Took an infected stock Acer Aspire 4710 drive that came direct off the 4710 model, and tried it out in my Dell Precision desktop (bought for about $20usd), The Acer 4710 cost me $130, at a pawn shop, the desktop had motherboard and case, that's it, I supplied the PSU and put in a P4 HT in place of the PentiumD normally found, as it was lacking. Can't recall the type graphics card, right now it's ATI Radeon 9200 I believe, PCI slot 128MB version. Have PCI Express though. Vista Home Basic is show on my NEC/Mitsu display, and obviously, it's not a laptop screen (18 inch on average for this model. The drive was wiped to format to XP, but it was used for PS3 spare instead. I upgraded to 160GB on the Acer. One of the short lived normal boots, typically it would crash, after a few moments, and give you BSOD message. In Safe mode it worked fine. Not much you could do in SAFE mode, however, but USB was working, I had access to test with, but the BIOS was and remains locked due to no reset method the user can find! LAME, ACER! Anyway, this is the one true OS boot on this particular Dell because it takes issue booting any other OS outside of Win95! It had crashes with Linux as well
