I have read every comment and the only thing comes to my mind is that your ISO is corrupt. Check the hash/sda and compare to the real one!
That could be the problem!!

Not sure this even works, but I think that there may be a hardware conflict with your laptop. So I'd say take your hard drive out, plug it into a computer and install Windows 8 on it then put the hard drive back in the laptop.
I've never done that so I have no idea if an OS installation is specific to a certain computers hardware/processor ID or something.
Just an idea. Maybe someone else could say if that would actually work or not.

Download memtest86
http://www.memtest86.com/

Burn to CD and boot from it. Run the memory diagnostic and let us know if you get any RAM errors.

So we can rule out corruption problems. Id RAM is faulty, anything you download is going to end up corrupted.

Next logical step is to perform full surface scan of your primary hard disk and check for bad sectors.

[img]http://i50.tinypic.com/4t7rxe.jpg[/img]

i Tried everything.
i performed a Clean install {deleted all partitions & installed on a new partition}
i even used ACER just UPGRADE ASSISTANT.

But still all in vain

The OS doesnt install.

i tried freaking 15 times just trying to install that OS but still it just doesnt install.

Can anyone pls help me out how can i install this OS ?

Have you gone to Acers site and downloaded their windows 8 "preparation" tool to run first. it can in fact do the whole install if you have the iso/install files, or you can just run it and at the end when it gets to the actual install go out of it, run the MS installer, and after Win8 installs run the acer tool again, to install all drivers.

their tool will prepare your computer for win8, including running Bios updates if necessary, which it did on my V3

I haven't had any problems with Acer support, not at work when it's faster for me to handle service cases with them directly instead through our own service desk. or when I sent in my new V3 for dead usb ports, unusually for a support the guy figured out I knew what I was talking about right away and just fixed a return right away.

Try what everyone else is saying first. My 2 hunches are: 1st. if nothing else works then there may be a piece of hardware that Windows 8 needs that your PC doesn't have. 2nd. It may be an OEM BIOS thing which means that you may have to call the PC manufacturer of your PC or MB maker and see if they have a specific BIOS that will allow you to install Windows 8. Some OEMs want you to buy through them and some OEMs do this to force you to buy another computer in hopes you buy from them again. I have a friend that has the same problem and never pursued and just kept Windows 7. Lastly, I would if you have an OEM partition; then Id keep that partition for a safety net.

What part of "its probably your memory" is hard to understand. How many times are people going to have to mention it before you download memtest86

Well I have an Acer Aspire 5333. Windows 8 installs just fine so I don't know why it isn't installing for you. Maybe one part that's inside your computer is missing that Windows 8 requires. So looks like you're gonna have to find the part that Windows 8 needs.

His BIOS is at the latest version. He has no need to update it. I need to update mine though, I'm at 1.09 and I need to upgrade it to 1.10 and then I'll be at the latest version. I do know one thing, Acer's Download servers suck. On every single download I would get a 5mb's per second but with Acer's Download Servers, It's only downloading at 40-50 kb's a second.

Look at the Acer site for the model in question, there's several Bios' versions out there. so he might have the "latest" and not the "right" one, especially since the are different ones for windows 8, including UEFI bios'.

Well I think the latest BIOS, 1.10 is a UEFI based bios.

Usually a hardware issue or a driver issue in my experience (or boot sector virus).

I've found using their other FTP servers in other countries actually download faster than the normal US server. It used to be the same way with Realtek when downloading HD Audio Codecs.

If you have another windows on your machine, you can look into the drive, win8 on installation starts a folder at the root, BT~ something (couldn't remember because I removed it after install); in it there's a panther folder and something like setup log and setuperr, which are text files - maybe you could get a hint there.

If you seek help from MS, they will ask you to send over the panther folder, whoch also includes you machine specs, and try to diagnose what had went wrong.

THANK U EVERYONE.

i Finally managed to install Win 8 on my Laptop.
i Still dont know what the error was or how the error was created.

i Ran the Setup in wiNdows 7 of windows 8.
Then it asked to keep Everything or nothing, i selected Everything.
& then the process went smoothly.

& finally i have Win 8 running without any error.
i also installed all the drivers of Win8

i Dint require any tool whatsoever to do this.

But i still dont understand few things
After instAlling , when i try to install it once again from BIOS on a new drive it once again gives me the same error.
What is it that is causing this problems, still.
That it can only be fixed by UPGRADING & not by ClEAN install ???

PLS Guyz shed some liGht & help

Just in case someone comes along with a similar issue, sees this and attempt it....

OS installations don't work this way. At least not as simple as that. When you install Windows, the installation process loads drivers and files for your specific hardware. It was a good suggestion, just not one that actually works.
