I have just spent the last 5 hours trying to resolve a failed windows 8 Installation on an Acer W500 with a 32Gb SSD I went down the avenue of a clean install using a bootable USB and selecting to keep nothing, all went well until it decided that there was not enough disc space 2Gb short and this is where the whole process stopped . Have I misinterpreted what the down load can actually achieve, is it not capable of a clean installation formatting the drive and creating a partion as windows 7 what can do ?.
I now cannot even boot up my original Windows 7 cannot navigate the suggested options the only thing I can get into is the Bios, Can I format my SSD and reboot with the USB downloaded Windows 8 .Or will I have to use my windows 7 recovery discs and start all over again? Any body know How I can get into dos format the SSD and boot from the USB ?
