  • Good Morning Mohsen,


    Thank you for visiting our forum today :-). As Dan mentioned your best option is to contact Acer Technical Support and request the Recovery Media for your model computer.  Below I have contact information for you.  Since the telephone number and websites are not maintained by Microsoft we cannot make any warranty as to their validity.

  • Hello Parm_79,

    Changing the value in the oobe timer registry key is meant to be used with Volume Licensing editions of XP.

    Your best option IMO is to contact Acer to get the right Recovery Disc for your computer and use it to cleanly install XP.
