    Hi there! I pst this topic to know if anybody there who have tried to format their acer one 160gb. A friend of mine just boought his own 10" acer one and tried to format it and partition into 2 drives. It works and I was planning to do the same, his OS now is windows xp sp3 ultimate and the background looks like windows vista.

    I used BootIt NG ("BING") from Terabyte Unlimited (

    You can boot BING from a floppy or CD normally, and then use it to do stuff like create partitions, resize partitions, "slide" partitions, etc.

    Since the Aspire Ones don't have either floppy or CD drive, you can:

    - Boot BING from an external USB floppy drive
    - Boot BING from an external CD/DVD drive
    - Boot BING from a USB stick that is able to emulate a USB floppy drive

    You can normally convert a FAT32 partition (no such thing as a FAT32 file) to an NTFS partition using the "convert" command, e.g., see:

    Hope that that helps.


    P.S. I am not associated with Terabyte. I am just a user...
