I wanna preface by saying that I recently bought this computer 2 weeks ago and I have updated bios and firmware.
I have very strange problem, I'm trying to dual boot windows 10 witm Linux ( Manjaro). To do this I have created a windows partition and linux partitions (Swap,boot efi, Root, home) see guide https://forum.manjaro.org/t/howto-dual-boot-manjaro-windows-10-step-by-step/52668
When I have sucessfully installed linux, I encounter a problem, the computer wont boot into bois when I press F2 and it is stuck on the Acer Logo. If i delete the linux partitions the computer can boot into bios by pressing F2, So it has something to do with the ext4/EFI partitions that i create, which makes no sense since it shouldn't have anything to do with booting into bois.
And this problem occour even with a different Linux (Kubuntu), samething happens there when the partitions is sucessfully created and the Linx distoro is installed the computer wont go past the Acer logo when pressing F2. After deleting the linux partitions the computer can boot sucessfully into bios again .
I been searching on the internet for a solution to this problem and I found this https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/603201/cannot-enter-bios-stuck-on-acer-logo
This guy had the samething as me and when he deleted the Linux partitions he could boot into bios again.
I can boot into the boot menu by pressing F12 (It works) I can boot into Linux and Windows with no problem, only booting into bios doesn't work.
I'm wondering if there is some bug with the firmware and EFI entries.
Have you guys stumbled upon anything like this?
