Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

I it possible to uninstal Linux OS and instal Windows XP to the Aspire One ?

Answers :

Yes you can install XP on that netbook.
Now because there is no optical drive in that netbook you will need an external CD/DVD drive connected to the netbook and an XP install CD.

You can get the Windows drivers from Acer here >>>>>>>


Just look under the netbook for the correct model number, select netbook, then Acer One and click on your model to download the drivers.

Yes you can just put the Win Xp CD in the drive and when you start your computer, let the CD boot it, and delete all your partitions, the use left over space to create Partition and format using NT File System, DON'T QUICK format, it will not take if you do.... then make sure you get all the drivers you need that Windows doesn't provide.
\015\012Before starting, write down all sound card info, wireless card info, ect, this way if you need drivers you can go the manufacturers site and get them.....
