I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3552 (the installed OS is Linux 14.04 LTS). When I attempt to go into the BIOS setup screen I receive the warning message:

Warning! Model Name selection is required.
Navigate to Security tab to select Model Name.
The Model Name can be found on a label on the bottom of the system.

The BIOS screen does have a Security tab, but there is no Model Name field on it.

Googling this message returns a YouTube video which instructs the user to reflash the BIOS, which I have tried with no effect. The only other result I could find which suggested a solution was a forum post in Russian which appears to suggest extracting the ROM image from the BIOS update and installing it manually; I was not able to follow this past step 1.

Are there any other possible fixes for this issue?
