Where did you get the Win7 installation media? What is the ISO source and how was it burned to disk or stick exactly?

Work through the steps here to Troubleshoot Windows 7 Installation Failures.

Follow the steps exactly with absolute attention to detail and what is requested that you report back. We do not tolerate nonsense here.

What version of WIn7 came with that PC? Is there a readable Product Key on the COA sticker affixed to the Acer? What version is printed on it?

I seriously doubt whether Ultimate came with the PC, and if you torrented Ultimate then it is likely cracked unless you can prove you bought it. We do not help with piracy here and even the mention of it can get you banned permanently.

So your best bet if you want our help and can't prove you own Ultimate is to reinstall the licensed version.
