Unhappy Acer EeePC 4g- Start-up error

Sorry about the dodgy quality of the photo...
I don't really get on with Linux and I was trying to take it off (nearly a year ago now)and put on either Windows 7 or XP. I now need to use the netbook but I always get this error and can't progress any further. I have tried factory reset but I get similar messages. If anyone could shed any light on this it would be great

Can you adjust the BIOS to boot from a USB stick?
