Hi folks,

I have just doubled the HDD on this laptop and was thinking about installing Win2K3 on it. Has anyone done this before on this laptop? I guess the biggest potential issue would be the drivers - does anyone know if the drivers provided by Acer will work on Win2K3?

Any hints/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I can just install it and see, but any early warnings may save me the time Smile

Cheers,
Dany.

To answer my own question: No, you can't! The ATI video driver does not agree with Win 2K3! Bugger!!
