    Hello raja, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Double check using the tutorial below to see if you have Windows 10 installed using UEIF or Legacy BIOS. If BIOS, then you won't have the UEFI Firmware options available.

    Thanks a bunch for this tutorial Brink.
    Unfortunately my Acer Predator G3-710 desktop, boots into BIOS.
    I followed your tutorial to identify if my pc is in BIOS or UEFI mode. It is in UEFI mode, no doubt.
    Any idea what should I do next?

    Hello DPC,

    After searching online, it appears that your Acer Predator G3-710 has a BIOS type UI for its UEFI firmware settings.

    Mmm, does that mean that I should be able to find Fast Boot this way?
    Or it would not be there at all?
    I was hoping I could find a some kind of firmware patch to make my BIOS-looking UEFI look and behave like a regular UEFI, but I'm not finding anything like this

    The latest BIOS firmware available for your Predator G3-710 is showing as version RO1.A4 from Acer below. It doesn't look like it will make the changes you want from its description.
