    need help

    Hello guys,

    i have today buy a Acer emachine E730G, It comes preinstalled with Windows 7. But i didnt get any drivers cds from the shop. So i checked it on main Acer site

    Please let me knnow if it possible for me if i can install Windows XP, because i am not 100% sure that it will work with it. here is the link to the driver page http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html

    Also is it possible to make partitions on this windows 7 without formatting it, if yes, then plz tell me the software for it, Because it comed only with a single partiton i.e. c drive

    Thank you

    Usman

    Which version of Windows 7 is it? I think it has to be W7 Professional and up before you can run WindowsXP in XPMode and that's only if your hardware supports virtualization.

    You can run this from M$ to check the virtualization part:

    Hi,

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium installed on my laptop and virtualization means i run Windows XP inside Windows 7? and yes i have runned the tool and it says that "This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization"

    Also i want to disable unnecessary services and other gadgets to save battery power.

    Thanks

    If you have Windows 7, why on earth would you want to use XP? Windows 7 is by far superior to XP on every single level (including performance).
