Advanced BIOS Settings?

Hello Acer Community,

I do have an Acer Aspire ES1-132 Notebook and I'm wondering if there is a way to enter the advanced settings in the UEFI.

Is there any possible way?

Any Help is appreciated.

Greetings from Germany.

Hannes

    Gern geschehen.
    I don't think that the Advanced tab will help installing Linux. In Scarboro's thread, he notes: "Acer omitted the UEFI option "Trusted EFI file for executing" from their E and F series computers".
    Suggestions:
    1) use his thread as a guide.
    2) disable Secure Boot.
    3) refer to this tutorial.
    Viel Erfolg.

    It cannot be as simple as Fn + Tab, in the video below.
    Found this thread for your model, but respondent said unlock for ES1-512 would not work. Read elsewhere that Acer UEFI screen is rather spartan.

    Found another video which advised pressing Fn + Tab 3 times in the UEFI screen.  If it works, fine; if not, no harm done.
    If it is not possible to unlock the Advanced tab, let us know your objective & we will try to come up with a work-around.

    Hello!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to answer. I tried your suggestions, but they didn't work.

    As for my objective ... I'm trying to install Linux Mint on this Machine (Acer Aspire ES1-132), but with no luck so far. (After succesfully installing and rebooting the machine, it tells me: 'No bootable device.)

    So I was wondering if there are more options in the advanced settings to make Linux Mint run on my machine.

    ' Yesterday I got a suggestion (how to install Linux Mint), so I'll try this first.

    But I would be still interested in accessing the advanced settings, if somebody knows how.

    Thanks again for your help.

    In fact, it is possible to unlock the hidden page which is the advanced page and I have just successfully unlocked every single setting in the bios of my acer es1-311. However, you might need an external programmer for it...
