    You should be trying everything in each mode. Try in UEFI if you have been using legacy all this time.

    I know this has been tedious to say the least.

    HOLY BABY JESUS!

    I tried and it didn't work.. And then I went and switched back from Legacy to UEFI, and IT DID LOAD WINDOWS FILES

    And then, it got here, and got stuck

    I restarted the lap top, and the same things happened...

    The bar "Loading Windows Files" Loads nicely and quickly, and then I end up on this screen, and it gets stuck

    It's stuck, but the lap top is making "noise", you know, the fan turning extra fast, or the hard disc working noise, or the cd-rom noise...

    Ok, it's not just me, others have had this issue too apparently..

    Look at this link:

    Acer e1 510 linux model boot problem - Page 8 - Acer Community

    And look at the 6th response from the top, the guy says:

    "My issue is exact the same - red bar at the top of the screen at the beginning of the Windows part of the Win 7 x64 setup process."

    I'm reading to see if someone, anyone mentioned a solution to get past this...

    We're SO CLOSE you guys, So Close!

    Ok, here's what I'll try, I'll leave the UEFI option...

    And I'll reformat my USB with a DIFFERENT ISO of Windows 7, using a program someone gave me yesterday, called "WiNToBootic", and we'll see what happens...

    Hey, at least I got to see the Windows Logo for the first time on my machine

    I'm thinking more and more we should just go straight to Windows 8 ... I'll be happy to provide you with one of my unused keys given all the strife you have been through..

    Yea, I'm running out of ideas here. That link justme gave shows lots of problems.
