I have an acer aspire AST180 UA381B and I need the system restore disks but they do not carry them anymore. What can I do?


I would suggest you install Linux Mint 10, a free operating system.

Without the restore disks,you would have to buy a new Windows CD. Have a friend burn an ISO image of Linux Mint. Just go to www.linuxmint.com, and there are lots of helpful tips there on how to install. Linux Mint has a similar feel to Windows, so it should be good!

Had dual boot with linux, lose my XP. I have the 5 cd recovery disk, but I can not install my XP back.


  • Hello charlieri_1, this happens often when installing 'new' OS, especially when creating a "Dual Boot." What you will have to do is a "Clean Install" starting from scratch; unfortunately! You will have to use the "Recovery Disk" to install Windows XP, first! Next, after you have restore the XP [OS]; then you will install the more "Updated" OS, [Linux] "This is just the Operating System way of order; oldest first, latest last, to properly install the OS. Hope this helps you, thanks paul7of9."

Problem installing OS in a newly assembled PC


Try installing first the windows xp.Make two apartments and install the Xp on the one.The other one format it,boot with the linux cd and try to install it to the empty apartment.Be sure that your system supports the linux kernel because some of the CPU brands don't support the linux OS;S.

Good Luck

How to clean reinstall Windows XP and drivers on Acer Aspire SA20 AcerPower


Put XP CD in. Reboot. It'll load drivers and ask you on where to install OS. Delete ALL partitions on had drive, so if let say you have 80GB hard drive, your unpartitioned space ~79GB.
