Acer Laptop OS Upgrade
Posted on 2011-09-26
Hi Guys, after 7 years I have got a new Acer Laptop Aspire Ethos 8950G which came with Windows 7 Home Premium, 2X 0.5Tb 5200 rpm HDD , 8Gb Ram. I am upgrading to 2X 750gb 7200Rpm, 16gb Ram, Win 7 Ultimate ( Full Retail Pack).
Now its the first time I am about to use windows 7. So is there any way i can upgrade the OS with out doing a full reinstall? There are drivers and Acer eRecovery Management program on the current os. I am told if I install Win 7 Ultimate I will lose the Acer Programs and then I will have to take the laptop to Acer support for them to get it working again. Since I live 800Kms from Acer support I wanted to try other things before I take the laptop to acer.
Note: I have not yet done anything to the laptop!
