- Does Ubuntu 17.10 break the BIOS? 1 answer
I can't save anything, I've desoldered the CMOS battery and it won't reset, I can't reset to defaults, nothing saves. USB booting doesn't work, presumably because Secure Boot is on and the option to clear it is grayed out (and the BIOS won't save anyways)
What happened? When I go in the boot menu, there's always Ubuntu as 1st choice and it's pretty annoying. I removed the HDD but the entry still stays there, and I've never encountered something like this before.
The laptop is an Acer Aspire E1-510, and the BIOS worked fine before I tried Ubuntu on it.
