The acer's are currently setting up their hard drives as a RAID setup, so you would need to press F6 durring the boot from the CD, enter a floppy with the RAID driver on it, then go on to install. Depending on the BIOS of that lappy, you might be able to change the hard drive setup to some like "IDE", or "Legacy" instead of RAID.

Sorry. When you narrow it down to your laptop, go down in the driver list to all of the intel drivers. one of them will be the AHCI. Odds are it will will be "Intel AHCI Driver x.x.xx"
