Hello I just installed Windows 8 M1 (6.1.7850.0.winmain_win8m1.100922-1508_x86fre_client-enterprise_en-us.iso) on an Acer Aspire One that I have in addition to my HP and successfully activated it with Build_7850_Activator.exe Version 0.9.2.0 .
The problem is the blank wallpaper desktop and a non Aero theme that keeps coming back every restart. This was happening with Windows 8 from the beginning of the installation and did not go away after activation. This problem was NOT present when Windows 7 was installed on the machine. And the wallpaper and Aero themes are available and work properly until each reboot of the system.
Is there a way to make this go away and fix this issue?
P.S.: I was pleasantly surprised that Windows 8 M1 is fully functioning with close to no lag on maximum visual settings on the Aspire One with only 512 Mb of RAM.

Good to hear that.
I installed b7850 on an AthlonXP with 768 MB of RAM (DDR) and it's working satisfactorily. However, I'd like to see how it performs with a newer build with more working features like Aero Colorization.
