1) You can set your boot options in your bios, watch as you laptop boots, you should see something like "Hit F2 to enter setup". Hit F2, select boot options then choose to boot from CD, HDD or external drive. Take care because you don't want to mess up your Bios. So read the screen carefully before changing anything. When you're happy, select save and exit then reboot, you should then boot from the device of choice in the order of choice.
2) Windows boot options, windows has several options for booting from, including safe mode. To do this, hit F8 several times while the laptop is booting, you should come to a screen with the several options on offer.
sometimes there are certain softwares that are already in the system and they have disable any file that might help applications like the itunes to work properly..... so i think you should reinstall the operating system if possible use windows 7
I do apologize for the inconvenience you have been facing.The reason why the laptop does not reboot to Windows even after reinstalling Windows is because the issue is with the hard drive not being recognized the reason for which you get a blinking line on the screen after the Acer logo .In this case I would suggest that if the laptop is under warranty please contact the Acer Technical support and have an order placed for repair.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

You prob dont want to use windows.. Windows even running from a network will use lots of memory.. You are right ubuntu is a great way to make an old pc work great again.. Check out http://www.xubuntu.org/ that is the lightwieght verison of ubunutu and is easy to use..
