I just wanted to know, if Windows 7 HP can be downloaded onto an Asus Aspire One netbook? Or is it too big a file? Would someone please let me know? Thank you.

Windows 7 Home Premium requires a minimum of 16GB hard drive space for the 32-bit version, and 20GB for the 64-bit version. Given that the Aspire comes with a 16GB SSD maximum, you'd have better luck creating a bootable USB, installing Windows 7 on the USB and then booting the netbook from that. Aspires that came with Windows pre-installed all had Windows Starter, so that should tell you right there that there are limitations in what Windows 7 version(s) the netbook can handle.

There have been some very rare models that came with tiny slowpoke SSD's in those Aspire one's (avoid them like the plague) , but the millions that were sold all had 120 gig, 160 gig and 250 gig regular hard drives.

Which processor do you have?

N270?

N450?

Something else?

Most of the N270 Atoms came with XP, while most of the N450's came with Windows 7, but either way around, they are very similar in power and both can handle 7, but you have to understand and accept that it will never be a fast machine.

You need patience to own one of those single core 10 inch Acer Aspire netbooks.


All is well in Paradise.
