Just may the CDROM the top priority, then it may ask you to restart the computer, just let it restart then put the CD in.

    if that is the case you must get the HDD formated. you may use another computer or the CD to do so.

Trying to recover from acer restore cds but keeps coming up with the above eror number and telling me to restart computer


Hello

Can you read the that recovery disk in another computer/laptop? If yes,put the CD into the tray When you boot your system hit f12, then select your USB cdrom, and it should boot then.

If no,you have to check the BIOS settings to ensure that "CD-ROM Drive" is set as the first boot device, otherwise the PC will ignore the disc.

press F2 at the acer splash-screen during the boot process, or when you see "Press F2 to enter setup" at the bottom of the screen.

On the main BIOS screen there is a menu along the top.
Use arrow key to highlight 'BOOT' in the menu bar.

Now you see "Boot Priority Order"
Yours probably has "IDE 0" as first boot device,
and "CD/DVD as second boot device.

The first boot device (IDE 0) is already highlighted.

Press 'F6' to swap them round, so that first boot device is
"CD/DVD"

Now press 'F10'

Highlight "YES" at the prompt (may already be highlighted) and press <Enter>

PC will reboot, this time from the CD/DVD drive first.

You can leave the BIOS set like that permanently so you don't have to go through all that process again next time, just don't leave a bootable disc in the drive unless you really want to boot from it.

I am trying to replace the hard drive in emachine 500is. Now the computer will not recoginize the cd rom to read the windows xp set up disk.


Go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM.

How?
To go into BIOS Setup you start tapping either the DELete key, or the F2 key, ->Right After you see the eMachines logo. If you miss this window of opportunity, simple press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys, At The ->Same Time.
This will restart your computer. Try again.

If you try the DELete key, and this wasn't the proper key, then use the above, restart your computer, and press the F2 key -> As Soon As You See the eMachines logo.

In the BIOS Setup main menu, look across the top for Boot Options. You cannot use your mouse to navigate around in BIOS Setup, you have to use your keyboard. Press the Right Arrow key to highlight Boot Options, then press the Enter key.

Your BIOS Setup may be different for this model. You may have to go down to Advanced BIOS Settings, in the main menu, and highlight it. Use the Down Arrow key to highlight Advanced BIOS Settings, then press the Enter key.

In the Advanced BIOS Settings sub-menu, look down the list for ->Boot Options. Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight it, then press the Enter key.
In the Boot Options sub-menu, you will see a list of boot devices. Floppy Disk drive, CDROM, HDD, (HarDDrive, or really -> HarDDisk), and perhaps a fourth one.

Use the Down Arrow key and highlight ->CDROM. Look down at the bottom of this menu, and see what the Navigation keys are. It won't state -> Navigation Guide, but that's what it is. You want the -> Change Value, keys.
It may be +/-, or Page Up/Page Down. (Plus + key, or Minus - key)

Using the Change Value key, move CDROM to the top of the list. (You have to hold the Shift key down in order to use the + key)
You may have to highlight the device on top of CDROM, and change value of it, in order to get CDROM to come to the top. Keep moving the boot devices, until CDROM is at the top of the list.

After CDROM is at the top, press the Enter key.
Now press the F10 key to save the changes you made. Now press the y key, and then the Enter key.
If you do not press the F10 key, and then the y key, it will be like you have done Nothing at all!
You haven't saved changes.

You may also have the words -> YES, and NO listed, instead of the Y key. (It's shown as a capital Y for clarity. Press the y key. Do Not hold the shift key down, and press the y key)
You can either use the appropriate side arrow key to highlight -> Yes, or just press the y key.
Now press the Enter key. Your computer will restart.

Your computer will now look in your CDROM drive for a boot disk. (It can be a CD drive, CD burner drive, or DVD drive, or burner)

IF, you do not have the Windows XP disk in your optical drive, or IF you did not get it in your optical drive before the computer booted up, don't sweat it.
Just make sure the disk is in the drive, and then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys,
AT THE SAME TIME. Your computer will restart.

Media test failure


Do you have the PXE error?
The media failure is in the boot sequence, on the toshiba press F12 on boot to change boot priority, select cd/dvd or hard drive, or to preclude from happening, press F2 on boot enter BIOS, select Boot options make sure to set priority as cd/dvd, then hard drive, then network or disable network boot. network booting causes media failure.

Install CD won't boot from cdrom drive


Maybe you need to check the boot process in the BIOS and make sure that it tries to start from the CD-ROM and not the hard drive. Usually, to get to the BIOS (I don't know how much of a tech that you are), on start up, hit the "del" key when you turn it on to get to it. Once in BIOS, hit the right arrow button to goto "Boot" and move down to "Boot Priority Device" and make sure that it goes to your CD-Rom first and then your hard drive. Let me know if you have any further questions.
