    I put in the license key that I have for Acer and it rejects it. How do I do about getting it licensed again? I only have 10 days. TIA

    Your new slic is a different manufacturer than the old one, you need to install the certificate that matches the new slic.

    slmgr -ilc [filename.xrm-ms]

    You have to use the acer certificate that matches the SLIC2.1. It's a different one.
    I've moved your thread.:)
    Additionally you must have installed at least Vista SP1.
