Where did you get the idea that flashing BIOS would have miraculously cured your problem of Can't restore Acer laptop to factory settting ?

A failed BIOS update is a very serous matter. Check with the instruction that came with the update to see what (if any) recovery options might be available. Failing that, contact the manufacturer or your dealer to see what your options are.

the bios sounds ok, as you can post and it gets too starting windows then fails,
drop in the win 7 dvd and do a repair, that should fix your issue.

you can create a usb boot drive,
then hit an F key for boot options during post, (you will see a popup that tells you which key to hit for boot options) boot and install from the usb.
sounds to me like you would be better off paying someone to sort out your machine cos you have a big learning curve to go through...

Some BIOS updates unfortunately confuse settings. For example, if Windows is installed in IDE mode but BIOS update makes it AHCI, then your Windows cannot start. I am not saying it happened like this. This is an example.

You have to find correct settings for your notebook and configure BIOS accordingly. If you can get into BIOS, that means your BIOS update is good. And I think it is good because you see Windows starting screen, as princecorum already mentioned.

You cannot start from DVD drive because your notebook may have been configured to boot from HDD. Or if it is IDE/AHCI thing and your DVD drive is IDE, then you have a problem unless BIOS is configured as IDE.

All you have to do is, get into BIOS and tell us what you find there. Boot Priority, IDE/SATA drives setting, etc.
