I have an Acer Travelmate 8100 (8103WLMI) Model No. ZF1 and it came with Windows XP. Does anyone know if it supports Vista? I think I tried installing 32 bit Win 7 on it once but I vaguely recall it not working. I have a copy of XP and have been trying to activate it on this laptop and previously it has gone ok, after installing the drivers, but now I can't seem to get IE8 to work with windows update or windows activation program to connect, and the network diagnostic tool tells me I have no HTTP, HTTPS etc. even though IE8 partially works and Firefox works perfectly.

    I have since given up and installed Windows 7 Pro on it, the only problem seems to be the sound driver doesn't work in Windows 7.

    Try installing the XP sound driver in XP sp3 compatibility mode...
