So i finally figured out that i had the wrong priority sequence. I changed it to my d drive. The drive name also included and it booted into a screen that asked if i wanted to try Ubuntu or install it. So i clicked try. And it booted into a black screen. I downloaded the program and put the ISO file on the pen drive installer. Also i backup, well must have backed up windows the wrong way to my other 32 GB disk drive. Main point is that. I either forgot thr bios password or something else. Now i can't get anything. I looked up how to bypass the hard disk Sato password. Which i don't think you can. So i need to call Acer tomorrow morning and figure it out. But i tried to boot from the backup USB drive that had windows 8 on it. I need to know how to backup windows 8 on a flash drive. So it took me yo this blue page that had trouble shooting and advanced settings. Resetting computer. Restoring computer. All that. Can't do it. Let me ask you a question ... So i download thr program. Do i run it or just put the downloaded ISO file on there using yhat pen drive option installer?? Cause i did that. Like when that screen shot showed how i had it. Clicking on thr drive showed all thr boot and other files. Now when i boot from it in bios next time when i get my computer fixed i need to ???... Because it showed a few options. Install and try i tried both. Resulting in a black screen. I'm gonna provide you with my moms number. You can call me and tlk to me. Look in your pms
hey man nevermind. I took it to get it unbricked, i couldn't wait. and plus now i can't get into the bios system. u wouldn't happen to know who to do that do you? i mean it asked for the password, and i can type it in, but when it takes me to the boot screen, tpping f2 doesn't do anything.
