Re: ICONIA W510,how to reinstall windows 8 with recovery DVD

System recovery will erase all the data in the tablet. Please backup the data before following the steps.

On the Iconia Tab W510 models with 32 GB internal storage you need to use the supplied Recovery DVDs to re-install Windows 8.

You will need the following items to follow the below steps:
· External USB DVD drive with AC Adapter. An external drive powered via the USB port will not work.
· USB Mouse

Use the following steps to reinstall Windows 8:

1. Put your Iconia Tab W510 into its docking station.
2. Connect the powered external DVD drive to the mini-USB port on the tablet. Use the supplied USB converter          cable.
3. Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the docking station.
4. Insert the disk labeled System DVD into the DVD drive.
5. Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.
6. Tap Security, and then choose [Set] to create a Supervisor password.
7. After your password is set, select Boot, then select Enabled and choose Disabled to disable secure boot.
8. Tap Main, than tap F12 Boot Menu. Change the Boot Menu setting to Enabled.
9. Press the F10 key to save changes and restart the system.
10. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F12 key to enter the Boot Menu.
11. Select the DVD Drive, and press ENTER.
12. After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

13. Some systems require more than one Recovery Disc. If this is the case, insert the next Recovery Disc in the sequence, when prompted.

14. If prompted to reinsert the System Disc, please so.

15. Note: Some systems may not require this step.

16. Once the reload is complete, the system will prompt for all Discs to be removed and the system will reboot.

Note: In the recovery environment, you cannot use the touch screen or the keyboard and touchpad of the docking station. You will need to use the USB mouse to make your selections.

Yes, you can install the normal Windows 8. You will have to also install the drivers from Acer though, so be sure to download them first.

 

Ya, Anda dapat menginstal Windows 8 yang normal. Anda harus juga menginstal driver dari Acer meskipun, jadi pastikan untuk men-download terlebih dahulu.

If i was helpful, a KUDOS would be appreciated, Mark "Accept as Solution" if your issue was Answered.

a) any USB keyboard and mouse will work.

b) I use a powered USB hub (under U$20) instead of a powered DVD player, that can have wider use than just a powered DVD. (Gear Head 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub for Mac (AC Power Adapter) (UH7250MAC))

 

All Clover Trail tablet are marginal on USB power, hopefully the Bay Trail ones can afford more. Wonder when Acer will announce their Bay Trail(s) ? Would rather not have to buy a Dell or Toshiba for development.

If you have a DVD unit on your desktop you don’t need to buy a USB DVD player. Get a IDE/SATA to USB 2.0 Cable Adapter, these can be found on Ebay for under $5 US. I’ve had one for over 6 years and used it on both my ASUS netbook and Acer W510.

You need two USB units (DVD player and USB mouse) to install an ISO version of windows. You could try using a USB port splitter (also on Ebay for under $5 US), because of the tablet having only a single USB port. I’ve never tried one of these so can’t tell if they work.
