Hi i recently acquired a 2nd hand Acer Aspire E15 E5-575G
it was a bit slow so i decided to reformat it , and while windows 8.1 was installing the laptop stopped at "getting files ready at 21%" and i had to restart it, now the windows installer says no device drive found, what should i do?

Replace hard drive, try the setup again. For basic use a 120 gb or so solid state drive is plenty, and would be about $40
