I have an Aspire M5-581TG. It came with Windows 8. Three times when I've started it up it says it's someting wrong with the windows installation. Same thing happened all three times, throwing the repair screen in my face and after several of hours (even days) it installes Windows 8 again.
Well, after 9 hours of repairing screen the third time I decided to upgrade my Windows 8 installation to Windows 7. Followed some tips from this forum and I got started with the installation (Windows 7 Professional 64Bit SP1).
Here's where the problems start. It is all so slow. Installation takes a good 10 hours. Just booting Windows is an hour. I've read about others that have gotten this problem but never seen any solution. It does not get any better when I install the drivers (installing drivers take hours as well). Anyone know anything about this problem?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
