Windows 7: Windows 7 on Dell Inspiron 11 3147

Windows 7 on Dell Inspiron 11 3147

Please only answer this specific question:
Had anyone been able to install any flavor of Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 11 3147 laptop?
If so, please tell me how you did it.
If you don't have specific info regarding this exact machine, please don't answer.
I've exhaustively researched how to do it and have not had success with anything I've tried. I'm pretty sure it is impossible, so at this point I'm only seeking absolute evidence to the contrary.

When I try to do it I get the BSOD stop message stating that my machine's BIOS is not fully ACPI compliant.

While I appreciate that helpful people will want to jump in and suggest possible BIOS settings and other solutions based on their experience with other machines, I honestly only want to know if anyone has successfully installed it on this machine.
Thanks so much for reading!
