Reflashing the motherboard BIOS through Gigabyte's Q-Flash resolved the issue by resetting Secure Boot to off. I used another computer to download the BIOS code file onto a USB, plugged it into a labeled port on the backplate, and held the Q-Flash button for a bit. Search up if your mobo has this, and many guides should exist.

I have resolved this problem on my own. These were the steps. In my case, I had Windows 7 installed in EFI mode. VirtualBox does not support Windows 7 in EFI mode, so I moved to VMware. Export the live Windows operating system using VMware's vCenter Converter tool. In the VMware host, create a new virtual machine selecting "I will install the ...

I had some problems with bcdedit /set {DEFAULT.EN_US} device partition=c So I did bcdboot d:\windows as per @ Ben L It resulted in duplicate entries but it booted finally. It also led me to the problem I had which was the drive letter of bootmgr partition not being unknown (I think). Several posts suggested "boot" or C: which is incorrect for me. ...

As there was no big enthusiasm to provide suggestions here I decided to to have a go at this by trial and error. I had a small suspicion that legacy BIOS boot was not doing me any favors here, so I decided to convert my Debian install to UEFI. This is what I did: Boot from a Debian live CD, create EFI partition, then: mount -t efivarfs none /sys/firmware/...

My Surface Pro 7 did the same. Trying to fix by continuously powering on the device until the battery dies. (following this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef8AOXycZm8&list=PLNgJJI6FeVDSUKVejJZsjwWnBGHA_lJw8&index=2)

1.Delete the other hard disks in the startup item, only leave the original HDD(WD 1TB Blue). 2.Then we enable "fast boot". 3.We set "SATA SUPPORT" as "Last Boot HDD Only". And here I am December 2021 looking to solve this issue that's plagued me for years. I tried this suggestion and it worked perfectly. Thank you.

I was trying to install Windows 11 on my hard drive which had already an EFI partition - goal was trying to dual boot Windows 10 and Windows 11. The installer kept spitting out the error "Windows could not update Boot configuration" no matter what I did, and it tried to create a 100MB EFI partition. Tried many different things but didn't work, but ...

old laptop:-Samsung NP300E5Z-S0AIN with broken screen But main question is how can I completely disable laptop's own display so that it don't even detect it and defaults to external only. So atleast I can see current Bios setting, if something can changed to prevent boot loop. You cannot substitute an external screen in most laptops (95% plus) and so you ...

You aren't really supposed to put ISO images on USB sticks. Linux distributions build their ISO images in a special way (using the 'isohybrid' tool) to allow for that. Their images have both an El Torito boot structure for CD/DVD boot and a MBR bootsector & an EFI System Partition for disk boot, so the firmware sees whatever it wants to see. Regular ISO ...

You are terminating power when windows is still shutting down. Even though the screen is no longer turned on, you can clearly see the fact that led lights and fans still work and slowly come to rest. As the last led goes off, you power off the switch, but windows is apparently still doing something. You have even noticed that waiting a few more seconds ...

I did the same but from a 256 GB nvme SSD to a 1TB one. I used the 'create system recovery option' in Windows 7 backup (available in Windows 10/11), wrote it to an internally attached HDD. Replaced the SSD, booted from a recovery USB stick and restored the system image. The system gave a 'Unaccessible boot device' after initial boot, and system repair could ...

Just had the same issue. Ubuntu stopped booting after the same output line. For me, the VM ran out of disk space. 2 Options worked out to get it running again: Start Ubuntu in recovery mode by presing shift right after 'VM Ware' shows up and select 'clean' to free some space. Edit your VM while shut down and provision some additional diskspace.

As a general comment, with Windows 10 you don't need to dual-boot in order to try Linux. You could instead install and use Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). If you want to also run graphical applications, upgrade to Windows 11 and ensure you're using WSL version 2. To restore the Windows 10 startup, Run a Startup Repair. You will need a boot USB for Windows ...

Hibernate is your only option and eventually you will need a fresh reboot and lose the stuff. Hibernation is a literal save of the memory to disk followed by a full system shutdown. It also has an extra step of saving device state. Unlike sleep, it doesn't require power. It is truly a shutdown. When the computer is booted next, windows checks that the ...

From the photo you added you still have the partitions meaning you can safely restore windows boot loader from recovery mode via the installation media, I recommend searching in Google or YouTube for exact instructions on "how to restore windows boot manager with recovery".

Yes. Insert you cd and boot from that cd. To boot from that cd, restart and keep typing f9 as soon as the windows logo appears. This key might be different, based on your laptop model. Now enter language and then select troubleshoot, then select command prompt and enter the command bootrec.exe /fixmbr. Now you can exit the command prompt by command exit. ...

"Windows logo appears momentarily and then the screen goes black..." - exactly the same I've got too recently. It looks like hardware problem, but it is not.

You either have bad hardware or your Windows installation is very broken. For starters, I would suggest running MemTest86 for as many hours as you can give it. If MemTest86 finds no errors, you will need to do a Repair Install. The following Windows 10 tutorial can be used (with adjustments for Windows 11): How to Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-...

Mappings are ephemeral, like mounts, and the "mapper" isn't a property of the encrypted disk – it's a component of the currently running OS. Similarly, the 'devtmpfs' filesystem that's mounted on /dev always represents mappings established on the running OS – your physical disk shouldn't even have a /dev/mapper or indeed anything else inside /dev. ...

Microsoft provides a signing service that Linux distros can use, allowing them to boot on most Secure Boot-enabled PCs.

Yes, indeed there is a small boot SSD inside the laptop. I believe reserved for fast booting of Windows OS. Then everything is working as intended: This SSD has one partition that does not contain any data that makes sense to Linux, so do not try something like fsck on it. The "Bad magic number in super-block" is exactly what is expected to happen....

I got around the error which was "not a COM32R image" and run into "can't find trk medium". When I tried to fix this by mounting the trk medium it threw me an error cause of the ntfs file-system. I assume now that it doesn't run on ntfs.

You want systemctl set-default multi-user.target which will mean no gui will start on boot. To disable the gui when already running, systemctl isolate multi-user.target systemd run levels will give you a bit more info.

You have a hardware fault. If you have spares, replace them and see if it continues. Swap the dimms around and clean the contacts. Check with your m/b manual as to what the continuous beep means.

Ok, fixed it. Leaving this if someone in the future has the same issue: I had to update the intel drivers from the intel page. Windows was stating that it had the latest ones, but that was not the case. It looks like that the windows 10 install had a basic ones that worked, but when auto updated by Windows Update, the ones that were installed did not.

Scheduled Tasks should get invoked whenever the event Trigger conditions are met.

I don't have enough rep to comment but here's some things that might be getting in the way of booting. You're UEFI chooses where to boot. It is often the case that it really tries to find and boot to Windows (the windows it boot to last time). It could be the case that you need to install mint/ubuntu, then specifically point the bios at Grub. Partition ...

If you've already followed the Asus guide to access BIOS/UEFI including their video and have not succeeded, try the following: In CMD, enter shutdown /s /t 0 and press Enter. After the PC shuts completely, hold down F2 and keep it depressed. Do not remove your finger from it. Press the Power button, while keeping F2 depressed. Do not repeatedly press it.

Try pressing any of the keys as soon as you select the boot device, I have the same problem, and I can boot by doing that. Alternatively, I have researched, and found that disabling rufus mbr fixes this, I think it is on the advanced options on rufus.

In addition to what Senor CMasMas said be so kind as to disclose your assumed figure of upper capacity limit. Old hardware may really have one. This is a rare case today.

Your disk is dead - buy a new one and install a fresh Windows version.

I own the same laptop and have had similar issues in the past. Updating to Xubuntu 20.04 fixed the issues for me, but you might find some stuff of value on that link. It's not a quick fix, but I sincerely expect that the best fix is to wait for new kernal versions.

The most simple way would be to use a Windows PE (Preinstalled Environment). It doesn't matter which version, as it is standalone like a Linux-Live-environment. While you can do it by hand it would require at least Windows 7 which you do not have. You have two options to get a recovery-environment: A. Try to use Macrium Reflect Free - it has an option to ...

Rather than starting Teams on startup, you can write a small script that first checks the time, and then starts the application. Here's an example PowerShell script.

So, I wanted to configure it such that Teams opens on startup only when I open my laptop between 7 AM - 12 PM. Is this possible? Instead of trying to manage this, set Teams to NOT start when Windows starts. Do that in Teams or in Task Manager Startup tab. Now open Teams on Demand. I do this with Teams, Zoom and Skype. Works fine.
