Wyse – X90cw 11.6″ LED Netbook – Intel Atom Z520 1.33 GHz – X90cw

Secure mobile computing. Without compromise.

The sleek Wyse X90cw mobile thin client features the benefits of other Wyse virtual clients, but in a form factor ideal for the mobile worker. Because the Wyse X90cw mobile thin client has no hard drives and no server-side data stored on the device, these devices are highly secure. That means that mobile workers no longer have to worry as much about exposure of sensitive data to insecure environments. As all data is stored and accessed remotely, the risk of data loss through stolen or mislaid laptops is eliminated.

Edubuntu, Linux Terminal Server and thin clients

How can you get this all to work without resorting to magic or hiring a magician? LTSP, the Linux Terminal Server Project is a free software project intended to make the setup easy. The clients configure via DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and download a minimal GNU/Linux operating system from the server using TFTP (Tiny File Transfer Protocol). The GNU/Linux operating system for the client boots and uses a file system on the server and the memory of the client to do everything. The initial network boot can be done by a ROM (Read Only Memory) resident program on the client. Most PCs since 1998 have this capability built into the BIOS if there is a Network Interface Controller (NIC) built into the motherboard. The BIOS setup may mention PXE, Pre-Execution Environment or network in the booting section. Others can incorporate a boot loader in a socket on the NIC into the BIOS of the PC, or boot from a floppy, USB device, hard drive or CD.

:: Thinstation – a light, full-featured Linux thin client OS ::

Thinstation is mainly intended for schoolroom, office, company or department use, but can be used at home (eg. for a silent PC in the bedroom that ‘runs’ XP on your workstation in the back room).

Whilst Thinstation is based on Linux, users may actually never see Linux at all. If you decide to connect directly to a Microsoft Windows, Citrix or Unix server, the user will feel that they are running directly on the server. But, you can also have a local Desktop interface (with a local Browser & other tools).

Installing on top of an already running desktop system

You need to set up one static network interface where you will attach the thin clients, install two packages and run one command.

Configure your spare interface for the thin clients to have the IP (and make sure it is up and running). If you can’t get the new GNOME network manager to work you can always install the older, simpler version of network manager by going to the “add/remove” window and searching “network”. Make sure to search “all available packages” and “apply” the changes. You will find the new network manager under settings -> network. Then follow the instructions below.

sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone openssh-server

Now create your Thin Client environment on the server with.

sudo ltsp-build-client

Install Windows 7 On Acer Aspire One

5. Next insert your Windows7 DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive (Double-click computer icon to know). In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).

In case, if you don’t have Windows 7 DVD and have just ISO, you need to use a free software named Virtual Clone Drive. Download Virtual Clone Drive, then use the Virtual Drive letter as you DVD drive letter after mounting the Windows 7 DVD image. You can also your WinRAR software to extract the Windows 7 ISO file to desktop.

How To Install Windows 7 On Acer Aspire One Netbook

Posted May 4, 2009 – 8:38 pm in: Windows 7 Tweaks



The much awaited Windows 7 RC has come out with added features such as the Windows XP Mode (XPM). Though Windows 7 Beta was very stable for primary use, many users hesitated to install it. But with Windows 7 RC, you can now install Windows 7 on your primary machines including Netbooks.

Installing Windows 7 on a Netbook isn’t as easy as installing on Laptops or desktops that come with in-built DVD drive. Since we can’t use DVD media to install on Netbook, we need to use an USB (Pen drive or Flash drive) to make it happen. IntoWindows has already covered how to install Windows 7 from USB/Pen drive in the past.

This guide is exclusively for Acer Aspire One Netbook users, who like to install the brand new Windows 7 on their Acer Aspire One.


1. Windows 7 DVD or ISO

2. A USB Drive with 2.5+ GB (4GB)

3. Windows Vista or windows 7 running machine to create bootable USB stick.

4. Lastly, your Acer Aspire One with 100% charged battery or connected to power supply.
