    second the Fn keyboard doesnt work at all, Do you have any kind of

  8. Basic problem: Secure Boot! A.K.A., “Microsoft does not want you to change
    the system and install Linux (or anything which did not come with it).”

    If you can turn off secure boot, then you should be able to alter anything
    else. Some systems do not allow you to turn secure boot off. If you change
    to Legacy mode, you cannot use GPT drives. Without GPT drives, you cannot
    use UEFI boot images (and have to use MBR boot images) nor secure boot.

    Both Windows 7 & 8 (and all modern Linux Distributions) are capable of
    using legacy (MBR) and UEFI (GPT) boot images (and secure boot).

    The problem is that with Win8 already loaded with UEFI image and secure
    boot enabled, Win8 will not let you mess with its ability to boot (ie., it
    will not let you boot something else and replace it). By disabling UEFI
    mode, Win8 secure boot will fail, allowing you to boot from CD.

    However, since you booted Win7 in legacy mode, it cannot install itself
    onto a GPT drive. This drive needs to be reformatted in MBR mode first.
    However, this means that Win7 will be installed in legacy (MBR) mode.

    Alternately, you can delete the EFI (ESP, where boot images are stored) and
    Windows (in your cse, the ACER Primary, where OS is installed) partitions.
    This will remove Win8. Go back into the BIOS, enable UEFI, reboot, install
    Win7 (or your favorite Linux distro) and it will install in UEFI mode (and
    with secure boot if enabled).
