If the machine's new (and it appears to be from Acer's drivers site):

...then I'd suspect it came with Win7. XP Mode may be used, if you have Win7 Professional/Ultimate on it, and possibly VirtualPC if you don't:

Tks T-R-A, eventually got WinXP to boot by setting BIOS ' on-board SATA to 'native IDE', then install Acer's 'Win 7" audio driver & NIC driver which both work in WinXP. VGA driver, PCI & Multi-media driver didn't work, but that didn't affect anything.
