Closed Acer laptop won't recognise bootable usb Tags: Acer Laptops USB Last response: February 23, 2013 6:24 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share tmcgoo February 11, 2013 10:27:58 PM Hi there, I just bought an Acer Aspire S5 391. Now I need to reinstall windows 7 from my USB flash drive. I know the USB works as I have successfully used in on another laptop. The laptop doesnt seem to recognise the USB. USB HDD is set as number one in boot bios. I enabled the F12 boot menu, and when booting the USB doesnt appear in that menu either. Another funny thing is that my friend is trying to put windows 7 on another acer laptop and he has the same problem. Is this an Acer thing with certain laptops of theirs, or certain USB's? Thanks for any help! More about : acer laptop recognise bootable usb Best solution tmcgoo February 11, 2013 11:38:51 PM Would it being a USB 3.0 port have anything to do with it?
