If you want a free solution try Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10. There is a lot of information on this forum on how to set up your A9. It works OK but not as well as Win 7 (JMHO).

If you do not have a Win 7 disk you will need to purchase a full version or an OEM disk. Then you will need a small external DVD drive so you can run the install program from the disk.

Another possibility is to find a download of Win 7 on the web. I think this could be copied to a suitable USB flash drive. Then search for how to modify a file to make the install go as Win 7 Starter, that way you can use the product key on the bottom of your A9.

Good luck.
