Hi, so long-story short, hard drive died in our Acer Aspire E5-511 laptop just out of warranty, so we did a home replacement, everything went well, we didn't break anything despite the horrific design but then we encountered an issue.

The screen said 'No bootable device', simple fix right? We installed a new copy of Windows using the boot manager to install it from the disc to the hard drive and everything went well.
Later we realised though our touchpad wasn't responding because we didn't have drivers (which we later installed but rather because we had to set-up to laptop to load up in legacy mode instead of UEFI which Acer laptops apparently don't like.

To counter this we were able to disable secure boot in UEFI and move over to that but we just ended back up to 'No bootable device' again. Ok, I didn't keep it that short. Sorry for the long post but we're kind of stumped for ideas. Ask any questions about the laptop and I'll answer them to the best of my ability. Thanks.

Hi,

First just leave secure boot enabled because you don't need to disable it if you'll be installing drivers inside Windows. Once it has loaded normally in the desktop screen you can download and install the Acer Touchpad driver from there.

Here are the drivers for your Touchpad depending on what you have in your laptop.
