Acer Aspire85 wont boot anything

\015 I need help with my Acer Aspire SA85 when i start it up it stays on the ACER logo and it doesnt let me go to boot menu or anything, I replaced the hard drive inside and tried to install windows vista but the computer wont boot anything at all not even the disc please help.\015

Answers :

You need to get into Bios Setup when the pc first starts.

I am not sure but I think the F2 key lets you into Bios Setup

The primary boot device needs to be the Cdrom drive.

The starting order for the pc needs to be set to
1st Cdrom
2nd HDD

You should then be able to install Vista.
