Can I install a different operating system other than what shipped on the computer?
Acer can provide support for your system using the Operating system that we shipped on the computer. You can install a different operating system if you wish. If you choose to install a different operating system, please be advised of the following:
Acer will not be able to troubleshoot any issues you have while installing or using another operating system.
Acer will not be able to provide driver support for operating systems that are not shipped with the system.
All drivers Acer offers are posted at http://www.acer.com. If the driver you are looking for is not posted, then Acer is unable to provide it.
If the computer requires repair, Acer may require you to reload the factory installed operating system, or Acer may reload the factory installed operating system, as necessary.
