Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
I want to get rid of the present Vista O.S. on
this ACER 5610Z Notebook computer....
Want an easy way to download the appropriate
drivers to use Win XP Professional.
If your currently able to surf the internet with your vista os id suggest downloading the drivers for windows xp from the manufacturer onto a usb storage device like a thumb drive or external hard drive(hdd).
after you have all the drivers you'll need have:
the windows xp disk.
1)before you restart the computer insert the windows xp disk into the cd-rom
2)resart the computer
3)when the computer starts to post press the appropriate hotkey to enter the bios(usually f1,f2 or delete key) it'll tell you on the splash screen.
4)check the boot order in the bios making sure the cdrom is the first boot device. if it is press f10 to save and let the computer boot.
5)on the upper left of the screen you'll see (boot from cd)press any key(hit a key quickly)
windows xp will then start loading on the computer.
6)windows will look for previous installations of operating systems and display them on the screen
7)click on the partition w/the current os (when you click the os will be highlighted)
8)xp will give you the choice to install delete or format the current partition
9)choose to delete the partition
after you delete the partition windows will show a matrix of the hard drive without partitions (RAW SPACE)
10)highlight the raw space

Im having the same problem with acer xp drivers not working or not being able to be found, i dual booted and i need the driver for the side buttons. Acer offers drivers from thier website but not all of them have xp drivers and little of them actually work. iv been searching for a long time and havent found them yet. i suggest using drivers from diffrent acer models to run them

All the xp drivers for the 5610z you need at http://mosswalks.blogspot.com/ these are the drivers I rounded up when I switched over to XP. My machine is much faster now.

Gemini14 your posted solution will NOT work. There is some sort of strange hardware incompatibility with windows XP on this notebook.
I posted about this issue here.
please reply to my thread if you can figure out a way to get XP installed on this notebook, thanks.
