|Yes, it would remove the drivers because drivers for Linux will not work with XP - you should have clarified that before ditching Linux. |
Anyway, you need to check out the Acer website. As your machine came installed with Linux, you might not find Windows drivers immediately available, but if you start by putting in your exact model number (there are loads of them for the Aspire One) you may get lucky, otherwise you may need to do a bit of research & find out which is the comparable model that would have come with XP in the first place and download those.
