I have Acer aspire 5742 model. It has operating system of Linpus I want to remove it and install windows 7 and Linux os. Please give instructions to do that chirani


You don't have to do anything to remove it actually. If you just format the disk it will be removed (for ever though) so just install the right on it don't even have to boot in Linpus.

Making your laptop Dual boot(that is the term for having two operating systems on a computer) with windows and Linux is a little tricky though.

Basically the whole problem is that windows will wipe your linux if you are not careful and will wipe your boot partition for sure (Windows 7 might not - haven't tried it).

So All you have to do is install Windows. While partitining the disk just take enough space for it and leave enough for the windows - you can wipe the whole disk if you want to. The Linux will need from 4 - 12+ GB of installation space (maybe less if it's live cd and you won't keep files there).
After you have installed your Windows. Just install your favorite Linux distribution in the space left.
If you have any other questions mainly to the Linux installation, I'll be pleased to help you.

This acer as no recovery cd and it shows eror 17 and a black screen behind. just wont boot up at all


You will need a windows cd to do the reformat.

Simply borrow one from a friend if possible. Just make sure it is the same version of windows that you have (ie vista basic, vista pro, etc)

If this solution has helped you, please take the time to rate me.

Cant get into the network center on my acer aspire 1 ,


If this is an aspire One with linpus lite linux,

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.

The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.

The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.

You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.

My aspire one linux edition powered off during D2D recovery!


Download Unetbootin on your windows machine and use it to load the recovery disk on to a usb drive. plug the usb into the AA1 and boot. While it's booting hit the f12 key this will bring up boot choices. Select the usb drive and away you go. And please remember to have it plugged in. Or ask around and borrow a portable CD-Rom. During boot you will see the screen ask you to select f12 to select a boot option.

Need Support for Acer emachine e520-2496 Linpus Linux


I bought one 5 months ago. The e520-2496 has no pre-installed software hence the low price. my included dvd didn't do anything either. I bought a Linux Fedora 10 installation DVD from www.osdisc.com for 5 bucks. this made it very easy the dvd was recognized immediately and has self expanatory instructions. Or go to www.fedoraproject.org and download it for free and burn it to a dvd. If you hold down the Ctrl key with the DVD in it should load it. Or check www.linpus.com but it is no help. I eventually installed linpus desktop from thier website and have a dual boot with Linpus and Fedora 10. The Linpus is no good with no wi-fi or support I do not recommend it. The Fedora 10 has excellent wi-fi and tons of support, forums, and updates. Or gooogle "linux OS" and choose from dozens of free or cheap Linux systems. If you go with Fedora 10 just make sure you buy a 64 bit version. The e520 has a 64 bit celeron M processor. P.S. don't mess around when your in root if you don't know what your doing and, always type in "exit" when done. I am new to this also but learning fast. hope this helps.

Acer aspire one netbook won't completely start


if your linux is corrupt which is a possiblity, you would need to go into recovery mode and try to fix your installation, however if you have a system disc that came with the machine you could always try to re-install the OS most linux distro's will allow you to select your old OS and import the settings from it during an install. However I would only do this if you cant recover your installation.
----------
DId some research, if you are using linpus linux which comes with the ONE, then it is a fedora based OS, which means you should be able to import your settings from the prior installation during a fresh installation of it.

I hope this helps, since linpus is pretty new I am going to do some more reading on it.

Aspire One runs too slow for Win program


Honestly, you may want to not run Windows.

Linux has all the necessary programs and utilities to run Windows programs. You just have to find them. Goto: www.download.com and click on the tab for Linux Search there.

OR

Just wipe the entire harddrive with a Windows Disc Master install. This option will begin when you place the windows disc in the CD Drive and do a boot up from the CD drive. It will ask you if you want to format harddrive and say yes to that. After windows is properly installed, reboot again, see if all the ports, keyboard, mouse usb's jacks work properly, speakers, etc. If not goto the Aspire website and goto support and download all the drivers for your model.

Thanks,

Mark
