yes it will, it will also install drivers for the hardware that the dell computer had, so you might not have the right drivers. once you get in running use device manager to see which drivers need updating and get those from the internet.

Probably not as the recovery disk are from Dell and are designed for your Dell computer. However, your Acer should have a recovery partition that you should be able to access as one of your boot options unless your hard drive is what crashed.
I tried to use WinXP recovery CD's from my HP laptop on my in-law's Compaq desktop and it would not work although the computers were built by the same company.
