    Download a program called super fdisk load it on to a cd then delete all partitions you will then be able to format the drive and load windows.

    since it is an acer Mini i cannot use the disk, still i cannot use a bootable flash drive since i cannot see see usb option from the boot device order. i tried to view the settings by pressing f2 but it requires a bios password! this acer is not helping me

    Have you tried the f12 key to see if it will allow you to boot from a different device.


    You may well have to remove the hard drive given you are locked out of the bios settings.
    YOU COULD BUY a inexpensive hard drive caddy case put the hard drive into it and may have to carry out the upgrade
    from an external windows machine.

    SEND BRIAN8gbSSGlinux an internal forum message, he's very good on linux problems he may know an alternative way round.
