    Hi,

    A bisnext summary would help, boot your live usb and open a terminal:

    CODE: SELECT ALL

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cematinla/bisnext
    apt update
    apt install bisnext inxi --install-recommends
    bisnext --pastebin

    Hi JackE. I cant do nothing now. I deleted all partitions on eMMC memory when installed mint. And now can't even enter to bios with F2. I managed to install ubuntu, but i can't to launch it because i see only black screen with lock and "secure boot fail" inscription. Can you help me?

    Try this first. Press & hold power button till machine completely shuts off. Then press & hold the F2 key. Then turn the machine back on while still holding the F2 key. Jack E/NJ

    Thank you. But it didn't help me. I still see only black screen with lock and "secure boot fail" inscription. But I can launch laptop using F12 and boot usb flash drive. Any ideas? I found

    but RigacciOrg don't answer to my request. I try to ask help me acer support, but they said that acer don't support linux only windows. What can I do? Do I must buy windows for anybody help me?

    Is the bootable flash drive Linux or Win10? If Linux we can probably use Gparted clean up or rebuild the partitions that were deleted. If Win10, we can use diskpart. Jack E/NJ

    Thank you JackE, but i have no any example of deleted partition and I don't know what rebuild. I don't know what to do. Can you give me some link to partitions that contain boot files for this acer laptop?

    Can you still do this? If yes, is it a Linux or Win10 stick? Jack E/NJ

    You might want to search this forum or Google for "Linux Apollo Lake".
    I'm not an Acer employee.

    Can you run "sudo gparted" without the quotes from the command prompt terminal? If yes, what do you see? Jack E/NJ

    There probably should be a Mint swap partition. When you right click on the unallocated space, what options are available? Jack E/NJ

    No. Now it's not mint. I installed after ubuntu 17.10. Unlocated space is not swap. I don't know why installation program left it unused. I can create new partition only on unallocated space.

    @sergiy >>>Now it's not mint. I installed after ubuntu 17.10.>>>

    Now I'm confused. (1) What stick are you booting from now? (2) Is it an installation stick? (3) If not, what installation sticks do you have?  Jack E/NJ
