Acer Aspire 1642Z WLMI RECOVERY PROBLEM

Options

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire 1642Z WLMI laptop. I want to recover the system from DVD (Factory Recovery). The process runs fine, however, when rebooting (after the process is complete) in the BIOS, the boot order changes to the DVD drive (set to HDD before starting the process). Therefore, the recovery starts all over again, and so on. Changing the boot order before this boot (after recovery completes) does nothing! Please help me quickly!

    Disconnect the USB DVD drive or take out that boot disk, Boot to BIOS with F2, in BIOS Boot Devices screen, move Windows Boot Manager to the top of the boot devices list and save settings on exit, Reboot and you should be ok.

    I believe the 1642ZWLMi came with XP installed, so no Windows Boot Manager. Otherwise Puraw's suggestion seems right. Just eject the disc after the recovery is complete before the boot actually starts.
