    Hi, I think the settings on the netbook for the dvd were for the wrong region, as I bought it in Abu Dhabi. Now I have reset the region to europe, it seems to work

To reinstall you need an external DVDROM drive and run directly the windows 7 installer as boot up disk. Because it need to run alone as boot up disk and surely it will not run when you just copy the files to external HDD.

Where can i find linux wireless driver for acer aspire one aoa110 aw?


Ouch, it appears that Linux is no longer being supported by Acer. You could try the Windows XP driver (it's worth a try) http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
If that doesn't work you might have to download the latest LINUX and reinstall it from scratch.

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 ...
