I have a acer aspire am3470G-UW10P I got from a friend, with both the hard drives wiped. I want to install linux and windows 7. When I boot it up with my live linux USB, everything is fine, however, it refuses to detect a OS on any of the hard drives. At first I assumed that this was an issue with the hard drives, but I have tried using different hard drives I know work. This leads me to assume its something in the bios. I have drained the CMOS, but no luck there. When it boots up, it goes past the bios screen and says: ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed
What can I do? Would trying to flash the bios help? How can I do this without being able to access the OS to install the updates in the first place?
