My grandmother just bought the Acer Aspire One Netbook, Intel Atom M450 1.66Ghz 1GB RAM 160GB Hard Drive & Windows 7 Starter. Now I noticed that you can't right click on the desktop and press Personalize and it does not have Aero. Will this system take Windows 7 Ultimate and run ok, or at least as good as it runs now, Yes I did the advisor and tells me I can run Ultimate, but that does not really say if it will run good, or as good as it is without Aero... Is there another way to install windows onto a netbook without a USB stick? *I started the install from a USB Hard Drive, and it rebooted and ran perfect. System seems to run pretty good, can always turn off Aero anyways. You can delete this thread now. Sorry about that.
