You should be able to use the UEFI boot (instead of using Legacy) with your USB HDD, without disabling Secure Boot.

If you prefer to disable SB and use Legacy then:

Debian 9 - 64bit on ACER E5-573

Posted 08-14-2016 at 08:00 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 11-05-2017 at 05:58 PM by error_401 (Updated for Debian 9)

This is another update on last years laptop with Debian 8.5 in 64bit with KDE
------------------------------------------------------------------------

As google has stopped support for the 32 bit version of chrome I have updated the known laptop with Debian 8.5. Just did a complete re-install from CD-ROM. Easier than to fumble with the 32bit and try to bring it to 64bit. At the same time we'll see what is working now.

Virtualization on Acer 5720

Posted 12-12-2008 at 04:50 AM by mallux

If anyone is thinking of buying the 350 Acer Aspire 5720 from Tesco Direct with a view to running fully virtualized guests (as I did), don't bother. The VT functionality has been disabled in the BIOS, even though the T7500 processor is completely capable of it. There is no option in the BIOS screen to enable it, and no BIOS updates on the web site.

I put this in an email to Acer technical support and was told "the issue you have described is one of a software related nature"...
