    Upgrade Assistant Tool
    Yes you need Windows installed. I suppose you could follow this tutorial
    Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums
    And don't enter a product key at setup, and then promptly upgrade to 8.

    Even the ACER UPGRADE ASSISTANT TOOL doesnt hElP.
    After following all steps same error appears again.

    & that tool just downloaded AHCI & WAN drivers.

    is it possible to load AHCI driver & BIOS at the installation screen of 8 ?
    Can this hElP me out ?

    As you can delete & make partition, your SATA controller driver in loading.


    Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
