Acer Aspire One netbooks can have two types of boot menus: device boot menus and partition boot menus.
Normally, your netbook automatically displays the partition boot menu if your hard drive has multiple bootable partitions, but a problem with your master boot record can prevent that.
If you accidentally erase your MBR, you can restore it using the Windows installation medium.
Now, this is a very common problem with this netbook since it was released to the market with a defective BIOS software that can eventually fail and needs to be upgraded.
This problem is so common that the manufacturer decided to post the solution on the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) of the site. After that, find all the external screws of the netbook. You may need to remove some rubber legs as it conceals the rest of your screws. There are 3 latches that hold the keyboard in place.
