Cannot Access Uefi Firmware Settings

Feb 23, 2016

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.

Drivers/Hardware :: UEFI Firmware Settings Screen?

Oct 30, 2015

I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 (32Bit), Since, I have lost access to my DVD drive. The Device Manager shows:

The drive has always been connected and worked fine with Windows 7; the hardware has never been altered or messed about with.

So I decided to check the UEFI Firmware Settings via Settings>Recovery>Advanced Set Up>Troubleshoot>Advanced Options I don't get the option to enter UEFI Firmware Settings; All I get is the System Restore, System Image Recovery, Startup Repair, Command Prompt and Startup Settings.

Toshiba Satellite M645 / UEFI Settings Not Available

Dec 21, 2015

I have a Toshiba Satellite m645 with Windows 10. I'm seriously trying everything just to access the UEFI/BIOS settings on this computer. I know that you have to go to Update & Security and reboot through the advanced settings. Then you click troubleshoot and in that menu should hold a uefi settings option but my computer just doesn't and I'm not able to press esc/f2 on startup to access bios either because that simply doesn't work. Why don't I have a uefi settings option?

Installation :: Need To Downgrade But Can't Access Settings

Sep 22, 2015

I recently upgraded to Win 10 on my laptop but it's completely broken. I boot up and sign in ok but then I just get a black screen with a cursor. The only way I can access anything is through the task manager > run new task. I've tried everything but nothing works so I want to rollback to Win 7.

But the problem is that in order to do so I need to access settings which I'm unable to. I can click the link under user controls in control panel but nothing happens. I tried a fix (Settings doesnt launch, or launches the Store instead - Microsoft Community) but it didn't work. There doesn't seem to be any way of accessing it and hence no way of rolling back.

Cannot Access The Settings For Start Menu

Feb 10, 2016

This is pretty straightforward: I cannot access the settings for the start menu. When I do a right click on the task bar and then click on "properties", I should have a "Start menu" tab in the window. The problem is : I don't have that tab.

Also, I don't have the possibility to pin apps to the start menu, this is a bit annoying.

Installation :: Making UEFI And MBR Muitiboot USB

Feb 10, 2016

I just brought a 128GB sandisk ultra usb 3.0 because as a computer tec im tired of fumbling through my tons of usb drivers to do a job. , i want my windows installers & Linux, bookable tools and such all in one usb. so i looked into multibooting usbs and came across many tools, one being SARDU. But i need a hybird UEFI/MBR boot and my laptop doesn't support uefi & legacy simultaneously only one or the other.

So using SARDU i cant see or boot from the usb unless i switch bios to legacy mode, works well because i see and can boot from all of what i have windows installers and linux distros but i have to keep switching back and forth between legacy and uefi. i was wondering if i can make the usb primarily Uefi bootable BUT also bootable for a old MBR if needed.

Installation :: How To Create UEFI Install DVD

Jan 7, 2016

I'm upgrading my mom's laptop from windows 7 to windows 10. Since my last upgrade I seem to have misplaced my USB Stick that has the UEFI Windows 10 install media on it. I do, however, have a few DVDs lying around that are large enough to make a Installation DVD. If I use the Microsoft Windows 10 Media Creation tool, will it create a UEFI Installation DVD?

Computer Won't Boot (Even Into UEFI / BIOS)

Aug 24, 2015

I have had nothing but issues, since upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8 (64). The installation within of itself was horrible. I got the continual flash on the screen, until I was able to get it into safe mode and recovered it. Then made sure drivers were updated. However, I did not upgrade my BIOs, from the information I had seen from MSFT. Didn't think twice, since they said if you were upgrading from 8 or 8.1 that should not be an issue. The system was running stable, after I did those fixes.

About 1 week ago, after a MSFT Windows automatic patch push, My monitor started not to respond during boot up. Ran some basic troubleshooting for the monitor (Ie: check plugs, check cables, check Video card). They all seemed to work fine and my system booted up normal.

The very next day, cold booted again and monitor did same thing, it was not getting any signal from the computer. Went through the checks, after a little bit of a delay the system finally booted. I checked my BIOs settings, which were all set up normally. I locked my computer after that and did not turn off the system, the next morning, my monitor was unresponsive.

I re-checked monitor, cables and even replaced the video card. Everything is good except no signal to my monitor. I disconnected all hardware except the video card and motherboard, to see if it was an issue with my power. I took out out the CMOS battery and also disconnected power to the motherboard for about 2 hours, to try and reset the BIOs to factory. No luck.

This leaves me with 2 things left:

a) Corrupted BIOs, not loading my drivers, or
b) motherboard went bad.

Going to try a bootable USB BIOs next.

UEFI Fails To Boot From USB Stick

Oct 22, 2015

Downloaded Windows 10 ISO, created a bootable flash drive using "Windows 7 USB DVD download tool" which I also got from Microsoft.

Set first boot device to USB in BIOS.

Saved changes and turned laptop off.

Turned it back on, with the flash drive plugged in, but computer boots to Windows 8.1 instead of the Windows 10 installation.

Restarted again, and pressed F9 to show a list of boot devices, it just shows OS boot manager, and DVD drive, not the flash drive.

Tried with Windows 8.1 USB installer, same thing happens.

Went back to BIOS, enabled "Legacy Mode" and turned off "Secure Boot", restarted, the computer can now boot to the USB stick.. for both Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Disabled Legacy Support, the computer fails to boot to USB devices again.

So, I cannot boot to a USB device if I have Legacy Mode disabled in my BIOS.And if I boot using Legacy Mode, Windows wants to convert my GPT HDD to MBR.

How do I boot to USB using UEFI instead of Legacy?
