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

  • asjay1224asjay1224 Posts: 4Member

    Its a Freedos model, when the windows 8 setup has completed, it will restart and says "PC has ran into problem and needed to restart" "IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

  • Joshua188Joshua188 Posts: 523Member

    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.

  • asjay1224asjay1224 Posts: 4Member

    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..

  • Joshua188Joshua188 Posts: 523Member

    hmm do the units come with windows 7 from factory?

  • HK53THK53T Posts: 767Member

    From what I've read if it doesn't ship with Windows 8, you're not going to be able to upgrade it to the v2.x BIOS, only the v1.x.

  • asjay1224asjay1224 Posts: 4Member
    It comes with Linpus Linux from factory, I've called acer support and they asked to upgrade the bios of the machine but it seems that this laptop bios can't be upgraded to v2.09. Only can install windows 7..
  • Joshua188Joshua188 Posts: 523Member

    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

    Hi guys

     

    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.

     

    Regards,

  • slnsln Posts: 6Member

    Hi ,

     

              I also got this problem. Because this model bios for w7 and if we want to install w8 it must me UEFI bios. I tried to upgrade the bios but i can't upgrade.

  • PholisterPholister Posts: 9Member

    I can confirm that anisin84's solution described here
    http://community.acer.com/t5/Acer-Notebooks-Netbooks/Cannot-Install-windows-8-on-Brand-newAO-725/m-p/6155#M1645
    solves the problem. It has nothing to do with the BIOS. The error is caused by an incompatibility of the Atheros Wifi card installed in the affected Acer models with the default driver that comes with Windows 8. Removing the card during install, updating the Atheros W-Lan driver via a download from another computer once Windows 8 is running, then replacing the card and rebooting twice is the fix.

     

    [edited to comply with guidelines]

     

    Note, however, that opening your device may void your warranty. Make sure you know what you are doing!

  • TecAnthonyGaruTecAnthonyGaru Posts: 1Member

    I solve that problem, you have to disable the atheros driver from regedit. Entering cmd mode recovery windows 8. Is the only solution, rather than descaonectar wireless card and warranty void.

    If you want my help can contact me: garupumper@hotmail.com

    Not very good my English but I do what I can. Smiley Happy

  • wolfstainwolfstain Posts: 1Member

    Can u tell me how to disable the atheros driver please?

  • s3_bordzs3_bordz Posts: 23Member

    ...I already encountered that problem and i successfully solve by loading first the wifi driver before installing...How to load?

     

    In winows 8 intallation there is and option there to load the driver first but be sure that the driver cd is in the CDROM DRIVE and locate those folder where the wifi driver is located and if you don't have installation driver cd just download it from the acer website and put it on a pendrive...

     

    I wish it could help...

  • TobyvillarealTobyvillareal Posts: 1Member

    Here's my steps to resolve that

     

    Step 1: Download first the Wifi Drivers and AHCI Drivers to your USB (Not the Application File)

    Step 2: After you download drivers, You must restart your laptop and boot your Windows 8 installation disc

    Step 3: Select the Custom Installation

    Step 4: In Custom Installation,Select the Drive Options(Advance) on the bottom and

    Step 5: Click the Load Drivers 

    Step 5: Click the Browse and go to the Driver folder and click next

    Step 6: Format your Drive that you want to install Windows 8 and click next

     

    And Your Done
