My Acer Aspire V3-772G-9829 came with Windows 8 installed.  It took a local business computer store tech 90 minutes to locate and download a bunch of hardware drivers [from numerous manufacturers of the chips and stuff on the motherboard, etc.] for my Windows 7 Professional 64bit -- and it works great!  It costs, but sure was worth it!

Can the Acer Aspire V3-372 be done likewise by a local business computer store tech?

That is fine, I am aware of that as when I checked their website I realized it is only for windows 10 no windows 7

But I am still interested to do install windows 7, but I am stuck at the point where external USB pen drive or external USB CD ROM can't pass the error message 

A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing

and cause is

 

In order to resolve this you need to download the appropriate RAID drivers for your computer's motherboard. If you know the manufacturer of your motherboard you can usually get these from their website or a disk that came with your motherboard or PC.

Based on the this website
