Yes windows 8 on Acer a500 work properly.
Quick Gudie Instalation Windows 8 on Acer Iconia tab W500.

1. Insert USB flash drive
2. Run diskpart
3. Type “List Disk” (or “lis dis”) to determine which drive is the flash drive
4. Type “Select Disk x” (or “Sel Dis x”) with x being the drive number of the flash drive
5. Type “Clean”
6. Type “Create Partition Primary”
7. Type “Format FS=NTFS QUICK”
8. Type “Active”
9. Type “Exit”
Use your preferred ISO extraction tool to extract the files out the flash drive.
