To boot up from the DVD drive go into the BIOS setting - boot device order and move the DVD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
If you want to boot up with the USB then move the USB as the first device. If the USB is not listed as a boot device then it is not possible to boot up with an USB device.

    This means you have a motherboard/BIOS problem.
    This may work.
    Try reseating the hard drive and then see if the Acer will boot up with the hard disk.

I have kept a problem,my laptop FUjitsu Simens Amilo D7850 doesn't get boot and BIOS yet.


You were running Windows XP SP3 and you want to upgrade to Windows 7. Windows 7 and Windows XP are technically very different and apparently your Amilo is not capable of running Windows 7. It requires more RAM, more disk space and also more powerful hardware. You should visit the Fujitsu website to find out if your computer can run Vista and Windows 7. Personally I doubt that.

Laptop came with windows 7 factory installed on it. A friend accidently formatted the hard drive.


Either download an installer disk on to a DVD or partition a harddrive with an installer disk on it. Boot from that disk and restart the computer, it should boot up and ask to install Windows 7.

Try booting up your laptop with the Windows 7 installation CD to install Windows 7 again.
If you cannot get the laptop to boot up with the Windows Cd then go into the BIOS setting and make the CD drive the first boot device and the hard drive the 2nd boot device.

Pull the hard drive, remove the battery AND the BIOS battery. Let it sit for 300 seconds. Then replace the BIOS battery and the main battery, but NOT the hard drive, then go into BIOS SETUP, and choose the default settings. Then boot to a bootable CD (such as Hiren's BootCD 15.2, or Parted Magic). Then set the boot options to NOT BOOT to the hard drive. Then reinstall the hard drive, and boot to your Windows installation CD, and reinstall the OS of your choice.

I tried to install windows 7 on my HP Pavillion DV9, but it's not booting from CD-ROM, i tried using a USB CD-ROM, but it's still not booting. pls I need assistance.


Hi,

Try to check if the windows 7 disc that you are using is not just an upgrade disc. Make sure that it is a bootable disc. Try to use other bootable disc to test. Also make sure that the boot device priority is set CD/DVD drive.

Hope this helps.

I can't boot up. it display error 2100: Hard disk drive initialzation error.


This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in BIOS or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive.

Try this:

Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected properly.
Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.

- Floppy drive
- CD drive
- Hard drive

Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.

Boot from either your emergency repair disk, your bootable Windows CD, or your bootable restore CD.
Once boot attempt to repair Windows. If you're able to repair Windows remove the disks and reboot the computer.

If the above fails:

Verify the connections are properly connected to the computer if the hard drive was recently installed or the computer was moved.

If all connections are setup properly and all the above recommendations have been attempted, it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad and it will need to be replaced.

Let us know how it works out.

I tried to restore my sister laptop..but i got a message saying restore failed..so when i tried to restart the computer...i just got a black screen with the message NTLDR IS MISSING...Press ctrl+alt+Del...


Hi there, I did a bit of research on this for you and this is what I found:
First off, there are numerous causes which could be giving you this message. Odds are it's because reformatting wasn't completed properly, which means something on your computer hasn't been set up properly.
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32. New hard disk drive being added. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable. Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS.
