    (1) What problem did you have with Home Premium? (2) Did you also delete the hidden recovery partition?

    The ACER v1.18 was released yesterday. If you are experiencing no issues other than Device Mgr/BIOS Info reporting descrepancies, disregard  it for now. Jack E/NJ

    1) Just wanted to use pro as it do have more features like V sync and bashshell for linux and bitlocker that i needed so you can understand.......
    And the case is that you know we can go in the bios from pressing f2 at the time of boot and it showed me bios V 1.18 where in windows device manager it is showing something else (bios V1.15) that i can't understand why is it happening.

    Press the Winkey + R. Enter "msinfo32.exe" without the quotes. What BIOS version do you see? Jack E/NJ

    You obviously have 1.18. Can you post a screenshot of your Device Manager output? Jack E/NJ
