Both of these answers aren't right. I have successfully installed Windows 7-64 bit. Make sure you upgrade the ram to at least 4 gb, from there make sure you have a legitimate copy of Windows 7. as long as you follow the directions you should have no problem. good luck!

OK, I encountered this problem where it would reboot and reboot during the installation, until I realized that I was choosing to install from scratch every time when the disc was inserted.

When it asks to reboot, remove the disc from the drive to allow it to install regularly.

Does this make sense?

Unless you are trying to install the 64bit version of Windows 7, it is not compatible with a uefi boot option - this has to be switched in the bios - F2 to access your bios, then look under boot options (I don't have the specific menu for that laptop) what you want is to enable legacy boot options.

Here is some information - select legacy boot options

How to fix no boot device on emachines e442 for free

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

I have formatted the boot partition (winXP Prof pre -installed) and installed Windows 7 and after BIOs the screen goes blank

Hi pratimpal
You should have directly upgraded to W7 instead of formatting . Try reinstalling Windows 7 on the same partition , it should work . Otherwise , back up all data on an external device , format entire drive while installing W7 and create new partitions afterwards with

It sounds as though the wrong BIOS has been installed or when downloading the correct BIOS there was a problem with the file and it is corrupt.
Apart from removing the BIOS chip and fitting a programmed one, there is not a lot else you can do except speak to Acer and see if they can help.

Ok, I presume you are using a parallel printer, what you have to do, is go into the BIOS, SETUP, and find the Printer Port, LPT1, and set the port to bi-directional, or SPP, now save, and reboot. Now reinstall again, and it should work. ( It may just work anyway, after reboot, that may be worth a try first)
