    Thank you very much my friend, Fwadley, but unfortunately there is no Floppy Drive in this system.

    Any other way you can advise?

    What do you mean by the"computer comes on" do you mean when windows starts.

    I can go to the BIOS but changing the Boot order does not help. I have even tried to change the boot drives to CD ROM but even then it just starts windows and asks for network login username and password. login name is saved already and asks for password.



    This is what is annoying me. It looks like the system has been permanently locked into C Drive and network license for windows. IF you can give me tip on how to change that setting, that would be great help.

If you have windows 98 boot disk put that in, the firt thing you do is to go to f-disk and change the partions in it, then format c: drive. take out disk in A drive put in New windows XP CD and restart. the disk will run and install itself. and thats it. right now your partions are set to read only windows 95, 98, there are 2 options to choose from I belive the one you need is 32.

Can you downgrade from vista to xp on an acer t180?


Of course you can.
The only concern would be drivers, but all drivers that exist for Vista exist for XP as well. Just go to Acer's download page (link) and download all necessary drivers before you downgrade. (this is especially important for your Chipset and LAN drivers, so you have them handy when you reinstall.

The site is a little it confusing, but after you chose "Desktop -> Aspire -> Aspire T180", you will see a small drop-down menu, where you can choose your operating system and your language.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Acer Aspire T180 Missing Drivers


My problem was with the T180 was the VGA support under XP. Reinstalling the Chipset drivers fixed that - audio and ethernet still broken but I'm using a wireless adapter for networking and I have separate sound care for sound - but anyway the link is:

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html

I downloaded and installed chipset for XP 32 and it worked fine - presume the same is true for the Home Edition drivers.

I did try the pdf index suggested by a previous poster but I found all the links to XP drivers were broken.
