Question search for linpus lite iso w/o gui bootable with acer aspire V574

Hi all!
Just bought myself acer aspire v574 with linpus on it.
On the evening I bought it I immediately install ubuntu on it, being so stupid not to copy iso which was preinstalled.
Next day I realize that I would like to return this notebook (display is not bright enough, it is to loud, touchpad rattles) - but to do this in my country I need to restore soft with which I bought it.
I downloaded iso file from here:, but I cant install it. It looks like installation starts (I use bootable USB which works on other notebook), but after I chose "install limpus' and see pinguin in the middle of the screen with clockwise circling arrows - after some time screen becomes black with blinking cursor in the middle, and no installation. It stops before asking ,do you want new installation along or above your current system?,
If anybody can advice how to put back linpus w/o GUI (and where to take it) - Ill really appreciate.

After giving my notebook to IT department issue still wasn't resolved/
I call to acer service center, where they told me that only specially customized Linpus could be installed.
I give up, install Windows 8 and a list of games and give notebook to my 10 years old kid. He is happy.

How are you trying to install it? Did you burn the iso file as an image to a DVD, use some software to put it on a flash drive as bootable and boot from the flash? Be more specific about what you mean by 'after some time'. Are you actually able to boot the installation medium? If so, at what point do you get this problem.
