It's very easy. You can switch SATA mode from AHCI to IDE (in Bios) and install XP, or leave AHCI mode, with 'nLite' integrate AHCI drivers into XP installatin files, burn and install... Drivers are not problem, just search in google, even ePower tools are working.

You have to change a setting in the bios and then it will work its a hard drive seting you change it to ide but its also very hard to find the xp drivers for everything else once you install it. i just did it and the lan driver doesnt even work

Seems that it's a SATA drive and the drivers are not included in XP.
There are some tools available to include these drivers into the XP CD.
Search the net for 'xp-iso-builder' or 'n-Lite'.

This is not necessary if your laptop's got a floppy drive (i don't think so). Then the SATA drivers can easily be loaded by pressing F6 when booting from the XP CD.

Where can i get a copy of the operating system for an acer aspire 4720z vista


Its normally stored on the hard drive of the PC in the recover partition of the hard disk drive.

If you've formatted the hard drive without burning a recovery disk, you can try contacting ACER via their web site and ask for assistance. You could buy a copy of Window Vista. But if you decided you need to buy a new operating system buy Windows 7 instead, its much better than Vista.

If however you don't want to buy an operating system and be legal. Then you can download and install one of the Linux based operating systems for free. I like Ubuntu best, but there are others.

Just google Linux or go straight for Ubuntu :- http://www.ubuntu.com/

I need more info, if I am right, your acer laptop model is Acer Aspire 4720z instead of 4270z. There are different audio drivers for different operating system, so please post back the name of the of the Operating System (with bit version i.e 32 bit or 64 bit) installed on your Laptop, otherwise I can't help you since we/I need to select the driver for the specific o.s.

If you wish or if you can give a try, follow this link (click here), open the link, click "Notebook" in the box provided, then in the next box follow up box, click "Aspire"then in the third box, scroll down and select "4720z", all the available drivers will be displayed on the next page, you'll need to select the operating system from that page.

Acer 4720z wi fi driver on xp Os


Hi There, since Acer do no release a wlan driver for Windows XP, you need to use the driver for Window Vista. If you do not have the driver for Windows Vista, you download it from here . After finish downloading, then un-zip the file. Now let's start to install the wlan drivers. Go to your "Start Menu", then "Settings", "Control Panel" then "System", system properties windows will be pop up. Then select "Hardware" tab, and then click on "Device Manager" button. You will then see "Device Manager" windows. Look for your "Network Adapter" and you will see your wlan network adapter with red cross mark.Right click your red crossed wlan adapter, then select "Update Driver"
You will prompted with "Hardware Update Wizard" then select on "No, not this time" radio button and click on "Next" button. On next windows, select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" radio button and then select "Next" buttons.
Then another window will pop up, then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install", then click on "Next" button. Then you will come to this windows "Select Network Adapter", you will see you existing network adapter that do not working, then select "Have Disk", and browse to the location where you have unzip the driver. Then Select the appropriate driver for your laptop. Acer Aspire laptop 4720z come in 3 wlan varian, Intel chipset, broadcom, and Atheros and I don't know which one is on your laptop. Just try one by one if you are not sure, it's only 3 to choose from.
Hope my solution could help you out.
