I have an Acer Aspire One, with Windows XP home, and would like to upgrade the OS to either Vista or Windows 7. I also happen to have an unused, in the box Windows 7 that I purchased when Windows 7 was first introduced and Microsoft had a special price on buying the OS.
 
Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.
 
The specs are: Aspire One D250-1389
Serial number: LUS670B228929085471601
 
Thank you

smink, it may be good for you to edit your post & remove that serial number, that is personal information, The make/model is plenty enough info for us to go on.

 

There are Windows 7 32 bit drivers for your computer, so you can use the Windows 7 OS that you obtained on promo. Just follow the prompts & yours will be shown, Tried to like the direct page, but wasn't allowed to. Type "AOD250" in the Product Model search box & select Windows 7 from the drop down list. Oddly, they post XP 64 bit drivers but no Windows 7 64 bit ones, just 32 bit.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
