Hi

I'd like to access to the advanced menu so I can enable the virtualization option. I need it to run a 64-bit VM for school.

Here is a link to the currently installed BIOS, Insyde v1.11 rev 5.0. That links to an .exe, I alse extracted the .fd file from that.
If you need more information, let me know Smile

Thank you!

I would like to know if you can unlock the ACER ASPIRE E5-722G advanced menu for a reason.
The VGA and HDMI port doesn't work and I tried every drivers and supported OSes, I still get an error code 43..
This is my last option and I hope the solution is there, if you think not, I would like to know why.  Undecided

BIOS ID : Franky-CarrizoLite
VERSION : V1.11
OFFICIAL LINK : UGBI0111.exe

Thanks.

Hello community,
I received the above notebook for my birthday 2 weeks ago, and have had nothing but issues since. From random hdd pass "freezing", to incredible difficulty installing linux and getting all portions of the notebook working, it has been a trying experience.

During all my issues getting my dual boot working clean, I decided I would simply run a ubuntu VM within my cleanly running windows. Only to receive the error "AMD-VT available but disabled in bios". Which, of course, there is no option for enabling AMD-VT (or advanced menu in general for that matter).

I have posted in the Acer community support forums, and was told that Acer disables AMD-VT by default on their notebook series, and that there was purposely no option to enable it!!! Even though the cpu specifically allows it! Acer support post

Now after my own research I know that in most cases, for a full bios mod, AMD cpus require some sort of flasher device. Which I do not own. However, there are rumors around the interwebs that some have achieved changing just the desired options (without fully enabling advanced menu) by using EFI shell, or a DOS based boot of some sort. Sadly all of the tutorials I found are quite old, and for other companies, HP dell etc.

Long story short:
I need my linux, and cannot correctly run it dual boot. My AMD-VT is disabled, I have no flasher, but am rather tech saavy, and brave Smile. What are my options?
