    Meaning you can't get into the BIOS? Pressing F2 repeatedly in boot gets to the BIOS in my ACER. Try F2, F8, F10, F11, F12, or DEL. Those are the most common BIOS keys.

    Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit (7 Ult, Vista & XP in V-Box)

    Funnily enough, I suffer from the same thing.

    My old Acer AS5735 LOVES the 32-bit CP, which it is currently running.

    However, every attempt to install the 32-bit RP met with the same issue that you have.

    Supposedly the CPU isn't 'compatible'.

    Although, strangely enough, the 64-bit RP installs and runs just fine....go figure.
