Why are you trying to use "home basic" if you are running premium.
You should have either a restore dvd or backup instalation partition on your hdd fro Acer. If not you can buy a restore disk from Acer for a small fee.
If you installed Vista yourself from media that was not supplied by Acer you would also need all the drivers.
If you are trying to use someone elses Vista dvd to install on your Acer, you will have nothing but trouble, including activation.
As all required drivers would be on the Acer restore dvd.
