    As far as I know this computer doesn't have a cd drive, so there are 2 ways of installing windows xp on to this.

    1. install it from a USB memory

    2. Remove the hard drive from the computer, plug it in to a desktop computer and move the windows xp setup files there.

    I will get you a guide just a moment,

    Another guide, this one goes with USB memory

    The USB cd drive method seems simpler, I suggest you try that. That guide was on the first link.

    The hard drive is the last option, and it will officially void your warranty but I did get my acer repaired even though I had taken it completely apart and then sent to acer repairs.

    let me know how it goes.
