    Go to BIOS settings with F2 key
    Add the .efi file to the trusted UEFI files by selecting it and naming the option to whatever you want.
    Enable F12 boot menu.
    Exit saving changes.
    Tap F12 until you get boot menu.
    You will see your boot option there.

    If you didn't delete the hidden ACER recovery partition, press and hold the power button to completely shut the machine off. Then turn it back on and immediately press and hold the ALT key while tapping the F10 key. A recovery screen should appear. Follow directions as on this video to re-set the machine to factory fresh state. If it fails, we may have to alter partition sizes to original. Jack E/NJ

    I remember once I successfully reinstalled windows 10 with no problem, don't know what happened now!
    It boots successfully from bootable Linux

    Since you have a 32 bit UEFI, I think you should try 32 bit windows.   If that doesn't work, try to boot a Gparted live USB and delete all of your partitions.  I'm not familiar with your computer model so I don't know what BIOS settings you should use.  Default maybe?  IDK

    Edit:  You can order your recovery media from Acer if you didn't create a recovery drive.

    >>>play little bit with UEFI settings>>>It boots successfully from bootable Linux  >>>

    What is the Linux distribution? Is it a Linux GPT partition FAT32 installation stick that you tried to install in UEFI mode  alongside Windows in dual boot? Or did you just delete all Windows stuff, installed Linux in UEFI mode on the drive hoping to boot Windows from a stick when needed?   Jack E/NJ

    I have the same problem.  My son tried to installed an Android distribution on a Acer one 10 S1003 and now keep looping.  I wanttogo back to Windows 10, but it has been a real problem.  I am about to order a recovery drive from Acer.  Where can I do that?

    @adesedas ; Press and hold the power button till the machine completely shut off. Then turn it back on and immediately press and hold the ALT key while tapping the F10 key. If the hidden ACER recovery partition is still intact, a recovery screen should appear as shown in the video below. It should allow re-setting the machine to a factory-fresh Win10 state. Jack E/NJ
