So what i have tried this time was i had the UEFI enable and just the secure boot disable,i logged on in to windows, i run the install from the cd end when the system asked me where to install the fresh copy of windows i run the command promt, as administrator, and the command clean all. NOTHING AT ALL! I have no restrictions, not the right to do that! And who has???!
Please help me, i need to do just a simple format and downgrade to windows 7,why is so hard???
My laptop is Acer Aspire v3 -772G
Base work to do
UEFI/BIOS firmware.
1) DISABLE Secure Boot.
2) Set OS boot to LEGACY.
3) ENABLE the F12 One Time Boot Menu.

From Windows 7x64 DVD.
4) Boot Windows 7 x64 DVD from the F12 One Time Boot Menu in Legacy mode.
5) DELETE all partitions.
6) INSTALL Windows 7 x64 in Legacy mode.

For more details of the above read the post by WHS, gregrocker & myself above.
