I had the same problem. I solved it with no-using complicated softwares, only i red a lot of tutorials about re-editing a XP CD-ROM. I put inside the drivers that i found in acer.com website, then i modified a lot of lines-codes in some .ini files into I386 folder.
Now i have the WIN XP PROFESSIONAL (SP2) CDROM, on my own. right for Acer Extensa 5220.
If you want, i can do it for you, and send it by my SERVER, from where you will be able to download the CD (in ISO format) and burn it into only 1 CD ROM. it's bootable.
Let me know if you would like
