Hi. You can purchase the operating system disc at microsoft. If the computer is still under warranty, acer or the store where you purchased the computer should provide the recovery disk.

Why do companies more like Windows XP instead of other systems?

I think peopel are used to Windows XP's peration mode and interface's functions. Or maybe is Windows XP's good compatibility. In my opnion, security is also the reason. With it I think the possibility of meeting password lost for Windows XP is low.

I had set HDD password in my Acer Aspire One AO532H-2527 Atom N450 1.66GHz 1GB 160GB 10.1" Mini Laptop, it is frozen and I require to install new operating system, how to remove HDD password?

If you initialize the disc with the new OS disc it should format with no problem. The password is only to encrypt the information, not to prevent access the disc.

You can try booting in the safemode to see whether the default administrator account is enabled. If it is there then log on to the administrator account and changed the password for the account.

If the administrator account is not enabled then you should have the Vista disc to do system restore. Boot the computer from the Windows VIsta disc.. when you see the setup screen look for Repair your computer link at the left bottom corner. Click that follow the instruction to do system restore.

IF you dont have the vista disc call you Acer support to find how to boot in to Win RE

Good luck
