Installation :: Booting DVD In UEFi Mode For Windows Install

Sep 1, 2015

How do I set my BIOS to have the DVD boot and install Windows 10 in UEFI mode? I do see a setting on my Asus motherboard UEFI "CSM Compatability" and in there are three options:

UEFI and Legacy OPROM
Legacy OPROM only
UEFI only

Do I select UEFI only option here?

What is the benefit of installing in UEFI vs Legacy? All I understand is that the system sets up more partitions.

Installation :: Windows Won't Boot In UEFI Mode - Deleted EFI Partition

Aug 25, 2015

Okay, so the other week i received a new Clevo P650SE laptop. The laptop only had a 500GB 7200RPM HDD with Windows 10 to begin with, so yesterday i added my Samsung 840 EVO SSD. As i wanted this to now be the primary drive, i made another new installation of Windows onto here. After doing this, the system now displayed a boot selection at startup with the choice between the new Windows 10 installation on my SSD or the old one on the HDD.

As i no longer wanted to use the HDD for running Windows, i decided it would be best to delete Windows from this drive. So i booted onto an Ubuntu USB and wiped the entire drive of it's data in GParted, which included three different partitions. This seemed perfectly fine to me at the time, because i had a the new installation from the SSD showing up in the boot manager.

However, when i rebooted the machine and attempted to boot into the new installation on the SSD, it gives me this message:

"The boot configuration data from your PC is missing or contains errors.
File: /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/BC Error code: 0xc000000f"

I have tried everything to recover the system but nothing has worked. Startup repair from my Windows USB doesn't do anything, the system reset wouldn't operate because it stated that the partition was locked.

Nothing with the Command Prompt is working, I have done 'bootrec /fixmbr', 'bootrec /fixboot' and 'bootrec /rebuildbcd', but the last command returns the following error:

"The requested system drive cannot be found."

I also did 'bcdboot C:/Windows' but that also refused to work. I assumed the reason for this might be because the drive didn't have a letter, but when i attempted to add a letter is says:

"The specified drive letter is not free to be assigned."

Both drives in my laptop have now been completely wiped and converted to MBR, but even with the two drives empty the original message still appears when booting my Windows USB in UEFI.

I have only had this laptop a couple of weeks and it's already completely messed up. I can boot the Windows USB in Legacy and install Windows as normal, but of course i'm looking to have it back on UEFI as it was before.

Installation :: Will Clean Install Attempt Recognize Windows 8.1 UEFI Stored Key

Aug 4, 2015

If I create a DVD with Windows 10 Home and try to perform a clean install on a computer that came with Windows 8/8.1 Home pre-installed. Will Windows 10 Home recognize and accept my genuine Windows 8/ 8.1 Home Key stored in UEFI or firmware etc?

By Clean install I mean not updating but directly trying to install on a computer, on which Windows 10 have never been installed before.

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?

Installation :: How To Install On RAID 0 Non UEFI System

Feb 10, 2016

I've rescued an old small server(working with Red Hat enterprise -- but I can't have the OS as it's licensed by the office) from our office --was being chucked out but looks quite good to me.

4 SATA bays populated with 4X 3TB HDD's (the HDD's were mine BTW !!!). I'm thinking of using this as a NAS server - 16 GB RAM and decent Intel CPU (i3 equivalent -- good enough for media server).

The only problem is that it's MBR BIOS and I have two RAID 0 arrays consisting of 2 X 2 3TB HDD's.

Installing Windows though -- No HDD's seen !!! yet there's 12 TB of them in the system.

The RAID is onboard --not a separate RAID controller.

Should I remove the HDD's and send the server on it's original journey to a one way trip to the City's TIP.

(On board VGA good enough also for running a GUI - if I can ever install an OS on it -- preferably W10).

Installation :: Can't Install Update - UEFI Error?

Dec 23, 2015

So, I have Windows 10 already installed on my PC. I upgraded it last Summer from Windows 7 for free.

I've been trying to update it for the past 6 weeks but keep getting the error: "Windows 10 couldn't be installed. Windows can't be installed because this PC has an unsupported desk layout for UEFI firmware."

I have 3 hard drives and Win10 is running on my main SSD, disk 0. I remember having some funky upgrade issues and needed to unplug certain hard-drives due to strange ownership issues. Heres is a look from Disk Management. I've got an MSI m-board plus BIOS, all new.

Installation :: How To Install UEFI On Dell Inspiron 15 7559

Feb 23, 2016

As the title says how exactly do you achieve this?

I have an ISO Ran RUFUS 2.6
GPT Partition Scheme for UEFI
Fat 32
8192 Default
X Quick Format
X Create a bootable disk using
X Create Extended label and Icon Files

so the next part is the Kicker Dell did a number on their Bios and rather than using standard logic as we have done so many years just setting the boot order to "Boot USB" first, you "Only" have the option to create a "Boot Program"!!! so you select your USB Drive then which ever file you want it to boot I'm Assuming? So I tried selecting Setup, bootmgr.efi, and autorun with no results!

I get the secured boot error crap, turn that off and I get Legacy BIOS (that defeats the entire point) What the hell happened to Win95 Boot Discs and FDISK?

I am so frustrated with this garbage, I found out the hard way with Windows 10 and trying to nuke the SSD and put a clean install of 8.1 on it.

Dell Inspiron 15 5559 / UEFI Booting From DVD?

Dec 27, 2015

I had been under the impression that if you had a PC with UEFI (instead of the legacy BIOS), you couldn't boot from a CD or DVD drive. Having just gotten my first PC with UEFI, I was delighted to find this Dell article on how to do it here:


I followed that procedure on my new Dell Inspiron 15 5559 laptop, and booted Linux Mint successfully from the DVD I have it on. One of the considerations is that you have to disable "secure boot". Not ever having had that before, I didn't hesitate to do that. I imagine that would be a handy feature if you were worried about boot sector viruses, but I've never seen but one instance of one in 35 years of working with PCs, and that was on a neighbor's PC. I also noticed that booting was considerably faster.

Installation :: Keeps Booting From USB After Clean Install

Aug 2, 2015

I got a HP Notebook yesterday that had Windows 8.1 on it. Today I decided I wanted to reinstall Windows 10 (not upgrade, but clean install) on it and I do have experience in reinstalling operating systems. I reinstalled Windows 10 from a USB stick and when the computer restarted after the installation was done, it would keep booting from the USB stick. I exited the installation screen and then went to the BIOS to change boot priority to "OS Manager", but all I got was an error which I don't remember what it said, and then it just restarted again.

So my question is, how can I get Windows 10 to boot after is has installed and restarted?This is my laptop: HP 15.6 Laptop - Black (Intel Celeron N3050 / 500GB HDD / 4GB RAM / Windows 8.1) : Laptops - Best Buy Canada

Installation :: How To Install Win 7 On Second HD For Dual Booting

Feb 10, 2016

I have Windows 10 installed on HD1 (Samsung) and working will. I had a second HD2 (WD) with Win7 installed for a dual boot operation. For some reason, I could never successfully boot into Win7. Out of frustration I decided to format the Win7 drive and start over.

The problem now is I cannot install Win7 on the HD2 drive. When I choose F12 on boot up and select the WD disk, a screen appears saying "Windows Boot Manager" It instructs me to insert my Win7 install disk an reboot.

Next steps:

I insert the Win7 install disk and reboot using F12 to select the WD disk. The "Windows Boot Manager" screen appears again with the same instructions as above! If I reboot again and do nothing, the system will boot to Windows 10.

My question, how to install Win7 on the WD disk and then setup a dual boot operation?

Installation :: Dual Booting With Windows 8.1?

Jul 17, 2015

I have the ESD for Windows 10 built 10240 . I need to clean install it on a different drive and dual boot it with Windows 8.1. Can I simply boot with the 10 ISO (in UEFI boot) and clean install it on a different drive?

Would I then be able to dual boot it with my activated 8.1 copy?

Installation :: Added SSD Drive For Windows Only But Desktop Keeps Booting From Old HD

Apr 14, 2016

So I've recently bought an SSD Drive soley for the purpose of running Windows. The original Hard Drive was a 2TB Samsung drive that I have since formatted and using for Storage only. Installed Windows 10 on the SSD and the machine is working great, boots up in aound 10 seconds from turning the machine on.

Now heres my issue. For some reason if i turn my PC on and do nothing it will show the message no operating system found press ctrl, alt + del to restart. This is because its still looking to my original 2TB Drive to boot up. So basically I have to tap F something everytime i turn my machine on and select the SSD from the list.

Here is where things get weird. I have gone into the bios and have the choice of what the machine boots up with, so again i can select my SSD. The problem is the section where I can set the boot order default is only showing my 2TB Hard drive and the Blu-Ray drive, the SSD doesnt appear in that list. So it appears in one time boot options but not in the boot priority list so I cant set it as the default Drive.

Safe Mode ony allows login via the normal password and not the pin, so I nol longer have accessto my PC.

How can I get the PC to start in normal mode.

Booting Into Safe Mode From A Cold Boot?

Mar 2, 2016

Upon attempting to perform a fresh install of my display drivers using DDU, I somehow managed to permanently blue screen Windows 10 (Error: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED). So every time I try to boot into my OS, I get a constant blue screen of death, resulting in my computer to continuously restart and blue screen.

So now I'm trying to boot into safe mode from a cold boot, is there a way that I can access Advanced Options without requiring to boot into the OS itself?I'd like to create a recovery disk with a flashdrive, but I do not have an alternate computer that runs Windows 10, just a MacBook Pro

Installation :: Cannot Install Windows Update And Install DVD Won't Boot (to Repair)

Nov 14, 2015

My computer is trying to install Update to Windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586, but can't. It claims there is no system reserved partition, but there is. This computer was upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, and immediately after doing that I installed a Samsung SSD and migrated the system to it using the software that came with the SSD. The migration went well and I've been using Windows 10 for months.

All of a sudden, when trying to do some updates it claims it cannot update the system reserved partition. The partition is there, it's 100MB in size. So I tried booting from the install CD, which I burned to do the upgrade (so I know it's a good disc). My computer recognizes there's a disc in the DVD drive, but no matter how I set the bios boot order it will not boot from the DVD, so I can't do a repair on the SSD.

Changing BIOS Legacy To UEFI With Clean Install?

Sep 14, 2015

I have a Toshiba that I wanted to run Windows 10 Pro, the OEM was Home; I have Windows 7 Pro and decided to install that and do the upgrade and then a clean install, I needed to run Legacy Mode to install Windows 7, after the install and upgrade I wanted to change it to UEFI but since that isn't possible to do without doing a clean install or a recovery media device, I can't and don't want to do that.

If I do a clean install of Windows 10 Pro, from a USB and delete all partitions, will Windows 10 activate?

I have done so on my desktop, it has worked, BUT when I did it on my Toshiba after it activated to Windows 10 Home, it failed to activate during the clean install. What are the chances it won't activate this time? The process from Windows 7 to 10 isn't fast and I don't want to have to do that again..

Stop Booting Into Safe Mode - Without Laptop Screen

Dec 31, 2015

I have a Lenovo P580 laptop. The screen wire got shorted out, so I just always connected it to a TV and never really had a problem. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1. After getting that issue with the start menu and cortana not working, I tried the make another profile, etc stuff from the internet. I changed my laptop to always load into safe mode using command prompt... NOW, every time it loads up, it loads into safe mode... only problem is I can't see it or do anything because the output for my tv doesn't work.

So... I bought a new wire for the laptop screen... nothing. Bought a new screen... nothing. So I assume the motherboard is damaged... The HDMI and VGA ports worked up till I set it to boot into safe mode...

Is there anything I can do? short of replacing the motherboard?

Software Settings Lost After Booting Into Safe Mode?

Sep 1, 2015

A couple days ago I used safe mode to fix a startup program causing a bsod. Possibly worth noting: I had to use a bootable Windows 10 USB, use the repair options, enter the "BCDEDIT /SET {DEFAULT} BOOTMENUPOLICY LEGACY" command, to then use F8 to access boot options and safe mode.

The problem I'm facing now is some other (not all, fortunately), unrelated programs (or apps or whatever MS feels it's trendy to call them) are showing up as if they were just installed. Anything that's user settings was reset.

I don't regularly use safe mode, so my questions are:

- Is safe mode known for resetting software to default/factory settings?
- If yes, what would be an efficient way to prevent it? Maybe backup the relevant data and restore it after using safe mode?
- If safe mode does not reset anything, what could have caused my settings to be lost in the Warp? Enabling the "legacy" (F8-friendly) boot shouldn't have anything to do with this... right?

Most notably, Launchy and BitTorrentSync were reset to "just installed" state. There might be more I just didn't run yet.

Installation :: Apple MBP / UEFI Installation Won't Boot After Image Apply

Aug 25, 2015

last few hours I spent trying to manually deploy Windows 10 on clean GPT disk but after applying image and rebooting I always end in unbootable state.

I manually setup drive like this:


select disk 0cleanconvert gptcreate partition primary size 350 #RE tools won't fit 300MB anymore :-)format quick fs ntfs label "Windows RE tools"assign letter tset id de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6acgpt attributes 0x8000000000000001create partition efi size 100format quick fs fat32 label Systemassign letter screate partition msr size 128create partition primary format quick fs ntfs label Windowsassign letter wlist volumeexit#no recovery image partition as per documentation it is no longer needed and followed by pretty common deployment:

eagentc /setreimage /path T:RecoveryWindowsRE /target w:Windows

After reboot I always end unbootable (as we talk Apple computer it means 1) no partition on Option or 2) folder with ? or 3) just gray screen, make your pick). There's a chance that Windows rely on some UEFI 2.0 feature, which is not available as the old guy has 1.2 only. Or maybe I missed some step somewhere.
