    Why are you concerned about why...this thread is about How...all your doing is judging and trolling, and by the way I can give you plenty of reasons, for starters the Windows 8 UI is designed for touchscreen computers, its extreamly annoying on a computer thats not a touchscreen, second there are programs that are not comaptible with windows 8, I had a customer bring a program designed for for def people that he paid allot of money for and couldnt use because of windows 8, even in compatibility mode. Then there's the simple matter of being used to pressing the start button to get a search but instead getting tiles...there's lots of reasons why people would want to use windows 8...no one here asked if windows 8 is better and no one here asked to compare them...I'm uncertain why it is your on this thread at all with this completely off topic nonsense

After I press any key to continue it loads files and than stops at the windows 7 load up screen and does not load. Can someone help me with this? I'm so frustrated and confused I just don't understand. I also purchased online windows 7 ultimate and burnt the file to a cd. I also dont see a CSM mode ..

    Thats not going to work, there is no windows 7 drivers and the bios doesnt have csm, only way to do it is to get the modifed bios with the csm option that amohani posted earlier

    That is not correct, that latest offical BIOS does have CMS support and is working. But you are correct that the windows 7 drivers are not on the ACER page, but youy can get the the drivers posted in this thread and once installed you can use the hardware ID to find more current drivers.

    majicmazo it won't go any further than this,

    but this thread is about wanting to install windows 7 on a specific ACER Aspire computer. Which oddly enough i happen to actually have.. I"m not using it, but i have it..

    Now,

    1. this person can't install it.. they have been told to try modded bios, upgrade bios, try this try that.. apparently they have to do something "special" to install a version of windows that this ACER company did "NOT" INTEND to be on this SPECIFIC "603g" Computer..

    ok if you are clear on that.. and YOU are CLEAR on the rules of this forum,
    that maybe installing windows 7 on a Acer Computer isn't exactly what Acer intended as quoted here:

    called them and they blatantly refused to give it out and said Microsoft forbids any downgrading on the Aspire XC-603G along with the instalation of Non-Windows products.
    now this will have to be followed up and confirmed, but if it's true, then Microsoft "forbids" it and what this post are asking for in this thread is illegal no?

    - Now i could care less what you do with you Acer Aspire, I am not going to call the microsoft police.. i truly don't care what you do with your "ACER Aspire" computer but seriously think about the trouble you are going to go through trying to install a modified bios then trying to find drivers for windows 7 which ACER didn't make, and all that just to have windows 7 on a cheap computer??

    hey, do what you want it's not my system, but this is why i posted about "how" windows 8 is just windows 7 but better.. (well, atleast now that it has been patched.. ha.)

    and if the users who knowingly bought an Acer Aspire computer with windows 8 on it would just accept that they bought a computer from a company that for whatever reason doesn't want windows 7 naturally on it.. i dont know why and don't care.. but thats why i didn't buy the acer in my home, (another family member did) It's just another computer for family to use.. (my family doesn't care if it's windows 7 or 8) so now you see why there is just a cheap acer aspire 603g computer in the house..

    Once you've got a Start menu like Classic Shell and configured it how you want it you just ignore the metro part. After a week of using W8.1 I think it is alright and actually faster than W7.

    I don't appreciate y'all calling this a cheap computer. To some of you, it may be cheap. But, to some of us it's not. If you want a cheap computer, then go buy an eMachines or a Compaq.

    I've just bought a "cheap" Acer Aspire ES1-512 and do you know what? Love it ...solid as a rock. . The components in most off-the-shelf PCs are pretty much of a muchness quality-wise between them unless you buy proper high-end.
