I just recently formatted my Acer Aspire 5315 because Windows 7 wouldn't really do anything, it wouldn't even let me re-install Windows 7!
So, I formatted it (foolishly I only let it get to 6% befor formatting the System Reserved partition), then tried (at least) installing Windows 7 back into it (through my new 8GB PNY USB drive as my CD/DVD-ROM Drive is busted).So, I booted it, hit F12, selected my USB HDD and what's the first thing I see pop up? "Missing operating system", even though the install disk is there. And this happened with: Windows 7, MAC OS X 10 Snow Leopard (works with Intel Processors), and Snow OS X Universal (also works on Intel).
So is there any way I can fix this situation without having to go to the repair shop, because I really don't have any money to spend?
