2 - it does not have a cd ! This is not a linux or windows thing ! U can use a usb cdrom if u realy want to...
3 - u;ll need a usb stick bootable with dos OS on it and the kit for xp ... there is plenty of info on google... But i recomand useing the linux(faster, more stable ... prettyer :) )!

    i presume u can do this: copy the data from the cd on a usb stick, and make that stick bootable(u must do this in order to work), and so u can use it as if it is a cd in a cd-rom ...

    Probably the cd is generic and not just for u;re hardware...

    Note: i did not work with such a laptop, so i may be wrong ... but i doubt it ! What linux is on it ?!

How do i reset the password when i dont know the original pw?


A password is required to install anything on Linux, in order to prevent any malware or unauthorized users from doing harm. In order to install the program you wish, you will need to enter your password, which is the password you used to log in to Linux. I am assuming your account has sufficient privileges. If you set up an administrator, root, or su (superuser) password when you first booted up Linux, enter that password.

Non booting


If it don't boot and you get a curser then the hard drive lost its boot sector and you will have to run linux recovery cd, if it did not come with a cd then you have to call the manufacture to have the ship one out to you.

Windows on the acer aspire one 110-AB


I do not believe this ...the only way is if there is a dual boot system installed so when you boot it should prompt you to choose the op sys ya want to run ...the solution is as fallows...either you install the windows xp ...but I heard about problems with some notebooks that came with Linux cause the HDD is too small to support windows,,,( ex 2G...) and if you install it you will not have room for anything else ..if you dont want to mess with this my solution is .. web msn messenger ..so you will be able to use it without install it ...

I just got my acer aspire one with Linpus Linux OS I am not used to Linux so I changed my OS to Windows. After changing my OS, the wifi connection is lost and so with the audio. help me restore them....


Hey,

the drivers for all acer laptops are available at this page
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

from the aspire list, select the aspire one that matches your model, its probably on the bottom or on the top, look around the laptop, the drivers are all at the website.

You will need atleast Wireless drivers and audio drivers, maybe more.

Its all there.

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse
