Thank you
hi
well as I belive they have DVD \ CD rom in thier computer then you can use partition magic or Fdisk or Smart FDISK
all this you can find on Hiren Boot cd just download it and burn on a cd
boot from this cd
start Partition magic and everything will turn pink in a blank
afterward you can install system or whatever you want to do....
note: Hiren boot full of useful tools for everything.
otherwise you can you your xp be cd and start installing system and during the installing you will be prompted to create partition or format and this save time and download for you

Thank you, TIGERsHAKER 1

well.. first of all maybe this error comes up during installing xp because this copy of xp you are using does not support sata driver
and anyways it does not matter what did you use to burn the cd since it completed successfuly
beside me also doesnot support sata driver so your hard drive wont be readable for the cd thats why you get these errors
so now we have to look for xp copy for acer... I will look for it for you right now ..

i would recommend Ultraiso to burn the it on cd

Mediafire: http://www.mediafire.com/?wrmyyn2jyov

or any other method just burn it correctly

after this insert the cd in the cd rom
boot from cd and I guess you have to press F2 once black screen and ACER logo appears in the startup
then you change the boot sequence to make the CD-Rom as first boot and save changes
and boot from the cd and complete installation

Thank you
use the repair tool that is in the Windows install disc, it should get your OS back, and you could reformat and partition the drives if you install Windows agian (could lose data though)

Thank you
you need to use the original operating system disk and follow instructions, that disc will erase, format and make the partition for you, but later you will need install the drivers for the different component of you pc. network, display, bios, etc. etc. just go to the site of the manufacturer pc and search for drivers and software support.


good luck.
