  1. Toshiba satellite wont boot to USB

    you have to disable 'Fast Startup' within windows, and then 'Secure Boot' in the bios, and once you've changed Secure boot to disabled you can then change your Boot option to 'CSM' instead of 'UEFI'. THEN, you can change the boot order priority to 'USB' first and it will actually boot your bootable usb device.

    Warning: When you change to 'CSM' boot option, your computer will no longer boot Windows until you go back and change the boot option back to 'UEFI'.

    Instructions on how to disable Fast Startup (which then gives you the ability to boot into bios) :

    Login to windows, hit the start key and 'Control Panel', then click on Control Panel. Type 'Power' and click on 'Power Options'. Then click 'Change what the power buttons do'. At the top you will see 'Change settings that are currently unavailable'. Click it, and then click Yes. At the bottom of your Power options (scroll down) you will see a 'Shutdown settings' with a 'Turn on fast startup (recommended)'. Uncheck that box and hit save changes.

    Reboot and hold down F2 at boot to enter bios

    Instructions on how to Disable Secure Boot and change to CSM boot within bios:

    Once in bios go to the security tab and change 'Secure Boot' to disabled. Then go to the Advanced tab and press the down arrow key to System Configuration and hit enter. go to 'Boot Mode' and change it from UEFI Boot to CSM Boot.

    Hit f10 to save and restart, plug in that bootable USB media and BAM, you've now got a computer working the way it should like almost every other single computer out there!

  2. How do I restore my Acer computer if it will not boot into Windows?
    Use the following steps to start the system recovery:

    Restart the computer.
    When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the left Alt, and the F10 keys.
    If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
    After the Acer eRecovery Management application has loaded, select your restore type.
    Read the notice, and then click Next when you are ready.
    Click Next to begin the restore process. The restore can take anywhere from 10 minutes up to an hour.
    Once the restore is complete your computer will load Windows and start installing your drivers and software. Your computer may reboot several times during this process. After everything is complete your computer will be like it was when you first purchased it.

    If the steps above do not work, you will need to use recovery media to restore your system. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase a set online.
