my old travelmate 2300 will not install win 7 32bit OS

I've been trying to do a clean install of Windows 7 32 bit moving from the old XP 32 bit.  The installation keeps hanging up after loading the disk.sys driver.  I've downloaded the BIOS and driver updates from the ACER support pages, but seems I already had the latest updates.  I've checked the internet and found a lot of people building their own systems having the same or similar problem, butr none of their remedies semem to work.  Any suggestions.

Please note that there are no Windows 7 drivers available for this unit.
