    Have you first set and saved a supervisor password? Then have you re-entered the BIOS menu with the supervisor password? Then followed JordanB's directions immediately above your post?  Jack E/NJ

    I did everything except windows installation as my window is preinstalled.
    My harddisk partitions are not showing while installing ubuntu 18. Only bootable USB is showing as /dev/sda. I have Acer Extensa 215-52
    Do I need to change anything in BIOS or other settings?
