    Hi, Windows 7 should activate no problem on it as it sounds like a newly released laptop so should have the new slic bios.

    No just press install and everything else is done by the installer of the loader.

    Hi Malik22

    I have the same laptop that I got this Xmas it does not activate Win7 as it has slic 2.0 bios and not slic 2.1, I modded my bios using Phoenix tool and worked perfect if you qualify for the FREE windows upgrade GET IT acer website does not have all the updated windows 7 drivers and apps and some of what they do have do not work properly eg: launch manager but the upgrade comes with all the apps and drivers on dvd if you use what drivers are on the acer site you will have lots of problems.

    I spent a long time making a driver and apps disc because of the problems I encountered trying to upgrade from my 6930g from vista to win7 even with the upgrade dvd if you do a clean install of Win7 it does NOT install all the required programs.

    I am talking about acer specific drivers & apps if you do an upgrade from vista to win7 with the upgrade dvd's all will work fine but if you do a clean install like you are thinking of doing it will not install everything you need, the upgrade dvd wizard only offers to install about 8 or 10 of the 30 or so apps/drivers that are required to enable the 6930g to function as it does with the original vista install.

    The phoenix tool is here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...eplace-SLIC-in-Phoenix-Insyde-Dell-EFI-BIOSes

    make sure you understand the risks involved by using this tool and flashing your bios.

    I had a 6530, took me all day to get drivers, and most acer programs do not work, so listen to exorcist. Also update your bios drivers, etc before u start, and i like the clean install.
