Default Acer Laptop With No BIOS?

Ok worst came to worst and now I must ask: how do I boot an OS image from a USB through the BIOS? OR: Is there a way to reformat the drive and do all of it all over again without going through the BIOS?

Hello,

You need to go into your BIOS settings and set your USB drive as the primary boot device. Then restart the computer and boot into the USB drive. This is the same for any type of drive, when booting from media after the power on sequence.

Also, is this USB drive made bootable (i.e. specially set up to be able to boot and install the OS from, the USB drive)...?
