Cannot Boot Acer Switch 10 from USB?


Jul 12, 2015
They sold it to me with assurances that I will be able to install Linux or Win 7 on it... SetUp/Secure boot/OEM/F12 options do not work!!! Please help to get me out of Windows 8 hell.

When in Set Up I enable Boot menu F12 it offers two choices: Microsoft crap and ESC... both end up loading Win 8. Yet BIOS shows USB as boot device # 1... it is consistently ignored.

Am I such an idiot or are Acer/Microsoft folks assuming that most users are?

Please help!!!!
