To be honest, I'm not sure what you have now on the CD ... each utility has it's own boot, which might be different, but both might work off the same boot - not sure.
I'll come back to that after reading more of your posts. We might have to use the utilities to sort things out.
I can burn it again on two different cd's thats no problem. but this is whats on the cd.
You put the ISO on the CD and not the contents of the ISO. It's not a priority at the moment.
What OS is on your neighbors PC - Win8 and Win10 have native burning software
Right click one ISO in file explorer
If you look on the CD and there is just an ISO - something's not quite right. Table the utility CD project for now.
Put a new blank CD in the drive
Right click the other ISO
Pick Burn image
let it do it's job - the CD will be ejected - label it
You can do that at your leisure ... I'll probably be off the forum the rest of the night
Two things I'd like to see in Command Prompt before using the utility disks:
Using the drive letters in your lis dis shot
1) A listing of the Acer partition
(prompt should now be C:\ >)
2) Boot code from the Acer partition (might not exist)
bcdedit /store C:\boot /enum
If you want to try something easy:
Sel vol 1
Then try to boot normally
Thought of one other thing you should do while you have the borrowed laptop.
Download the current Win10 ISO:
Then use that USB thumbdrive you wanted to use for the other utilities to make it usable on your machine.
Use "Rufus" to create Bootable Window 10 USB for Legacy BIOS and UEFIs
You already downloaded the ISO, so you can skip Step 1
Do steps 2-4 (Rufus prep) tehn follow
Step 7. To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive for Installing Windows 10 using Legacy BIOS (without UEFI)
I'm not sure just setting the Active flag will be enough, so you're getting the Win10 1607 install media in case it's needed to repair Windows.
