    [FONT=Verdana]Which model of the Acer Aspire Netbooks do you have?

    Also how much memory and disk space do you have as well.

    Assuming this was purchased via the Amazon deal thread from late last year or early this year, you should have 1GB worth of RAM installed as well.

    Assuming your not going to dual boot Windows 7 with Linpus Lite, then your best best would be to backup all of your data files off of the netbook to external storage (i.e. USB memory stick, external USB hard disk, another computer, etc) and then do a fresh installation of Windows 7 onto your netbook (do you still have the restore CD/DVD in case you need to push back to Linpus Lite?).

    Listed below are a couple of links to guides on the Acer Aspire One User Community Forum but there is an assumption that you have access to a computer running with Windows to follow the steps but also a USB memory stick.

    Edit - Here's also a link to a thread on the same forum with regards to Windows 7 device driver support; it maybe already invalidated with Acer releasing updated device drivers but you might want to check it out as well, if you hit any snags along the way.
