    Yes, I have, but haven't found the option to boot from the .exe file, that I have on a FAT32 formatted USB.

    I haven't looked at the videos on the Acer site yet, so will have a shufty, ta!

    Many older Acer, required you to set an UEFI password to open up additional settings. Some now require control-S.
    Never lose that password or you may have a brick, or reset to blank when done making UEFI setting changes.

    Acer Swift 5 (2019) ctrl-s in UEFI required to be able to change to AHCI mode.
