hello asjay1224, so the V5 shipped with windows 7 HP and you upgraded the unit to windows 8 correct?

ok, so that error generally means there is a software issue at this point. I would recomend reloading the OEM OS and starting over fresh.

I've tried on 2 new units but encountered the same problem, I fresh installed windows 8 for 5 times already, but still facing same problem, upgrading bios also don't work..

I have not seen an Acer V5 ship with linpus installed. From the factory i Belive it should have windows 7 HP 64bit. Anyways what the last post is try the BIOS version should be 1.X not 2.X

There is a possibility the unit is released with Linux. There are EMEA units, especially in the Middle East that are released with Linpus/Linux. You can only update the bios to 1.x. 2.x is only for UEFI bios only.
