I installed Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire One 10" netbook using a flash drive. I love 7 and all, but it eats up battery life like crazy. I only get about an hour and a half lifespan, while XP gave me a solid three hours. I can't seem to get this to work correctly though. It always gives me a different reason for not being able to install xp from whatever usb device.
Anyone have experience with this?

Are you sure installing Windows 7 caused XP to uninstall? Usually you can have both OSs and select which one you want from the boot menu.
I formatted the hard drive, totally removing all previous partitions.
