Q: Windows 10 boot into UEFI firmware settings missing

I have Dell Inspiron 15R 5537,. i installed Windows 8 and yesterday updated it inot window 10. Now my UEFI Firmware Settings" option is missing from the Windows advanced startup options.

Is there a method or driver that allows for enabling the UEFI Firmware Settings menu entry?

I'm even willing to reinstall the fresh Window agin, though I also can't seem to boot from CD/DVD at this point.
thanks for your reply.

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 boot into UEFI firmware settings missing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys,
So Im trying to install a new graphics card, and I have to tweak some settings in the bios. Unfortunately, when I try to open it(pressing escape at startup, scrolling down, and selecting uefi settings and pressing enter) nothing happens. I looked this up, and it said to go to advanced startup and go through some steps to get to a menu that supposedly contains "uefi firmware settings". Now, I confirmed that this is the right menu, but the option is just not there. I thought about updating my BIOS, but there are no updates for it available.
Does anyone know what do?
Thanks in advance

Can you confirm that you do have UEFI Bios? The simplest way to do this is check via System Information (type in the search box) and see what it says. E.g.

I have a Dell Precision Tower 5810 running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
I created Rescue Media for the Macrium Reflect Free Imaging Software on a USB Flash Drive.
I can boot to that USB Flash Drive IF I can first boot into Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
But, the chances are that when I will need that Rescue Media, I probably will not be able to boot into Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit.
I have tried to directly access the UEFI by pressing the F2 key at the Dell Logo after powering on the System.  I also tried F12.  Neither has worked.
Is there something different that needs to be done on a Dell Precision Tower 5810 running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit to directly access the UEFI & change the boot sequence when I cannot boot into Windows?

I cannot seem to access the bios at all with windows 8.1 and my gtx 780 ti. When I connect the hdmi to my gtx 670, I can see the bios screen and can change the config but with the hdmi in my 780 ti I get a black screen until the dual boot windows selection. I've disable fast boot and have no idea what else to do.

A:No "uefi firmware settings" option on asrock z77 extreme 4

My guess is its defaulted back to another output on that card. I have three monitors on my GT 640. My BIOS splash screen and the Windows splash screen display on one monitor (DVI), and the Windows logon screen etc display on my main monitor (HDMI). It does the same thing whether I set Windows to single monitor or extend. I haven't tried it with just the HDMI monitor plugged in by itself though. Normally they should all go to the one monitor that's plugged in. If I get a chance latter on I'll unplug my two DVI monitors and see what happens. There is no guaranty that it will do what yours is doing but it will be interesting to see what happens just for future reference for me.

I bought a Lenovo
It has an UEFI firmware associated with Windows 8 OS protecting it by secure Boot feature.
When i boot in recovery mode i could see an option saying about UEFI software/hardware.

I used GParted and deleted ALL its partitions.
I installed 8 again with my partitonign.
No UEFI present there and no option on the recovery menu as before.
How can i re-associate UEFI firmware with Win8 OS as it was when i bough it?
What's the reason of UEFI existance anyway? In what ways can it be usefull?

A:UEFI firmware associated with Windows 8

To have the options to enable Secure Boot, you need to do a UEFI install from UEFI-capable media (DVD, FAT32-formatted USB key, UEFI-compatible PXE network boot) onto a machine with UEFI enabled. If you installed from media that wasn't a DVD, FAT32 USB key, or a PXE boot from a UEFI-capable boot server, you actually installed in BIOS mode (the Compatibility Support Module, or CSM, is activated in the UEFI OS to allow this). Also, your partitions need to be GPT partitions, not MBR, so if you created MBR partitions during the installation (even if you installed from proper media and selected the UEFI boot option to do so) you still won't have a UEFI install.

From what you're seeing, you have a BIOS CSM install, not a UEFI install, so you've done something wrong (you might need to boot to a boot option menu on the Lenovo to select a "UEFI" boot option versus a normal one, for instance). And there are a lot of benefits to UEFI over BIOS (security being only one of them), and most of them relate to boot and runtime performance of certain components and drivers.

Dual Boot W10 + W8.1 installs using 2 SSDs. Any thoughts on why there are less partitions on SSD install #2?

SSD 1 W10 (installed first) C Drive:

- Recovery
- System
- Reserved
- Primary

SSD 2 W8.1 (installed last)

- Reserved
- Primary

Am I right in saying that install/SSD 2 shared the (Recovery, System) UEFI boot partition and that this is not good if I remove SSD1?

How do you prevent this on SSD #2, by physically removing SSD #1 when installing OS #2?

Appreciate any help.

A:Windows 10 Dual Boot UEFI Missing or Shared Partitions on SSD2?

Yes, the only way to ensure that a clean install of Windows will not affect any other hard drives/SSDs with system partitions on them is to disconnect them when installing Windows to the drive you want it exclusively on. Unplugging either the data cable or the power cable is good enough.

rdubayah,
If your computer was running WIndows 10 without any issues prior to downloading the Anniversary update, then you would not have had to change any settings in the bios to install the update.The UEFI and Secure Boot settings are to enable booting with a USB or DVD to install Windows.
Disable Legacy Boot Mode and Enable UEFI
Start the computer and TAP the F2 key to enter the bios. Once in the bios Press F9 to Restore the bios to the Default Settings. F10 to save changes and exit. You could have a hardware problem. To run a hardare diagnostics on the computer you would start the computer and TAP the F5 key. Insert a cd/dvd in the optical drive for running the diags.

Does this model (from around 2010) have UEFI firmware? I don't see any indication that it does, with Windows reporting that the "BIOS Mode" is "Legacy." I don't see any legacy BIOS emulation switches in the BIOS setup either. But out of paranoia, could it be the case that it does have UEFI firmware, but I've caused it to be permanently in legacy emulation mode or something? Confusingly, the support website offers an enigmatically named "HP BIOS Update UEFI." Could it be that some update (which I haven't been able to install) changes it from one thing to another?

We have 2 Precision T3610 computers and want to do a fresh install of Windows 10 in UEFI mode.  One computer worked using a Win10 FAT32 (UEFI-compatible) USB key and is successfully running Windows 10 booting in UEFI.  The other doesn't show any UEFI boot options with the same USB key installed, same BIOS, same options set.
Tried front and rear USB 2.0 slots, tried 3 different FAT32 Windows 10 installation keys.  Current BIOS A14 on both computers.  Tried downgrading BIOS to A13, still no options (only Legacy boot options show up even when in UEFI mode).  Cleared CMOS with jumper, still no options.  Upgraded BIOS back to A14, still no options.
Any ideas?

A:UEFI boot keeps changing; UEFI/Win7 handshaking confusion

Hello and welcome diana look I am having a little difficulty in following the train of the thread.

Now do you mean you just backed up the SSD to a USB stick ? then tried to transfer that USB stick back up to the spinner? If it was just a back up then I don't think it is going to work because it is only a backup.

To make the spinner the boot device I would be cloning the SSD to the spinner. I wouldn't mucking around with sticks as I cannot see why that is necessary.

Hi all,

Currently having a wake on lan issue with a certain computer.

The machine is setup correctly but the windows boot information is stored in a 100mb UEFI partition, and when the computer wakes on lan, it will not boot windows, just sit at a blank screen.

When it wakes on lan it is trying to boot from the legacy device (same blank screen happens if you choose to boot from it from bios)

ive tried updating the bios but no luck, all settings seem to be as they should be.

Is there some trick to get it to load the UEFI MBR, or is there a safe way other then reformatting the machine to move the MBR over to the legacy device itself?


Thanks for any help.

A:Boot UEFI from wake on lan, or convert UEFI MBR to legacy.

Back up your files, unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk: remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SEL DIS 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CONVERT MBR
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

Yes. This is how I do any OS tests\'dual boot'\experiments etc with zero chance of damage to the original boot OS\hd. Am keeping a bunch of old HD's for the purpose. The downside is the slight risk for some mechanic\connection problems, just be careful, remember to power down! So if you don't find it troublesome to switch HD's, IMO go ahead and try that route.

I am in the process of doing a number of clean installs I am trying to make a decision as to whether or not to utilize the UEFI and Secure Boot modes which are available on the MBs It seems from an initial attempt that I cannot simply use UEFI GPT without turning not UEFI/SB, or is UEFI/Secure question.. to Boot the that on UEFI/Secure Boot or not to UEFI/SB, that is the question.. Secure Boot that is one must NOT use CSM turn it off and USE Secure Boot You cannot use UEFI without Secure Boot Is this correct I am considering us ng UEFI without Secure Boot because I hear it is faster However I am concerned that I will run into all sorts of trouble turning Secure Boot on with respect to double booting Win and additionally with creating images with Acronis I have been in the habit of creating a new PC with an extra drive with a cloned OS then disconnecting the drive so that if the first OS drive fails the person can boot up quickly with the other drive I am concerned that there will be a problem with Secure Boot I mean how many times have I been infected with a root kit some virus that take over at boot time Answer never since I started with PCs in So anyone really think Secure Boot is worth it

A:UEFI/Secure Boot or not to UEFI/SB, that is the question..

Secure Boot does not affect the speed of your computer.

Windows 8/8.1/10 are compatible with the Secure Boot.

I don't know about Acronis True Image but Macrium Reflect is compatible with the Secure Boot.

It is a very important security feature.






Microsoft designed Secure Boot to protect the computer from low-level exploits and rootkits and bootloaders. A security process shared between the operating system and Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI, replacing the BIOS), Secure Boot requires all the applications that are running during the booting process to be pre-signed with valid digital certificates. This way, the system knows all the files being loaded before Windows 8 loads and gets to the login screen have not been tampered with.

If a bootloader has infected your computer and it tries to load during the boot-up sequence, Secure Boot will be able to undo all the changes and thwart the attack. Having Secure Boot means it is that much harder for attackers to try to compromise the start up sequence.

I read the discussion on the Intel community page.
It looks like you already tried all possible solutions to install Win 7.
It looks like Win 8 can be installed properly but only Win 7 isn?t possible.
Not quite sure why this isn?t possible but in case its SSD drive issue, you should try another SSD drive.
Maybe its a compatibility problem between the controller and SSD drive.

When you go to your BIOS boot options the DVD drive should be listed twice, once with UEFI in front of it and one entry with no UEFI in the description. Selecting the entry with UEFI in the description will boot from the DVD in UEFI mode. If the PC doesn't have UEFI or UEFI is disabled you won't see UEFI mentioned in the boot menu.

i've installed windows 10 on linux before and i've never had any problems booting it (from what i remember, through UEFI boot sources). currently the windows 10 iso seems to be the only one that isn't appearing in UEFI; i installed peppermint from lubuntu using the same image disk writer on the same usb 30 minutes ago.
am i supposed to have some specific settings enabled/disabled in my bios to boot the windows install? secure boot is disabled and legacy boot is enabled.

A:windows 10 usb not appearing in UEFI boot sources

Why are you enabling legacy boot.

Surely you want eufi boot, and also make sure usb stick is set for a gpt formatted installation.

Also installing windows 10 after linux generally breaks the linux booting. You would have to mess around with grub etc.

Usual advice is to install windows 10 then linux.

A:HELP!! Windows 7 on SSD failed to boot, goes into UEFI BIOS.

Hi there

In all cases ensure LEGACY BOOT is enabled if that option exists in BIOS.

1) First ensure PROTECTED BOOT is DISABLED -- this doesn't mean turning off UEFI.
2) Ensure the SSD is formatted to GPT and NOT MBR
3) Ensure your W7 install media will handle UEFI boot and install.

If you Don't want to use UEFI boot

1) Disable UEFI in BIOS.
2) Format SSD as MBR
3) Install W7 - default mode will be non UEFI.

Cheers

A:Repair Windows 7 boot menu on UEFI

Lets start with the basic stuff first. In your bios, there should be a Windows Boot Manager listed in the Boot options. Is that set to first priority? USB flash drives need additional steps to make them useable in UEFI. The Windows USB maker will not work. Use an Install DVD if you have one, if not, download one from here.

http://www.mydigitallife.info/offici...digital-river/

If you need to boot to the UEFI version of the Install DVD, you also need to go into the bios and select the UEFI DVD entry.

I will go through your post after this response, so let us know if you are able to run the Startup Repair, if needed.

What motherboard/system do you have?

Edit: EasyBCD is not UEFI aware. It may be able to repair some things, but I don't recommend using it, but since you say a beta does, I will do some testing.

Ubuntu has UEFI also and installs fine using it. No need to use some additional procedure to add it to the boot. Just use the Boot Menu F key to choose it from the list, or go into the Bios to set it first priority. The Boot Device list menu in a one time choice, and does not set that device to first priority in the bios.

Hello everyone, I recently purchased a new laptop after about 8 years. Previously, I had BIOS in my old laptop from which while booting, I could easily press the F8 key and choose to boot from any other medium such as a USB or a DVD. So, suppose when my OS used to crash or get bricked, I simply waited for the BIOS to turn on, and I hit the F8 key to boot using a Windows DVD and reinstall the OS to solve my problems. But now, in my new laptop which has UEFI and Windows 8.1, suppose if the OS completely gets corrupted, how do I boot from a DVD?

The only way I know how to boot using a DVD is to load Windows 8.1 and then head into settings and schedule it to boot from DVD the next time, but what if I cannot load Win 8.1 at all?

Thanks

Thanks for adding information about EFI BIOS which present a problem for many during installation and repairs.

For this reason alone, I would advise disabling EFI BIOS in BIOS boot order or choosing Legacy BIOS in BIOS setup, installing normally to an MBR disk.

Wiping a HD already formatted as GPT disk with Diskpart Clean Command can clear the way for it to install as MBR. Sometimes it also takes runnning the command "Convert MBR" to change disk from GPT.

Sure. BL does support GPT.

Hi all,

I got a new laptop. It is UEFI. I want to have multiple partitions. 1. Windows 10 2. Windows 7 3. Another Windows 7 Install or Windows 10

Created slipstream ISO of both Windows Pro x64 and Windows 10 Home x64, with updates and drivers from lenovo.

Deleted all partitions on the HD, installed Windows 10. Then in the UEFI bios, disabled secure boot and enabled legacy mode with uefi as first option.

Then stuck in my Windows 7 iso and booted. I get to the installing windows prompts and then I get a "Load Driver" pop up. Not sure what driver it is asking for. Laptop has x2 usb ports and x1 usb 2 port. I have the usb in my usb 2 port.

No clue what to do now.

I installed Windows 8.1 (64) with UEFI in my Asus X550L laptop (I refer this forum UEFI USB guide). After the installation I can see 4 partitions. Just like the tutorial mentioned. Once the Windows 8.1 installation completed I try to boot into the UEFI settings menu, but it boot into the BIOS.

In BIOS, when I select "Launch EFI Shell from filesystem device" it shows not found message.


What could be the reason and how to fix this matter?

A:Issue with Asus X550L UEFI settings

The EFI shell is something you don't normally have to invoke. It is probably not even set up to use.

The UEFI settings are accessed through the Bios. What exactly are you wanting to do with the UEFI settings?

Nob question for you experts. After reading many threads about this UEFI stuff, i'm confused. I have a Asus Sabertooth z77 motherboard and will be fresh installing windows 8.1 full to Samsung 250gb ssd. I'm not quite getting what i'm supposed to configure on the MB for UEFI boot prior to installing the windows 8.1. Anyone please explain step by step as to what needs to done in the bios before I install windows please. Oh and I will be using the DVD disk to install.

   Tip
If you are installing Windows 7/8/10 from a USB flash drive in UEFI Boot Mode, then you need to have a UEFI Boot Mode compatible Windows 7/8/10 USB flash drive.

Here is more info: UEFI Boot Mode (installing using the GPT partition style) and Legacy BIOS Boot Mode (installing using the MBR partition style). -> link

Asus motherboard with UEFI firmware. How to install Windows 7/8/10 64-bit in UEFI Boot Mode.

You do not need to change the default UEFI firmware (BIOS) settings.

Note: You need to select to boot from the UEFI type (marked UEFI in the boot menu) if you want to install Windows 7/8/10 64-bit in UEFI Boot Mode (see screenshot below).

Note: You do not need to change the boot order of drives in your UEFI firmware settings.
- Connect your Windows 7/8/10 64-bit USB flash drive (Note: FAT32 file system) or insert your Windows 7/8/10 64-bit DVD.
- Restart the computer.
- Press the correct key to enter the boot menu (for example, Asus F8 and Gigabyte F12).
- Select to boot from the "UEFI: USB/DVD device name" (see screenshot below).

If you are booting from a Windows 7/8/10 64-bit USB flash drive in UEFI Boot Mode, then UEFI firmware run \efi\boot\bootx64.efi file. Note: This file does not exist by default in the Windows 7 installation media, so you need to create this file by using the Rufus program, if you want UEFI Boot Mode compatible Windows 7 64-bit USB flash drive.

If you are booting from a Windows 7/8/10 64-bit DVD in UEFI Boot Mode, then UEFI firmware run \efi\microsoft\boot\cdboot.efi file.

The Asus motherboard default UEFI firmware settings (see screenshots below).

Windows 7/8/10 64-bit will be able to be installed successfully in UEFI Boot Mode.

CSM (Compatibility Support Module) > Launch CSM
- [Auto]: The system automatically detects the bootable devices and the add-on devices.
- [Enabled]: For better compatibility, enable the CSM to fully support the non-UEFI driver add-on devices or the Windows UEFI mode.
- [Disabled]: Disable the CSM to fully support the Windows Security Update and Security Boot.

Secure Boot > OS Type
- [Windows UEFI Mode]: Execute the Microsoft Secure Boot check. Only select this option when booting on Windows UEFI mode or other Microsoft Secure Boot compliant OS.
- [Other OS]: Get the optimized function when booting on Windows non-UEFI mode, Windows Vista/XP, or other Microsoft Secure Boot non-compliant OS.

After the Windows 8/10 64-bit installation is completed, you can check if Secure Boot option is enabled in the UEFI firmware. Run the following command as administrator from the command prompt.

powershell confirm-SecureBootUEFI

The result should be True.






Microsoft designed Secure Boot to protect the computer from low-level exploits and rootkits and bootloaders. A security process shared between the operating system and Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI, replacing the BIOS), Secure Boot requires all the applications that are running during the booting process to be pre-signed with valid digital certificates. This way, the system knows all the files being loaded before Windows 8/10 loads and gets to the login screen have not been tampered with.

If a bootloader has infected your computer and it tries to load during the boot-up sequence, Secure Boot will be able to undo all the changes and thwart the attack. Having Secure Boot means it is that much harder for attackers to try to compromise the start up sequence.




   Tip
Asus UEFI setups allow for both UEFI and Legacy BIOS (aka CSM) booting to be enabled. In that case, Windows 7 can normally be booted with the motherboard's Secure Boot feature enabled as well, but without actually using it.

Note: If you are dual booting Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 8/10 64-bit.

You must select the following option.

Secure Boot > OS Type > Other OS (default: Windows UEFI mode).

Or you get the following error message when you... Read more

We are now migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10.With windows 7 we were running legacy BIOS. Now with Windows 10 it is UEFI and Secure Boot on all machines before deployment of operating system. I have configured the BIOS settings exactly as i wanted on one machine.

A:STILL cannot boot a non-UEFI CD on my UEFI Win 7 64-bit - any fix ??

Update - I have now made TWO bootable CDs of Macrium Reflect. These two CDs show the problem.

First, in my old Dell Optiplex 755 Win XP Pro SP3 32-bit machine, I installed Macrium Reflect Free and made a bootable CD with the included Win PE. I assume it will boot in my XP machine. However, that CD will NOT boot in my other PC, which is my Dell Optiplex 7010 MT that dual-boots Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit, even though the BIOS in this Dell Optiplex 7010 MT ENABLES Legacy ROMs.

Second, in that other PC (my Dell Optiplex 7010 MT that dual-boots Win 7 Pro SP1 64-bit and Win 10 Pro 64-bit), I again installed Macrium Reflect Free (with 64-bit architecture) and made a new bootable CD (with the lowest level of Win PE, which is 3.1), and that CD WILL boot in that second machine.

Why are we being tortured this way? I have other bootable CDs from my XP days - is there any way to get them to boot in the second (Win 7 Pro 64-bit) PC?

Thanks.
