Make the old original HDD an external drive? Or port it to a pendrive?
you'll likely have to find and download an ISO of the windows starter installer, or use another one
There's a Acer service centre downtown. Maybe they'll give me a copy.
Anyone tried Windows CE on a netbook yet?
It should work...and if it works, it could be a viable alternative to Win7 Starter.
How is that nowadays? If you can install programs/apps on it it could be viable.
Maybe with WinCE 8.0 there will be windows store support.
The current version, 7.0 doesn't have that and as far as I know, software support is limited. You get what already is installed. Probably microsoft has additional software packages to add features.
I pretty much removed it as an option for my toshiba. There is no driver support whatsoever.
EDIT: I'll probably install Ubuntu. Even though it has been years since I last used a linux-based OS.
Might be a bit late in mentioning.
I bought 2 (maybe more) a Netbook (Acer Aspire One 522) and it is still going strong. Upgraded the system to a 500Gb HDD with 2GB 1066 Ram and installed Win 7 HP and it runs perfectly fine. Currently have it hooked up to the Main room TV networked to my desktop to play movies and anime when i am in the living room.
I have a samsung n150 its so sluggish. I thought about adding more ram (or exchanging the 1gb stick for a 2gb one) but I doubt it will help much...
Going from 1GB to 2GB makes a huge difference, especially if you are running Win Vista/7/8
my netbook changed to a beast when i formatted with 7 (aligning the SSD) and went to 2GB.
I have an X61s, which is kind-of like a pre-netbook. Do I count?
