    Did anyone successful install Windows 7 on this notebook? I make Win7 UEFI instalation USB, but I still cannot install Win7. Any idea? It seems that Acer blocked Win7?!

    It works with update/change in BIOS

     

    1. Download the file E1-510BIOS.Zip from the below FTP site

       User name – [edited to comply with guidelines]

       Password - [edited to comply with guidelines]

       Folder name – E1-510BIOS

    2. Make the pen drive ready by formatting with Fat-32 file system

    3. Extract the file E1-510BIOS.zip to the USB pen drive, which will create a bootable pendrive.

    4. Connect the pen drive to E1-510 notebook where the BIOS have to be updated.

    5. Ensure that the notebook is plugged with the AC adapter and the battery is also having the charge of 40%.

    6. Press F12 and power on the notebook to select the Boot option.

    7. Select USB Boot and press enter, Notebook will boot from the USB Pen drive with the command prompt window.

    8. Type C:\ which will be the root of the Thumb drive.

    9. Type Z5WE3207W.exe which will start updating the BIOS.

    10. Follow the steps displayed in the screen.

    11. After completing the BIOS update the Notebook will take 1 minute to power on.

    12. Press F2 and get into the BIOS setup.

    13. In the BOOT Menu there will be the option for UEFI / Legacy mode

    14. To load Windows 7 change to legacy mode.

    Acer-Blayn has posted additional information here: http://community.acer.com/t5/Notebooks-Netbooks/Aspire-E1-510-Windwos-7/m-p/235060#M38693

     

    As Blayn mentions, there appears to be hardware limitations to installing Windows 7. Acer does not specifically block software from being installed.

    Thank you very much for all  your help and information ...

    @Acer-Cory: Glad to hear that Acer did not block Win7 from installing... Smiley Happy

    I was follow this tutorial (hxxp://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/15458-uefi-bootable-usb-flash-drive-create-windows.html) and make UEFI bootable USB drive with integrated Win7 x64 installation. I regulary see USB drive, and Win7 start with installation. BUT, when instalation try to load DISK.SYS file, install fails.

    Do you have any solutions for this problem. Many users just still want to use Win7. With similar "trick", I successfully install Win7x64 in UEFI mode.

    Thanks in advanced.
