    Thank you but no instruction manual came with it and there is no info on the acer website that is the first place I visited, but thank you again for trying. I now have it working through trial and error.

Acer Aspire M5640 came with Vista but want to go to XP. How do we do this? Acer Aspire M5640 E540A 3Gb DDR2 memory 500Gb Sata HDD GForce 80600 GS Vista Home Premium What to instead have XP Home Full on...


I would suggest going with XP Pro first off but what you need to do is get into your bios and change the boot priority to the cdrive as the first device then harddrive as second. Put your XP disc in and reboot the computer after a few moments you should see press any key to install ...... this will start you off with the install from here on follow onscreen instructions.

Onsce at windows desktop you will need to get a ton of drivers and this is were the fun comes in. Use support.intel.com for all intel devices inside the system. After that you will have to goto your device manager and see what still needs to be installed. Now you will have to hunt down the manufacures websites and go to there support page and get needed drivers.
