What a nightmare bought an Acer Cloudbook 14 from Acer refurbished outlet, came with win 10, so I ran lubuntu live went in and removed the partition and win 10 and then the fun started, will not let me boot anything, never had this am assuming it's a Microsoft and Acer proprietary issue, just want my linux would not let me run dban or Elementary .

just downloaded "wipemydisks1.1 am hoping this will force it to boot .

Any help would be wonderful....

So I created a Linux Mint install USB drive and plugged it in.

After enabling the F12 key in the BIOS I installed Linux Mint on the internal drive without any problems. The problem came after I rebooted when I was greeted with the no boot device icon on screen.

After a brief stroke of my beard, I realised that this was UEFI’s secure boot causing the problem. In the end I had to set a supervisor password for the BIOS and add the trusted UEFI file manually (you can get to the BIOS by pressing F2 on boot).
