Comment 434 for bug 1734147

I was able to fix my laptop thanks to you! I really appreciate the help Leo! :)
Strangely, it seems like the Legacy fix works for Acers running the InsYde BIOS, but UEFI still remains broken for some.

As for potential fixes, has anyone tried installing Ubuntu 17.10 (Here's a spin of this distro: onto another SATA HDD and swapping that with the SATA drive in your laptop?

If it's possible to boot into that drive, try to install Kernel 4.14.9. That could potentially fix the problem for certain Acer laptops.
