Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

Media test failure, No bootable device, insert boot disk.

\015 There is no place to insert a disk.\015

Answers :

That happened to me when I tried to upgrade. If you don't have an external DVD drive, you have to copy the restore disk to a flash drive, put it in the USB drive, power up, hit F12 at the first screen, move the highlight to the USB and boot from it.  Oh, and it has to be at least    1 GIG, the USB Flash drive does, or it won't fit. 
Media test failure, no bootable device error message means the hard disk has failed, therefore cannot boot up.
\015\012If reseating the hard drive doesn't fix your problem then replace the faulty drive and install Windows on the new drive to get the computer operational again.
