The bios has nothing to do with the hard drive. I honestly can't think of why your discs won't work, it's pretty straightforward...
This is why I don't like Acer: the quality just isn't there.

perhaps the harddrive is formatted incorectly. with the acer bios your harddrive needs to be in fat rather than ntfs. this might prevent the bios to reckognize the acer recovery disks, because in order for them to work they need to be used in a computer with an acrer bios

Acer Aspire 5102WMLi
Windows Vista Ultimate x64
AMD Turion 64 x2 TL50 (1.6 GHz, 512KB L2 cache)
ATI Radeon Xpress 1100
120GB 4200rpm PATA HDD
1GB DDR2 (support dual-channel)
