My ubuntu can’t log after I updated my BIOS, It only boots into Ubuntu Recovery mode? Ubuntu forums say, Check your Additional driver’s tab on Software & updates section, I check that, But it says NO Drivers available?”
I am just booting my new X1 for the first time, and went into the bios to set a bios password. I discovered a slew of security settings:
- Supervisor password
- Lock UEFI BIOS Settings (enabled/disabled)
- Password at Unattended Boot (enabled/disabled)
- Password at Restart (enabled/disabled)
- Password at Boot Device List (enabled/disabled)
- Password Count Exceeded Erro (enabled/disabled)
- Set Minimum Length (integer)
- Power-On Password
- Hard Disk1 Password (text field, need to choose “User” or “User+Master”)
So – I have the option of typing 3 distinct bios passwords (not including the OS password), and enabling or disabling it at various points in the boot cycle.
What’s a good, secure setup to use that’s still convenient? Why do I need 3 distinct BIOS passwords? Which of the checkpoints should be put on enabled ?
Also – I intend to enable full disk encryption using Bitlocker. Does it make some of these options reduntant?
I Have a dell latitude 3480 and i was wondering if i sell the laptop would i still somehow be able to track the computer from BIOS.
I have an intel compute stick that came with ubuntu 14.04, and I’m trying to access the bios so I can boot into a usb. The problem is that when pressing f2, f7, or f10 none of them lead into the bios and instead go into grub. How can I access the bios from grub or boot into a usb from grub?
When installing Linux, everything went fine until I restarted to go back to windows. GNU GRUB came up and didn’t let me boot to windows. I tried resetting the computer and going to the bios to change boot order. But when I do that everything is locked up and I can’t change anything in it. The only way to get to windows is by going through Linux bootloader first.
How do I remove Linux, GRUB and everything from that so I can boot to windows and access my BIOS again.
MOBO: ASUS Z73e (I think)
I am using an old machine which has Intel i5-2410M processor 2nd generation.
I am planning to do clean installation of Windows 10 in UEFI as recommended by Microsoft on a recently purchased SSD. I have already created a bootable Windows 10 USB using Rufus with target system as UEFI, however, I am not sure if this bootable usb will work with my machine as I am not able to find UEFI in BIOS. I also intend to install Ubuntu in a separate partition.
Can anyone help me how to set firmware settings as UEFI before proceeding with this installation?
This is the detail of the motherboard:
I have a computer having HCL Pegatron motherboard having Intel G41 Express Chipset. I also have Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 processor and 2 GB DDR2 RAM and 250 GB SATA Hard Disk. I want to run VirtualBox on my PC. For this my processor also has the Intel VT-X technology. But my BIOS does not allow me to enable it. So I need to update my BIOS to a newer version. But I can’t find support on the HCL website for this. Can someone help my to find a BIOS for my computer from a trusted source.
