My Acer Aspire One ZG5 will not boot with the external usb CD Drive and the Factory CD's!
The drive in the laptop has only one partition of 8GB, there are no other drives that I can detect!
I also cannot start the machine with any other boot cd or an oem version of XP without getting
the blue screen of death.
It will not start using the lan boot PXE either, even with the factory CD's and server software.
How does the factory load the dam thing?
The ALT+F10 is usless at this point because the partition is gone!
And it will not start with cloneZilla either in case you didn't read the first part of this message!
I can make it boot to a windows 98 command prompt ok, but noting els works!
I can use windows 98 cd to partition the drive but it is only 8GB in size, so space is limited.
When I try to boot with the factory CD's, all I get is a flashing curser and noting els.
I can't even boot Hiren's or ERD Commander!
Any other ideas?
