There are Win7 drivers as well as BIOS update on Acer support page for your model: Acer Support - Drivers & Support Documents which with a Core2Duo should ably run Win7.

Jacee's suggestion to run Upgrade Advisor from XP is a good one as it may tell you what is conflicting or limiting Win7 install.

Wiping the HD can also remove the conflicts from XP.

I gave you numerous steps in Post #10 to try to get the install to complete.

Please respond as to exactly which you tried, and if any remain to be tried.

What exactly makes you think the display driver is failing it's install as you PM'd me? Is there something more than the distortion?

Try using this method to access Device manager during install to uninstall the driver which you think is hanging the install: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation

It will default to Standard VGA driver which you can then update when Win7 starts.
