Hey gang,
I have an acer aspire axc-603g that is stuck in a loop boot after running windows updates. I can't get it to boot to a Hiren's CD or USB drive. I've tried disabling secure boot in the bios and enabling the boot menu but whenever I access the boot menu the only option that shows up is "windows boot manager" which then sends me back into the boot loop. The bios version is P11-B0
I'm at a loss and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely the reason that you can't boot to USB or DVD is that the USB/DVD isn't using UEFI capable boot settings.

There's several ways around this, depending on what you want to do:

- you can change BIOS settings to disable Secure Boot and enable CSM/legacy boot stuff

- you can obtain disks that are UEFI capable and boot from them.  One example of this is Memtest86 (free from here:
