    win 8 not installing on ACER laptop tried everything


    Hi i have ACER ASPIRE v5-431 laptop.

    But when i try to install Windows 8, it just doesnt install.
    it gives me following error :
    Click image for larger version

    i Tried everything.
    i performed a Clean install {deleted all partitions & installed on a new partition}
    i even used ACER just UPGRADE ASSISTANT.

    But still all in vain

    The OS doesnt install.

    i tried freaking 15 times just trying to install that OS but still it just doesnt install.

    Can anyone pls help me out how can i install this OS ?

    Have you tried the MS Win8 Upgrade Assistant?

    So, the MS Win8 Upgrade Assistant raised no issues about installing on your machine at all???
