Some months ago I tried many times to install Debian on my Debian
Acer One ...

[*MASSIVE* SNIP]

Did you try all combinations of the following ?
- BIOS/legacy boot mode or EFI boot mode
- text-mode install or GUI install
- 32-bit install or 64-bit install

Then I try to reboot with power button but the machine remains
for many hours in that state...  Then after many hours it turns off...

I am NOT familiar with any Acer product. However, there is a useful feature in my assortment of Lenovo laptops and one desktop. It might be described as a "panic stop". It is triggered by pressing and holding the power button. It is *BRUTE* force and regularly causes Debian to run a disk diagnostic on the next boot. You might check Acer documentation or user group for a similar function.
