    Ok so I downloaded the acer recovery iso and burned it to a dvd. It was the Linpus ISO. I'm running XP. I partition the drive to 45gb. When I go to the recovery setup and select a partition it only gives me the choice of the whole disc. How can I install to the other partition?

    You will need to image your xp install (use something like acronis trueimage) and save the image file sumwhere then use recovery to wipe drive then use the dualboot tutorial by Me and aresby ( its in this forum) to get xp back. You should be able to then restore image
