Acer announces Aspire X1200 desktop PC for home entertainment - comments from readers
Press release, July 9; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 9 July 2008]

    I was able to install XP Pro to this system but having a hard time finding drivers. I changed the BIOS to boot as IDE rather than ACHI and it loaded XP without any issues, no blue screen. Now the search begins for drivers.

    I can't get the drivers to work for Vista 64-bit. I have an X1200, AMD 5000 with a DA078L boxer mobo.

    I have the Aspire X1200 but am not able to install XP in it. Please tell me the steps or send the SATA driver. My mail id is (loknath_504 at rediffmail dot com) thanks.

    I installed XP on this machine.

    Has anyone here been able to actually load XP Pro on this machine?

    Acer broke HDMI audio with a BIOS update. I believe systems are now shipping with this new BIOS, thus no functioning HDMI audio out of the box. Acer support is unaware of this problem and thus there is no fix, nor any sign of one on the way.

    After following the above.

    On the download driver page check out the "RAID Floppy Disk Install" PDF on the left-hand "Additional Info" bar for instructions on how to extract the files you need from the package.

    The GeForce 8200 is what Nvidia likes to call an mGPU which is just marketing for IGP chipset.

    Go to Download drivers on Nvidia's website.
    Product type: nForce.
    Series: 7.
    Product: 780a/750a.../GeForce 8

    Nvidia is for the graphics drivers. You need the AHCI drivers and they're not on Acer's website. Acer also does not provide any specifications on their website so you don't know what motherboard and what chipset you're using for the X1200.

    For Vista you should be able to install SCSI drivers off a USB drive. For XP you'll need to look into creating a "slipstream" installation CD using something like nLite - Google.

    Drivers should be available on Nvidia's website.

    I agree with Derrick. Cannot install XP; returns error STOP 0x0000007B. Cannot find SCSI drivers, and XP setup (using F6 to load additional) can't continue because it doesn't have a floppy drive. Maybe if I used a USB floppy, still no SCSI drivers.

    Vista Ultimate will not install. Tried four times now. Fails and reloads Vista Home. Aspire no help. No driver updates except an Enet update which won't load either.

    You can install Vista and download drivers from the Nvidia website for the VGA, and if you need to install XP please install SCSI drivers for the machine.

    Vista Drivers not available. Windows XP will not install in this machine. If you get this be sure you want the OS it comes with
