    If you are trying to wipe the HDD, you have to re-install windows and most of drivers will reinstall themselves.
    Please remember to include @AnhEZ28 when you want to reply back to my comment so that I can check your response.
    Thank you and have a nice day!

    No, just because you wiped the OS doesn't mean you have to update the BIOS. It's still the same as it was before. You might or might not need to manually update some of the drivers after you reinstall the OS. Some are included with the Windows installer, some are not. You can download any that are missing from Acer's support site for your model.
