    Yes, this is possible to change the operating from Linpus Linux Lite to Windows XP. The only thing you have to do is just go for the uninstallation of the Linpus Linux Lite from your system and then install the Windows XP on your system. This is not a difficult job of changing the operating system from your Acer Aspire One laptop. I hope you will be able to this try the process I have told to you.

    • Type p at the command prompt, and then press ENTER to display partition information. The first item listed is hard disk 1, partition 1 information, and the second item listed is hard disk 1, partition 2 information.
    • Type d at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. You are then prompted for the partition number you want to delete. Type 1, and then press ENTER to delete partition number 1. Repeat this step until all the partitions have been deleted.
    • Type w, and then press ENTER to write this information to the partition table. Some error messages may be generated as information is written to the partition table, but they should not be significant at this point because the next step is to restart the computer and then install the new operating system.
