I'm new to the site, thank you for any feedback.

I have a acer one netbook that I'm trying to intall Ubuntu on. I had to remove the hard drive and format it with a "sata to usb adaptor" with my other computer, due to a virus.

When I put the formatted hardrive back into the netbook and turn it on it just says "Missing Bootmgr, hit ctrl alt del to restart"

So I downloaded Ubuntu and the universal usb installer and attempted to extract the iso to an external harddrive I have, so I can plug it into my netbook and install Ubuntu from the hard drive. I problem is once I plug the hard drive into the netbook theres no way to tell it to boot the usb drive.

Is there anyway to put ms-dos or something on the netbook hard drive so I can tell it to boot? Or another solution?

When you turn on he laptop before the missing mbr txt there will be a chance to press esc, f2 etc. You will only have a second or so, so it might take a few restarts. Then just tell to boot from usb.
