Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Change operating system on Acer Aspire One from Linux to Windows

\015 I purchased an Acer Aspire One on Ebay with Linux on it & would like to change to Windows XP however it is in Spanish which I did not realize when I bid on it. Since I do not know how to read Spanish I do not know how to remove Linux to install Windows XP. Can anyone help me?\015

Answers :

I would suggest that you get a good Technician to do this : Change your keyboard to an English Keyboard first (If its not English), then let the Technician help you with changing the boot sequence to boot from CDROM (he should be able to find his way to the place if your BIOS is not written in English...through experience). thereafter, let him boot use a Windows CD (English of course) to boot from CDROM, and then install it for you. Then you can also download your necessary drivers from www.laptopdrivers.net.
That should solve the problem...because I've actually used a spanish IBM Desktop before also...lol, very long time though, and that was the method I used to change it to WindowsMe back then.
You can as well try out all these methods if you know how to find your way through it.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!
