Hi

Have recently inherited an Acer PC with AMI 8M SPI ROM BIOS lists AMI ver: P01-A1

Have tried to use my Hiren's 15.2 USB Drive with it but will not Boot. No problems with my other WinXP PCs.

Was told the problem is "Secure Boot" Have checked All the Screens for "Secure Boot" but have not found it.

Googled and seems that this AMI ver has "Hidden Screens".

Did find "How to Unlock the AMI Hidden BIOS Settings By Andrew Meer https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how- ... s-settings Tried All the combinations he mentions but to date have Not accessed any "Hidden Settings"

Appreciate any help to disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Support for this PC.

Also did Forum search but only got "SEARCH FOUND 0 MATCHES: DISABLE SECURE BOOT AND ENABLE LEGACY AMI BIOS VER: P01-A1"

Thanks

Ken
