Ubuntu – system bootOrder not found

18.04biosuefi

I tried to install Ubuntu 18.04 on Acer TravelMate P278-MG, but it bootloops
1. It starts up, shows Acer logo
2. It says:

System BootOrder not found. Initializing defaults.
Creating boot entry "BootXXXX" with label "ubuntu" for the file "\EFI\ubuntu\shimx.efi"
Reset System

Where XXXX – number, depending on the BIOS configuration(I tried Legacy, UEFI with SecureBoot on and off, different boot devices(there is Linplus lite boot device, which is strange))
3. goto 1.

I found the solution on another forum. Two steps. Select a UEFI file as trusted and given it a custom name. Then go to the boot menu and select it as first priority as described below.

PROBLEM SOLVED! It turned out the problem was in the bios settings. I switched "secure boot" on which unlocked few more options. One of them was "Select an UEFI file as trusted for executing" that's in the "security" tab. After that it showed me HDD0, I hitted enter and "EFI" showed up. After another ENTER it showed 3 folders "ubuntu", "microsoft" and "boot". The ubuntu folder contained "shimx64.efi", "grubx64.efi" and "MokManager.efi" I'm not very familiar what all of them were, but I chosed "shimx64.efi" which was then added as "trusted for executing". I went back to the boot tab and found "EFI boot0: ubuntu" or something like it. That's because I named the "trusted" UEFI file "ubuntu". I moved it up to first priority and everything worked like a charm. Thanks for the advices, they made me search for my own mistakes in the bios configuration.
