Acer Aspire E1-510/Linpus Linux Issues


Hi All..Just purchased brand new Acer Aspire E1-510 preloaded with Linpus Linux. it says Linpus Linux Live CD Edition v9.2 b131017I. I get stuck at root@localhost. After trying series of changes in BIOS but would not work e.g: 1.changed boot priority to load WIN7 from CD-wouldn't work.
2.prioritized USB with Iso image created via LiLi but wouldn't work
3. HDD password frozen
4.enabled and disabled secure boot to load other OS but would not work
5. can't change UEFI mode in BIOS to legacy to allow me boot CD ROM
6.in command mode tried mounting cdrom- it mounts but i cant copy file...I dont even know the command to copy file.
Please urgent help would be highly valued.

Thanks.
