i can install  just  fine i think from the 10.10 install disk.  but  when i  go back to boot from disk it gets  a mbr error.  this  is  because  acer puts a restore section on  the  disk   unfortunately  i deleted this section. when i try  to  reinstall  xp  from  a disk  i  have laying  around  from  an  old  computer (xp pro) it  gets  to  the  34 min remaining mark and shuts down  ?????   any ideas ???
