Keep in mind it is always a bad idea to use ACPI files from another computer. Always patch your own instead.
I know. In fact, I patched my own ACPI files for my old desktop motherboard (an ASUS P5G41M-LX board), but this laptop with EFI seems to escape my current knowledge. In my old mobo, I used Chameleon, my dsdt.aml file and was good to go. On this laptop I don't know if I have to use legacy or UEFI boot, if I have to necessairly use Clover or still use Chameleon...that's why I humbly asked for the DSDT file for this specific model (Acer E5-571G), since I have the exact same laptop (same model, same variant).

You should know from reading the guide that you cannot work with DSDT.aml. You must disassemble with iasl as per guide...

But if you use the tools linked from the guide, the DSDT.aml you provide here has no errors.
