I just bought an Aspire 1, model A114 - 61 - S1A7. I'm trying to install Linux Mint but it is very problematic. I decided to write here after reading lots of post on Ubuntu/Linux forums and in this forum too. I have read also this post https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/598047/
but nothing helps.
I disabled Secure boot.
I set a Supervisor password.
I enabled F12 boot option.
I can't change from UEFI to Legacy mode, it's not an option.
I can't change the boot hierarchy simply because Win Boot Manager is the only oprion.
After creating a Live usb with Linux, I did it with Rufus on Windows making sure I selected GPT and FAT32, still not working.
Simply any Live bootable usb won't show up.
I am very close to give this laptop to my parents and seek to buy another one.
Any help is truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
