Why uninstall Windows® 7 on Acer® Veriton®
After installing Windows® 7 on your Acer Veriton Desktop, in case you face various upgrade problems, interface issues, and features that seem to have disappeared entirely, among many other complications, you may consider uninstalling the OS. In other cases, you may want to uninstall Windows® 7 because you are not comfortable with the new features. Also, you may want to revert back to the previously installed operating system, whether Windows Vista® or Windows® XP, or install any other OS of your choice for ease of use and understandability.
How to uninstall Windows® 7 on Acer® Veriton®
To uninstall Windows® 7 on your Acer® Veriton® desktop which did not have any other operating system installed on it previously, first, you have to create a backup and transfer the data to either a network location or a removable drive. Once this is done, insert the Windows® XP or Windows Vista® installation disc, and then install the operating system by simply following the steps suggested by the installer. Finally, after the installation is complete, you need to transfer the data from the removable media or network location to the new operating system.
One of the most important points to be kept in mind regarding Windows® 7 is that it can only be upgraded from Windows Vista® and not Windows® XP. If your desktop has Windows® XP pre-installed on it, or it has any other OS, in that case you have to go for a clean install of Windows® 7.
