Windows 7: Instal probs on Acer Aspire AOA150 (XP)

Instal probs on Acer Aspire AOA150 (XP)

Hi y'all,
Please forgive me if this has been covered, but I couldn't find any help in "search".

My wife let our brother-in-law install Win7 on her Acer Aspire One that had XP on it without checking to see if it was "approved" for Win7 by Acer.

Now, we cannot get it to boot with either the Win7 or the Acer recovery disks.

Please Help?

Thanks from a newbie!
