This will completely erase the illegal copy you have installed leaving your system with no OS until the new legal install is done installing.

If not then where did it come from?

By saving it you are clicking F10 to Save and Exit and then it should ask you to click Y to confirm.
Then what is suppose to happen the system completely reboots and at the second black post screen it ask you to push any key to boot to cdrom.
Once you push that key then the cdrom takes over and you are presented with the XP setup screens.

Yep you need a full version to completely format and do a fresh install.
hahaha.. upgrade.... lol im guessing im a retard and have to get the full version first lol
I should have made that clear earlier. I apologize for that mistake.
What OS is presently on it?
would my acer travelmate 7720 be able to install window 7

He can not upgrade to 7 from that, has to have a full version.

HFCG is correct you will need a full version of XP Professional and not the upgrade version.
Firstly as he said it won't upgrade and secondly as you have seen the upgrade is not a bootable disk.
That is why you keep getting the choose between setup and the other version.
Sorry I was running a little behind on that and should have caught it sooner.

The drivers are listed.
However, as you cannot verifiy your exact installation on Microsoft Upgrade Advisor, as you cannot get online with the Travelmate for the Microsoft analysis to run on your Acer. I recommend you go to the Acer site and check your actual computer against the SNID
