Got another one but for 7 ultimate:

sha1: 326327cc2ff9f05379f5058c41be6bc5e004baa7

Here a discuss at SevenForums about what it can had happenned:

Quote:
When you downloaded a file, your not creating it but merely copying it so the hash will match.

The ISO you created from the DVD is not the original file so it doesn't match the original hash, you created that file so it creates a new hash.

If anyone could create a file and have it match another file's signature that was created somewhere else then it defeats the point of hashing altogether
You might know it when you burn the Dvd...if it's wrong. But better check before.

If you downloaded your version Home Premium then you need to check against the HASH for that and not Ultimate: Windows 7 RTM SHA-1 hash / checksums

If not, then you need to unlock all versions in the ISO (using tool I posted earlier) to burn an all-version DVD so you can install your licensed version which will activate with the Product Key on COA.

Use the drivers given by the installer unless there are any missing in Device Manager, or performance dictates otherwise.

During the avalanche of complaints about DR failing to provide student download, MS corrected the situation here: http://gizmodo.com/5391268/microsoft...grade-problems

Acer has several useless utility partiitons and often a hidden EISA partition which need to be cleaned from HD before install. Boot DVD Repair console or Repair CD, press Shift F10 at first screen or click through to Recovery Tools list to open a Command Line, type:
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (win 7 HD)
CLEAN ALL
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT=NTFS
ASSIGN
EXIT

This sets you up with one partition. If you want more, or want the 100mb Sys Reserved boot partition provided on unformatted HD's, then use the DVD to create partitions and format.

To get rid of EISA: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/02/29/delete-and-remove-to-unlock-eisa-hidden-recovery-or-diagnostic-partition-in-vista/

Be sure to make your Recovery Disks first so you have a path back to Factory Condition, or save a Win7 backup image of all partitions. You can order Recov Disk set for free from Acer in first 90 days.

I obtained a copy of the W764-bit Home Premium .iso from what was supposedly DigitalRiver.Removed the eicfg-per your post-and used imageburn to create a bootable DVD.It was veryfied.I went as far as running the .exe and it went strightway to the W7 install screen.Just as if I were performing a recovery.I got a little nervouse,though,and got out before it was too late.

The problem I have with this .iso is that it in fact did not come from DigitalRiver,but a site with digitalriver content.My dialog with digitalriver has led me to contact MS directly,for I did not attain my copy from Online Store.Of course it was preinstalled.My 90 days are up from Acer,but I've got the ext. warranty.Yet I loathe letting someone else digging around in my Laptop.Banish the thought!

I have made repair disk,system-image ,and a couple other back-up things.

I will study the rest of your post for a while.I am going to contact MS in the AM.Even though I believe I have an unlocked bootable W7 .iso,I really want to make sure it's also legitamate.Call me old fashioned.

So, are you telling me that practically all drivers needed are on this .iso disk?And that I should only need to use ACER drivers if I need to?I wish I could run all MS.Then as the time passes,tweak here and there to my needs.
