From the Dell community: "The system will not complete POST without a working internal screen attached. You will need to replace the display panel." That said, if you plug in the display again, the OS might not "know" it's broken and POST (though hidden). If it's just the back-light that's broken, you might be able to see a very dim, ...

The *.EFI files are in the "EFI System Partition" – which is (almost always) FAT32-formatted and therefore needs to be separate from the NTFS-formatted Windows "C:" partition. It could be that when you installed Windows, it found an existing EFI System Partition on the "secondary" HDD and just placed all files there – so your &...

If your system is configured to boot Windows in UEFI style, then there should be a partition on a GPT-partitioned disk, formatted as FAT32, and with a partition type GUID that marks it as an EFI System Partition, or ESP for short. It should be typically sized between 100 and 260 MB. The partition is normally hidden and does not have a drive letter, so its ...

Things may have improved since this was originally posted. It seems that Windows 8 and above will recognize an Opal drive (with some restrictions. One of which seems to be a UEFI BIOS See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/hardware/design/dn653989(v=vs.85) ) According to Microsoft https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/...

ended up reinstalling Arch, making /dev/sdb (my SSD partition) a GPT one, used systemd-boot and grub and it seems to be working now… I dont really know what was the problem but using efibootmgr and setting up systemd-boot somehow made grub work again This post helped me a lot https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=219587

How can I enable the UEFI/legacy option? You cannot. Your hardware does not support Compatibility Support Module (CSM). Your device has a 10th generation Intel Core processor, per Intel's announcement in July 2020, your processor was only validated to support UEFI. Intel previously announced that in 2020 they are phasing out support for legacy Basic Input/...

I suspect the AMT features were deliberately turned off by the OEM, because server motherboards (which SuperMicro specializes in) typically include a discrete management controller (BMC) which provides KVM-over-LAN and various other remote access features. Some of those features (e.g. remote power or serial console) are provided through the standard IPMI 2.0 ...

You can prevent reinstalling Windows on your laptop. Keep control of your laptop. Have a very strong Disk and Computer Login (not operating system) password so that 99% of people simply cannot access. You can also have a supervisor password on your BIOS but don't ever forget that. The "login" password protect basic BIOS access. Person cannot ...

I mounted and boot from my Windows HDD, went to control panel > security and update > recovery > restart which allowed me to choose booting from a USB device. Basically, the problem that my keyboard can't work before loading into a login screen persists, but at least now I have a way to bypass BIOS to boot from my USB.

So how comes I am booting from BIOS Most UEFI systems (except for some extremely new ones) have a "Compatibility Support Module" (aka "CSM mode" aka "Legacy boot") which allows them to emulate the traditional BIOS boot process. When an OS is booted in this mode, the EFI System Partition is not used (the disk's bootsector is ...

You're misunderstanding now. Your partitioning shows a separate /boot partition, with type BIOS. As per the Arch Wiki page I linked earlier, this indicates the installation was made useing GPT partitioning table for a system with legacy BIOS. Since it was made this way, /sys/firmware/efi doesn't exist, and dmesg can't find anything about EFI either. ...

So the disks are GPT partitioned, but your system uses legacy BIOS, not UEFI. As per https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/GRUB#GUID_Partition_Table_(GPT)_specific_instructions: The BIOS Boot partition GUID should be 21686148-6449-6E6F-744E-656564454649 (check blkid). If it is, install GRUB manually: # grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sda Then make the grub ...

Windows 11 is not out yet. Enter a case with Windows Insider Windows 11 forum. (Feedback Hub). Update the computer BIOS to see if that works. You need UEFI and Secure Boot both to run Windows 11. Follow up: You need to be using UEFI (which is now very common and I assumed this) and so when you re-install as you say you will, let the Windows 10 ...

What you should do is restart to your BIOS default settings. Unplug you PC power and ethernet cable. Press/hold the startup button for 15 seconds. Open your PC, find and then remove the motherboard battery (might be located under the graphics card if you don't see it). Press/hold the startup button for 30 seconds. Re-install the battery Open you PC! Be sure ...

If your keyboard has Sound Off key, you may use it before shutdown, and it may stay in effect after the boot. If the above does not apply to your computer model, then there is no software solution. Note that silencing the beeper may also prevent notifications if other errors arrive.

Thanks all for your help, but the solution turned out to be that you have to install Samsung Magician before you restart the PC. It must contain drivers and other stuff that Windows needs to get it working. No idea why it isn't documented anywhere that the drive will not work without it.

CPU: Intel Pentium 1 .... RAM: 2 GB That is not nearly enough memory overall. The CPU is weak as well, even for Windows 7. Add memory (8 GB minimum) and then see if the problem disappears. You need more RAM if you expect to use it also for shared memory. What you have is not enough for that. You may need to upgrade the computer.

I just understood what has gone wrong. When I built my computer I buyed all the components except the graphics card (because I didn't want to use half of by budget for it) so I used an old graphics card (nvidia quadro fx 580) and I just realized that the graphics card doesn't support UEFI. So I am just doing to wait until I can afford a graphics card.

In my location (US) you can get VGA cables from eBay or thrift stores for next to nothing. I just looked on eBay and saw them selling for $1. Alternatively, you can post in a forum on the internet or in an app on your phone to find someone local area who can let you borrow/have one.

I'm rebuilding an old PC and the BIOS was reset to factory settings so now it's trying to connect to a VGA monitor instead of a HDMI . BIOS has to recognize the screen. In this case, it is the VGA screen it must recognize. It cannot see the HDMI screen. So your option is limited to finding (friend or some other way) from whom you can borrow a VGA cable and ...

The address bus width determines the size of the physical address space. But not all the values within this space are claimed by memory controllers. Some are claimed by other types of devices. The BAR register implicitly encoded the address range size requested by the PCIe device/function. But where the base of this range is must be properly configured. Then ...

As all the software was updated, and as the laptop is new and its airways do not need cleaning, it's probably working as well as can be expected. The temperature of 55 Celsius is not worrisome at all. Such a low temperature should not even cause any throttling. You should only start getting worried when it nears 90 degrees. Laptops, and especially the modern ...

Got a new (old) PC, and every time I try to power it on, it posts, goes through bios, then before trying to load windows, Tests prove the drive is OK, and it may be that Secure Boot is preventing starting with USB. So get a new copy of Windows and install that. That should very likely work. The existing install has likely been damaged and never repaired. A ...

Try an alternative OS that can run from the USB drive, without needing the HDD -- that would allow you to try to salvage files from the HDD, and to try to troubleshoot the boot issue with various disk repair tools. Just change boot order, and be sure to disable Fast Startup or Quick Boot in BIOS, or the PC will continue trying to recover data from the HDD on ...

Finally I've found out what was going on. When I first installed Windows, I've turned off its fast boot options. However, probably due to an update, this feature was turned on again without me knowing it. When I disabled it, I could get inside UEFI again. So, if this is happening to you, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options > ...

The .s12 is the signature file of the .bin file (see source and guide). You need them both to apply the HP BIOS image. The .s12 file is a binary file, so it looks like an encrypted file.

I updated to the latest bios version but there is no option to change the vram memory. In Amd Radeon software it shows me that Vega 8 graphics has 2 gb ram memory and also there is no option to modify it.
