Upon start up, I get Acer screen with F2 setup option, and F12 option. I am able to enter setup, where I do see the hdd listed. I can also get into boot order, in which 1st option is hdd. I have tried the ALT/F10 to get into the recovery management tool, but it will not work. I am pretty sure I can hear the hdd spinning, which I have also removed and replaced in case of bad connection.
thanks for any help

I can only see the problem in your OS. If you don't have a CD drive, you'll have to get the operating system on a USB device and plug it in. Upon that, install the OS onto your hard drive.
