Hello,

Instead of shutting down your laptop as normal, try powering off by holding down the power switch for 5 seconds. Then when you power on look for the boot options at the bottom of the screen to see if more are available.

change bios to make dvd drive boot first

windows 8
 

Windows 8 uses an abbreviated Hibernate to achieve fast boot, and the Function keys are not always available when you power on...
@ Servis Komputer - that means it's hard to get into BIOS!

What do you see in the Boot Page in BIOS? Should look like this:-


You should be able to move the CD/DVD to top of the list

Can't find any reference to UEFI in the manual.
Try opening the Main Page in BIOS and change the SATA Mode to IDE instead of AHCI and see if that makes a difference

i try it nothing happens also ,, but why i cant acces the select an UEFI file as trusted for executing in the security beside boot maybe if acces it and press it it well works any idea how to acces it !!
 

Trouble is I don't know what version of Acer he has, it appears some ship with UEFI and others plain old BIOS. The Manual only gives reference to the BIOS pages, so can't see the page where UEFI is enabled/disabled...
 



Hi :)

He needs to post pics of ALL Bios pages...

All the best Brett :)
 
Foxoz, can't find any reference to UEFI anywhere but in the BIOS downloads, so unable to advise you any further, unless you can post pictures of your BIOS/UEFI pages to show what you're trying to do...Seems you need to disable UEFI if you have it in order to boot normally. Others trying to install Ubuntu have downloaded earlier BIOS versions, can you post which version you have ? Downloads here
