Acer Aspire A515-96G - Windows 10 installation driver

A515UserA515User Member Posts: 2 New User
Hi,
due to incompatibility hw with linux (wireless chipset is not supported) I've to reinstall windows 10, but during installation I got error about driver missing.
I've try to download from Acer support but when requested from installation them are viewed but not recognized (Intel RST VMD controller 9A0B and Intel RST VMD Managed Controller 09AB)
I've try to follow workaround that suggest to disable VMD from bios, but it don't work.

Any suggestion to solve the swamp situation?
Thanks

    (1) Did you delete the hidden ACER OEM recovery partition?

    (2) Please post phone photos of BIOS Information & Main tabs if possible.

    Hi, after punching with some attempt I've found a solution by using kali linux to remove all and after with Rufus and Windows 10 iso (GPT format) I've reinstall all. Now it work fine. Thank you

    Thanks for reporting back. Yes, both Linux and Windows should be installed on GPT partitioned boot drive, not MBR. LinuxMint  should be fully compatible with A515-56G model with GPT partitioning, even in dual boot mode.
