Update: You can now download the drivers from Acer’s support site.

A few weeks ago AspireOneUser uploaded a series of drivers that you could use to get Windows XP up and running on an Acer Aspire One Laptop. Now it looks like you don’t have to rely on these unofficial drivers anymore, since Acer has uploaded its own drivers to its site.

At the moment, Acer is only selling a Linux version of the laptop. While you can certainly install Windows XP yourself, using a USB DVD-ROM drive or a USB flash drive (if you modify these installation instructions), there’s a good chance that some things won’t work properly without the proper drivers. So I’d recommend downloading and installing the audio, card reader, chipset, LAN, WLAN, display, touchpad, and other drivers if you plan to install Windows on an Aspire One that came with Linux preloaded.
