Accessing BIOS in Acer Aspire One Model ZE6 Series D257 (Windows 7 Home Premium)?

minustenminusten Posts: 1Member

Does anyone know how to boot to a CD (using a portale USB CD drive), or how to access the BIOS and change the boot sequence? It is an Aspire One Model ZE6 Series D257 running Windows 7 Home Premium. I have tired pressing the F2, DEL, ESC keys on the splash screen but get nothing.  Pressing F8 does not give the Safe Mode page either.

    From the service guide:

     
     
    BIOS Setup Utility
     
    The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). Your computer is already properly configured and optimized, and you do not need to run this utility. However, ifyou encounter configuration problems, you may need to run Setup. Please also refer to Chapter 4 Troubleshooting when problem arises.
     
    To activate the BIOS Utility, press F2 during POST (when “Press <F2> to enter Setup” message is prompted on the bottom of screen).
     
    Press F2 to enter setup. The default parameter of F12 Boot Menu is set to “disabled”. If you want to change boot device without entering BIOS Setup Utility, please set the parameter to “enabled”.
     
    Press <F12> during POST to enter multi-boot menu.
    In this menu, user can change boot device without entering BIOS SETUP Utility.
