How do i boot from cd


Depends on the PC, for Dells press the F12 key on the boot screen, this gives you the options to boot from cd/dvd, not sure on other models, the other way is to enter the Bios and change the boot device order, set the cd/dvd as 1st boot then hdd as 2nd.

What is the boot order for acer aspire 7741


To use the Acer recovery CD you need to boot up with the CD.
Go into the BIOS setting and scroll through the settings until you come to Boot order. Then move the CD/DVD drive up as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
When you boot up the Acer with the recovery CD in the CD/DVD drive then it will boot up with the Recovery CD.

Please tell how you install XP cuz i cant instal mine notebook same like yours Acer Aspire 5332


If you have the Windows XP install disk (and not an upgrade type) Simply enter your computers BIOS by pressing the key indicated when you first power the laptop on,(Try Delete, F1 F2) and make sure that in the boot order, the CD/DVD drive comes before the main HDD. Once you have the laptop set to boot from CD, insert the windows install disk and reboot the computer. It should say "Press any key to boot to CD/DVD....." Hit a key here, and then follow the on screen Windows installation instructions.

Okay im going nuts, have acer aspire one black screen says PXE-MOF no bootable device, it says insert boot disk and press any key im livid have no ex drive


It can be a number of things

1: Check in BIOS and make sure the HDD IS detected
2: Make sure the boot order seems OK; make sure the HDD is set to first boot device as a simple check.
3: Make sure no peripherals are plugged in, i.e. printer (to rule out any 3rd booting options)

If everything seems OK, then that's when we'd try a system recovery, stick in the recovery CD / XP CD.

If it boots into the recovery Console then we can do chkdsk /r - If that comes back OK, try and run the complete restore.
If it goes through OK and in to Windows then problem sorted just a software issue.

If it goes through OK but then comes up with the same issue, could be a fault with the HDD.

Good day i have tried to install Win XP on my acer aspire laptop after formatting the HDD on another machine but i cant, the acer did not recognise the HDD. what do i do


Do you have an Xp disk? This is the only way I know of to install Windows Xp without encountering any problems.

You will need the disk; also you need to make sure that the boot options see that you want it to boot from your cd drive. When you start your computer up, get to this screen by hitting the key to enter setup options shortly after hitting the power button. It's where you change your BIOS and other stuff.
This is where you can make sure it recognizes your new HDD and change your boot option to #1-boot from cd drive.

Reply to this if you need more info.

Hope this helps.
