Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I have an acer aspire 3000 running xp home. I recently installed an xp professional which came with my pc and I thought it would go on any computer. Now the acer can't install any updates which I think is due to the xp pro. I want to reinstall the original discs that came with the acer but can't seem to. Is there any way I can do this without losing data on the acer or do I have to completely format the drive and start again.
I'm afraid, you can't install XP home over XP Pro; it could be done the other way around. you'll have to backup your important files then format your drive and restart from scratch.
if you have 2 partitionon in your HD e.g C: and D:
you can copy all your important files in the D:\ drive and just format and install XP home in the C:\ drive.
