    Also I have deleted all the windows 8 files of the HD I did a clean resore using another machine. I cant access a dos menu before the error.
    I cant find anything in Bios that will help either.

    Try Legacy BIOS Boot Mode if UEFI Boot Mode not work.

    Also make sure Secure Boot is disabled.

    SOLUTION

    Enabling the F12 function:

    1.Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key, or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.
    2.Press the right arrow key to select Main.
    3.Use the arrow keys to navigate to F12 Boot Menu, and press ENTER.
    4.Select Enabled, and press ENTER.
    5.Press the F10 key to save changes and restart the system.

    Bootable media from previous versions of Windows may not be recognized in Windows 8. You can change the Secure Boot setting and it should recognize the bootable device.

    Use the following steps to change Secure Boot:

    1.Completely shut down your computer.
    2.Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press Delete to enter the BIOS.
    3.Use the right arrow key to select Authentication.
    4.With Secure Boot highlighted, press Enter and then the down arrow to select Disabled.
    5.Use the right arrow key to select Boot Options.
    6.With Launch CSM highlighted, press Enter and use the down arrow to select Always.
    7.Press Enter.
    8.Press the F10 key to save changes and restart the system

    Acer Aspire manual

    Launch CSM - Never/Always

    Information only while "Secure Boot" as Enabled in "Authentication". Default "Never" for native UEFI OS(Win8 x64) and "Always" for legacy OS(Win7/XP), base on POR requirement.
