Windows 7: Win 7 Install Fails Home Pre (Can not install on this hardware)

Win 7 Install Fails Home Pre (Can not install on this hardware)

Hello all-

My friend has an old laptop laying around that was broken so I told him hey what the heck bring it over and I'll fool around with it. He brings it over and I get my good old external HD that I use YUMI to install windows with. This thing is going nuts beeps & boops the whole time; I figured out the built in keyboard is fried due to liquid damage at some point I yank it out, I connect my dell wired keyboard that I use for all my "projects" and start again. I wipe the laptops HD and start my install. It completes the install portion that is booted from my external then restarts into in windows to finish the install on its own HD. Makes it all the way to the end where the screen flickers like its adjust the resolution. Moments after that "Windows could not be installed on this computers hardware- please restart"

I check everywhere online and I find a tutorial on this site that explains how to enter device manager in safe mode while installing win 7 (which I didn't bookmark like a fool!) I find that it has a LIST of drivers not recognized (graphic card is one). I down loaded the drivers from Acers website but while restarting the Win 7 install I click i the load with drivers button and it says they aren't in driver format.

I'm lost- about the call this laptop broke, done, cooked. I pulled the laptop HD out and ran disk check from my Dell desktop it was fine. The liquid damage doesn't appear to have damaged the internals of the laptop, the dvd drive is right under where I found the damage to the keyboard. I tried a 64 bit at first then tried 32 bit neither makes a difference.

I wish I knew more about this thing- They made them with Intel & AMD
