Secure Boot Disable 'not working' on Acer E17

I had a laptop with Win 10 pre installed, but I want to completely replace it with Linux Mint 17.3. I installed it from a live USB, but when I restarted and unplugged the drive, it did not find the HDD with a bootable OS. I followed other advice and created a supervisor password and supposedly disabled Secure Boot, but it still read that the mode was 'standard', with no way to change that. I am practically ripping my hair out with this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
