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

How to boot from an external cd rom on a dell optiplex sx260 because it does not have an option to boot from an external cd rom..


Maybe it's not installed into windows, or whatever system, with a "driver." That is a program you can get off the internet that tells your computer how to operate that device.

Once installed, a restart and going into bios setup, you should find it in boot priority under the boot tab. If installed it should be there and you set it to top priority and save with f10 and exit. It will reboot and look first in the cd rom for an operating system.

I have hp compaq nx 9020 and I installed linux as my only os, but now I want to change my os to xp but bios says "no boot file name recived" how to fix this?


It seems as if you have some of your boot priorities out of skew, specifically having booting through your network connection as a higher priority. In order to fix this, you need to go into your bios settings and rearrange the boot settings so that booting from LAN is either disabled or not the top priority and making booting from CD or HDD the top priority.

How do I boot up an operating system after my hard drive has been wiped


If your hard drive has been wiped then it means you will need to re-install your operating system onto it. To do so follow these simple instructions:

Step 1) Press the Delete key as your PC boots up. This will take you to the BIOS.
Step 2) In the BIOS find the boot disk priority. Set priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and set priority 2 to your hard drive.
Step 3) Save and exit the BIOS.
Step 4) Insert your operating system install disk into your CD/DVD drive.
Step 5) The installation should now start.

Bios bbot device proirity is missing


Try pressing F12 while booting or DEL etc. as some PC's have a seperate boot priority menu from the BIOS.  Once you can boot from the install cd you can use it to fix your master boot record by entering the recovery console and using the command fixmbr.  Hope this helps :)
