    Press [F12] to access the Boot Menu when you'll see the Acer logo.

    1. If that doesn't work, check in the bios setup utility:
      F12 Boot Menu: [Disabled] ---> [Enabled]
    2. If you don't see the devices in the list of the Boot Menu:
      Secure boot: [Enabled] ---> [Disabled]
    3. Could you give me the first ten characters of the computer serial number (S/N)? Only the first ten.
