. (It's probable that you are hitting a copyright lock that needs the original disc.)
