No bootable device, insert boot disk and press any key
Posted 31 January 2012 - 04:54 PM
I also have Acer Aspire One, thought 772, and I also have just bought it (over Christmas)
Today I got this message – "Check cable connection pxe- m0f exiting intel pxe rom no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key"
I tried to follow your instructions above but I cant even get into Bios.
Also, this is a small notebook with no CD/DVD drive, and no copy of the operating system was provided ….
Any chance to solve it without giving it back for guaranty repair? (bit painful for me, I live in different country then the country of purchase)

F2, F8, F10 or F12 are just some of the possible keys to enter the area mentioned before.

It has to read the bios in order to see the boot device. That is when you can get into the bios to check everything.
Also you said in your first post this was a Sony Viao w- XP professional but now you say it says when i turn on my computer it gives me the acer screen
Two entirely different systems.
For Acer the following should work:
If your computer is unable to boot or you wish to restore the BIOS back to bootable settings and your computer uses an ACER BIOS, press and hold the F10 key as you turn on the computer. While continuing to hold the F10 key, you should hear two beeps indicating that the settings have been restored.
F1, F2, F8 or Ctrl + F8

It has been 30 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (chose "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.
NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, try the Hitachi DFT CD Image version of the software
Thanks to Broni for the instructions

Previously I was able to resend to Toshiba, 1st yr. but now it's 3 yr's, no back up plan. I even attempted to put HGT??? on a cd using my OLD HP, slow but pretty reliable $80 pc I got off Ebay earlier this yr I even gave the bottom right hand side below the number pad a lil thud, as suggested on another thread here on Geeks Go.
I use the Toshiba because it's obviously faster for posting Ebay auctions, researching items I find out & about, etc... While I've been looking for an excuse to upgrade now to the pad world, to eliminate some wasteful buys, fixing the Toshiba is not my 1st.
What worries me, is if this can't be fixed, I don't have a OS to download onto a new hd.
