Ubuntu – Installing Ubuntu 16.04.2 alongside Windows 10 on an Acer Travelmate B117

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 16 on my Acer Travelmate that came with a pre-installed Windows 10.

I installed Ubuntu from an USB device along with Windows 10. The installation was successful, but Windows 10 keeps booting every time.

I followed some instructions I came accross and I ensured that:

  • UEFI is enabled
  • Secure Boot is disabled
  • the Fast Startup option in Windows 10 is disabled
  • the boot sequence is in the right order

No matter in which order I boot the hard drives in, it will always result in booting Windows and not showing the boot menu.

Also, I used Boot-Repair to fix this problem. It didn't help but gave me some (hopefully) useful information: https://paste2.org/9XxVEENE

What could I try next?

Have you found the "Select an UEFI file as trusted for executing" option? For me it's invisible, but some other people confirmed, that sometimes it solves the problem. Allowing boot of Ubuntu on a Acer Aspire v5-531 with UEFI
