Question about Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook PC
When i turn on computer sometimes it boots up from windows xp and goes into acer arcade deluxe allthough my laptop has vista this gets rather annoying after a while any ideas how to stop it booting to xp instead of vista what it should do have seen several forums with same problem
I have the same laptop, there is 2 EISA on the hard drive an 10GB partion and an 3.5 GB partion, one of theses is the XP partition and the other in the D2D recovery parition, hard drive progames on the hiren's boot cd would work for deleteing both the parititions.
TVista will work without the EISA partitions, but make back up disks before you attepmt this.

Take it back to store. basically a hidden, but unremovable partition is causing the xp bootup. It happened to me aswell. They will probably give you a replacement as it is an unfixable problem. Even with new hard drive didnt fix it. Sorry about that.

Tips for a great answer:
Download and run a program called hitman pro, here is a link to download:
During boot-up keep pressing F8 this should give you safe mode options, choose "SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING" once your have got into windows install hitman pro and use the free trial by registering the product online. Rin the software and remove any found viruses. Re-boot the computer and go into Windows as normal all viruses should be removed.
