Can you help me please :(

I am going out of my mind, my husband formatted our Acer Netbook windows 7 starter to put another windows program on it. I created a bootable usb on my laptop and whenever I put it in the Acer it will not boot, Bios is set to boot from the usb. Am I missing something? I pressed alt f10 as well and nothing happens.

any comments on the drivers' support? I own a 8GB SSD version of AcerAspireOne (AOA-110), that comes with Linpus linux distribution. Slow, small, but it has everyhting working (including webcam). My hesitation towards installing Win7 was not related to "how to install from USB stick" (i already re-installed Linpus couple of times from external CDROM), but how well is Acer Aspire supported in Win7?

Windows7 appears to have a lot more drivers then previous versions. All drivers were discovered on the Acer netbook, including the web cam.
yep...my friend did the same thing for putting WindowsUltimate on my Atom dual core Asus Netbook...except did it with a SD card...similar concept same results...and a much better OS then Starter...

though had to go back and install the drivers for the netbook...which he already had on a memory card.

there's the iso tool for the iso's purchased from microsoft online store, now there is this for your own retail copy :)

why not just put the disc in and boot from that?  i have never seen one of these netbooks,  but is there something im missing about this?

Netbooks do not have a cd-rom drive.

 That's a bit more complicated than using this store.microsoft.com/Help/ISO-Tool. It's made by Microsoft, and fully supported by them.
