OT?

I've got an Acer laptop that came with Windows 10 installed and I'd
like to make it dual boot with Ubuntu, don't much care what version.
I've prepared a bootable usb stick. It boots fine with other computers
but not on the Acer. I've disabled secure boot in the BIOS and have no
option to change the boot order, Windows Boot Manager is the only
choice.

Can anyone point me to an information source for this issue? Off-list
is fine.

TIA,

Dave

On a UEFI computer you ned to get to the UEFI boot menu and select the USB
device. On my computer I have to hold down the Esc key when I power on.

The main point: In the UEFI setup the person who asked the question
disabled the Windows boot manager. Then he could boot from the USB
stick.

I hope it works for you the same way. BTW: Your question is definitely
not OT:
