Sooooo, A few months back I was screwing around with SD adapter and starting up my acer netbook at the same time and bango! Now everything has gone hay-wire.
If I try to start it I get a screen that says "no bootable device --insert boot disk. Yada, yada. So the guys at computer shop ask me if I have the recovery cds? Of course I don't so contact acer and place and order for the system disc and the two recovery cds. I also by the way have the original xp disc with key.
After two weeks I finally get all the discs so I definitely feel that I have what I need to get things back up and running.
Before starting I installed a new 160gb hard drive because the guys down at the shop ran some tests and said the old one was bad? Anyway, I tried everything on both HDs and both fail the same way. I also selected the acer to boot from external cd drive in F2 menu.
1) I insert the system disc
2) Run through prompts
3) I say yes to doing a fresh install which wipes everything clean on C drive
4) Then I get two empty progress bars that just sit and do nothing. Both bars stay at 0%. Then after 20 seconds or so I am prompted to insert the recovery disc one. But wait, both progress bars are still empty??
5) I insert recovery one disc and nothing.......
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Also when I try doing anything with my xp disc I get the blue screen which tells me that a major error has occurred and windows needs to shut down?
