Acer is F12, but check your manual to be sure.
So F12 was disabled in the BIOS I found
I enabled it, then restarted it in UEFI - pressed F12 and selected the USB but it doesn't say UEFI in front of the USB drive.
Select it anyway
"Windows is loading files"
Windows logo freezes and stays frozen
Edit: also tried with just the DVD - DVD drive did not have UEFI in front of it either - froze in the same place. Maybe I did not setup the USB right? I did follow the instructions for UEFI though. Grrr! I'm really hoping that I don't have to result to cleaning the entire HDD and converting to MBR because as I said, I can't keep spending money on this - I don't have an external HDD I can use to image the existing data to.
