Any joy? I have an R3610 and I'm in the same boat... tried all sorts of versions of Ubuntu, nvidia drivers and xbmc.... still stutters/tears.

apoligies if this is teh wrong place to ask. but ive just followed the guide and have my Revo with XBMC installed on an SD card and it seems to work.... apart from i dont know how to access my shared video folder which is on my windows 7 pc!
How do i go about setting up the shared areas correctly so that xbmc can access it?
edit : the aeon skin didnt seem to show up a password box, but the default skin did. I still cant access teh shares however. it only shows the name of my PC.
Remove hard disk? - Wcool - 2009-11-21 00:49
Does anyone know how to remove the hard disk? I want to boot from a USB key and don't need the hard disk.
I know how to open the Revo but I don't see any obvious way to remove the disk? Should I unscrew the 6 small screws on the disk (can't believe that?)
Any pointers greatly appreciated.

You have to remove the motherboard, there are the four motherboard screws plus you have to remove three screws around the fan. The screws to remove the drive are underneath the MB.
Here is the service manual someone else posted.

revouser forum has a thread on swapping out the drive.

Acer R1600 Atom w/ XBMC and Firefox ??? Anyone? - tpg_sr - 2009-11-21 17:11
While I realize that installing XBMC only provides GRUB (and I've done this install and it works perfectly and am IN LOVE with XBMC now), I'd like to install a Linux distro on first, then layer XBMC on top of it so that I get exit XBMC and get on line ... I cannot seem to find anything that works ... any suggestions appreciated ... and I apologize if this is the wrong forum.
ps: I tried an XP install first, and it works, but then my IR remote doesn't work ... and I don't want to go and buy an old media center XP license.

Memory upgrade FAILURE: 128x8 vs. 128x64 - terp4life2001 - 2009-11-22 00:29
I bought an Acer Aspire Revo 1600 as well as an additional 1GB RAM.
I cannot get Linux to boot with the additional RAM although the BIOS recognizes the new memory. Also, Linux's MemTest throws a lot of errors with the new RAM installed.
The only thing I notice on the RAM is that the original RAM is 128x8 and the new stick is 128x64.
The new RAM is: Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT12864AC800 - Retail
Here is a link to the RAM I purchased. Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong? Might the RAM be bad?
