  1. Hello,

    Today I purchased an ACER Aspire Notebook with Vista Home Basic pre-instaaled. Does anyone know if you can format the HD and install XP Pro? Will all of the hardware still function? Thanks.

    the hardware should perform better on xp actually since its years old and has plenty of up to date drivers, unlike vista.
