Thank you for researching it.
If I were an Acer product owner, I would complain to Acer.

The doc you cite tells you on pg 36 how to enter the setup CMOS interface. It's an F2 key.
Note that Acer doesn't write the BIOS, they buy it. So you go to that BIOS manufacturer's support site for doc usually. There are only a handful of BIOS providers, fewer than motherboard makers or computer brands.
