If you want to Restore the software installation the Aspire One originally came with - this will delete the entire existing contents of the hard drive, if that applies.....
How to recover an Acer Aspire One
How to make a bootable USB flash drive with the Recovery DVD contents on it if you have the Recovery DVD that originally came with the Aspire One.
(The operating system on the hard drive does NOT need to be working properly.)
How to use that prepared USB flash drive to reload the original software installation on the hard drive.
If you don't have that Recovery DVD
- you can can probably order it from the Acer web site
Pick your country.
I picked United States.
I chose this Top Answer
How do I reinstall the Operating System on my computer?
Click on the blue link for: Acer Recovery Media Order Form in this:
"If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form."
The Alt-F10 procedure may not work with your model.
If that DVD is not available from Acer, one of these web sites may have it:
"i,have same model and have issues
Netbook has linpus linux"....
"...acer aspire one d270..."
You don't necessarily have the same specific Aspire One model as senna1960 has, and if it originally had Linpus Linux Lite on it, it's even more likely your specific model is not the same.
senna1960 saying he or she has an Aspire One without specifying the specific model is like saying only that a car is a Chevy Impala.
What year, what engine ?
You DO NOT necessarily have to re-load the operating system or the original brand name system software installation from scratch to fix whatever problems you're having in that operating system.. That should be a LAST RESORT ! There are lots of places on the web where you can find out how to fix your problems without having to do that.
(I know very little about any version of Linux.)
There is no such specific model as a Aspire One D720, but there is the AOD720 model.
Downloads and Support Documents
Product Family: Netbook
Product Line: Aspire One

NOTE - the Generic User Guide is not available from there - see the info about getting it from the support downloads for the AOD260 model in response 9.
If your model originally had Windows on it and that's the operating system version you want to go back to, see the first part of this post.
If it DID NOT originally have Windows on it, and you want to install just Windows on it, see the first part of response 1, response 2, and the latter part of response 9
If your model originally came with Linpus Linux Lite on it and you want to restore that software installation
- if you don't have the recovery DVD that originally came with your model, you can probably buy one - see the first part of this post.
