    I think there is NO OTHER WAY to change this UEFI to LEGACY MODE (Build-in Bios mode CANNOT change other than UEFI)

    you must install via DVD Windows 8 who FULLY SUPPORT UEFI -> Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 (ONLY in x64bit mode).

     

    Step 1 

    if you allready have OS in your Acer Aspire E1-410 Laptop complete shutdown/Power off your OS

    and take out the Batterai. (<-for disabled System Resume)

    Insert you Batterai again and Power On your Acer Aspire E1-410 Laptop.

     

    Step 2

    Continue PRESS F2 Before LOGO ACER Come

     

    In InsydeH20 Setup Utility BIOS goto Main

    Network Mode [Disabled]

    F12 Boot Menu [Enabled]

    D2D Recovery [Disabled]

    Wake on LAN [Disabled]

    SATA Mode [IDE Mode]

     

    In InsydeH20 Setup Utility BIOS goto Security

    Several area will be Grey (Can't be change if you not Set Supervisor Password)

    Go in Set Supervisor Password [Enter] <- PRESS ENTER

       

       Enter New Password [123] <- YOU MUST REMEMBER IT !!!

    Confirm New Password [123]

     

    Several area will be Blue and you can change now (leave this to default now <-you can change later)

     

    Step 3

    In InsydeH20 Setup Utility BIOS goto Boot

     

      Boot Mode [UEFI]

    Secure Boot [Enabled] 

     

    You can change Boot order to first boot via F6 key to Intenal DVD

    1. ATAPI CDROM: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GUAON

    2.  ...

     

    In InsydeH20 Setup Utility BIOS goto Exit

    PRESS Exit Saving Changes and BIOS System will restart

     

    Step 4

    Continue PRESS F12 Before LOGO ACER Come

    insert Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 (both must be x64bit) Installation DVD to

    Internal DVD Acer Aspire E1-410 Laptop.

     

    Now in Boot Option Menu will HAVE

    1. ATAPI CDROM: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GUAON

     

     

    Press any key to Re-install your WIndows 8 / 8.1

    Hello istanacomputer,

     

    I see you said there is no Legacy option for bios, only UEFI. But my Aspire E1-410 shows both options in the boot menue. Mine laptop's mfg date is 9th March 2014. Did something change by this time?

     

    Thanks for your guidelines. I hope you can help me too. I tried to follow your steps but couldnt get 'boot from ATAPAI DVD-rom' option in the boot menu 'while' in UEFI mode. but the funny thing is I can find the DVD-rom boot option when in Legacy mode. I also tried the USB FDD option. Both FDD and DVD boot fails to show in UEFI mode but works in Legacy.

     

    But the actual problem is, when I come to the first/welcome page of Windows boot option, I just cant select any of the options. It sounds absurd but niether my keyboard OR my mouse works (they are both fine, I am using both right now). I cant choose the windows version/language or anything shown on that page. There is no mouse pointer and no direction key or tab key works. I cant even press 'enter' key.

     

    Plz help. My windos has been corrupted or something and its working at a pitiable speed. I cant even open a new folder without waiting for a few seconds. Chrome/Firefox doesnt open pages, not even email accs. Movies get stuck while playing. Plz Plz help.

    I thing Acer made 'mistake' in previous E1-410 (not have both UEFI and Legacy IDE) and the solve it right away so if you buy Acer E1-410 'other' than Asia Pasific Region you now can have both boot system !

    I think now Acer made thiers Computer base in Windows 8.1 (x64) boot system that mean EFI/UEFI system

    EFI/UEFI uses GPT is not NTFS Partition

    So IF you don't have any these partition in your system you THEY CAN'T RECOGNIZE THAT

    In CD/DVD it sees in:

    - EFI Boot Windows 8/8.1 Pro/Enterprise ORIGINAL DISK (untouch RAW)

    - ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE 2013 or LATER

    - ISOLINUX BOOT

     

    But the actual problem is, when I come to the first/welcome page of Windows boot option, I just cant select any of the options. It sounds absurd but niether my keyboard OR my mouse works (they are both fine, I am using both right now). I cant choose the windows version/language or anything shown on that page. There is no mouse pointer and no direction key or tab key works. I cant even press 'enter' key.

     

    If you have both boot system (the best you use EUFI BOOT) follow my previous post and clean install Win8.1

    Why ?? because Acer DO NOT HAVE compatible DRIVER other than Windows 8.1 trust me.

     

    Glad if I can help

    Sorry my lack English.
