    I finally got the built in keyboard to work just had to manually update windows 7 to recognize it. Now I am trying to figure out how to install my graphics drivers from both intel and nvidia then get my wireless network going. this Laptop was designed specifically to only work for windows 10 but there should be a way to modify the drivers to be compatible with windows 7.

    hey, morning. i did the steps accordingly but couldn't get past the starting windows screen. at first it instantly shows a black screen after the ' starting windows '. then after i tried booting it in safe mode and the other options and this time the animation appears but still freezes after that. Would love to be able to install win7 on my laptop. It it because of my BIOS? its UEFI only.

    -Manufacturer: ACER
    -Model: Acer nitro 5 (an515-43)
    -Bios rev: 5.0
    -Bios Type: Insyde
    -Bios version : v1.12
    -AHCI

    Has anyone tried this with Windows Vista? I want to set up a multi-boot of Vista, 7, 8.1, 10, and 11 on an Acer Aspire A315-21, but to do so, I need UEFI mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello. I am experiencing this same issue and am struggling with it. Installing this special driver did not succeed.

    I'm fixing to give up and just use a Virtual Machine, but I would still like to figure out how to make this work because "Windows XI" is so bad that it nearly made me cry. At least "Windows X" still feels like a Windows machine...

    Could a baremetal hypervisor such as vmware esx work? Or some kind of minimal linux wrapper?

    I used this method about a year or so ago and everything went fine. But now after performing all the steps, when the system tries to boot windows for the first time I get a 'windows boot manager screen' displaying:

    File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD
    Status: 0xc0000034
    Info: the windows boot configuration data file is missing required information

    Any ideas on what is going wrong / how to fix it?
