Yeah, I'm pretty sure i'm gonna have to take my notebook to Best Buy's Geek Squad or something for this but i thought i'd give this a shot first. I'm over here at my parent's desktop posting this lol. Anyways, i dont have any restore CD's for my Acer and i was wondering maybe if anyone knows a way other than going to Best Buy to "restore" my Win XP? At first, i put the CD with the Linare iso in to check it out, thinking they had a Live! mode like Linspire did. Apparently, they didn't. Then, NEVER INSTALLING ANYTHING, i rebooted my computer and the blank screen of death came up. I rebooted twice more and finally chose to "partition" the drives or whatever and installed Linare, thinking maybe i have dual OS now. After booting back up, it saids choose a OS to boot and Linare was the only one there.....somehow my WinXP got erased? I wouldn't have a problem using Linare but i can't connect to the internet via my Wi Fi. It needs a "direct cable" connection in order to have web access. Does anyone have an idea at least? I hate to have to go to Best Buy just so they can "re-install" Windows. Thnx.
Yeah, dont mess around with ur OS. It's a nightmare.
