Hi! I have the same problem as justme: I've bought an Acer Aspire with Linpus Linux. I've tried to install Linux Mint, as you said, but the laptop doesn't work without the USB flash drive. I've tried also to install Windows 8.1 from USB but the laptop doesn't recognize it (<No bootable device>). I am desperate and I really don't know what to do. I've read all your 28 pages, but I didn't find a solution.
I would be grateful if you could help me with some advice. I'll appreciate!
Oh, poor guy. It's a bi*#h, I know.
Well, it's been a long time, but from what I remember I had to change something in the BIOS before I could install Windows 8. I'm sure I mentioned it - I mentioned everything - in one of my previous responses.
Did you manage to fix it?
- Windows 7
- Computer type
