hi all,\n\ni bought this AA1 a few days ago, first thing i did was to get rid off of all the software i don't need and load the ones i need and also downloaded and installed XP respective updates. one of those updates was related to works 8 that comes already installed on my AA1 and I don't know if this have anything to do but now I can't uninstall works 8 which by the way i don't need it anymore because i have ms office. i tried uninstalling office first, but didn't work. office is not installed currently on my AA1. \n\nthis is the second AA1 i have on my hands, first one was my cousin's and did the exact same thing and i was able to uninstall work 8. \n\nif i tried to uninstall, this is the message i got: \n\n[b]"the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package WORKS8.MSI in the box below." \n\nUse source: \nc:\acernb\office\cd2\[/b] \n\nand there are three buttons: OK, CANCEL and BROWSE. \n\nI hit cancel and then i got this one: \n\n[b]Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product microsoft works. the windows installer cannot continue[/b]. \n\nso, as you can tell, i'm stuck there and don't know what to do .... any ideas??? i thought of maybe creating a recovery disc but this is not possible to do, like the regular acer laptops, maybe with a recovery disc i could find that .MSI file, i just don't know.\n\ni hope i don't have to load everything back to factory default...... :(\n\nPlease, help.
