Q: Is there a way to Flash BIOS to support UEFI secureboot?

I have Dell XPS L502x (i7, 8GB, 750GB, 2GB nVidia GT 540m) with Intel Huron River HM67 Chipset.Win7 Home Premium x64.
I have classical BIOS with no secureboot.
Can I use the new UEFI feature which supports secureboot, GPT disks, multiple primary partitions, etc.

Preferred Solution: Is there a way to Flash BIOS to support UEFI secureboot?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there!

I don't believe there is an easy way to do it. But your best bet would be here (UEFI) Dell XPS 15z L511z modded BIOS - and HOWTO

Hi,I'm trying to deploy Windows 10 Enterprise using SCCM via PXE boot.
I can't find any way to do that with UEFI and Secure Boot enabled. No option to PXE boot at all with UEFI enabled it seems. I've updated to BIOS version A20.I can PXE boot and deploy Windows using Legacy mode, but it's not ideal (I want Secure Boot running on the machine to prevent Bitlocker exploits!!)
Isn't it possible to PXE boot the E7440 with UEFI and Secure Boot enabled?
RegardsP-H

A:E7440 PXE boot with UEFI and SecureBoot?!

I'm not sure that this goes for the E7440, but on the Latitude 7480 you will need to activate the UEFI network stack, to get this to work.
On the 7480 that setting is found under System Configuration -> Integrated NIC.
It's a checkbox called "Enable UEFI Network Stack"

OK, here is the issue: My UEFI/SecureBoot enabled computers (Lenovo ThinkPad T430s, T440s, T440p, X230, X240, all 64bit) that are booting from WDS only get a 640x480 display resolution.
I'm using the unmodified WinPE 5 from ADK 8.1 but I have the same issue with WinPE 4 from ADK 8.0. Booting this WinPE 5 wim from USB results in a native (based on EDID, 1920x1080) resolution which is expected. Booting the same wim from WDS (tried 2008 R2
and 2012) I only get 640x480. Even after adding display drivers and providing an answer file the resolution stays at 640x480 when bootign from WDS.
As soon as I go back to BIOS or turn on CSM support with UEFI enabled, the display resolution is 1024x768 (no change on the WinPE wim, just different BIOS settings).
So, the question is, does anybody here boot a UEFI/SecureBoot enabled computer from WDS with the original WinPE 4/5 and gets more than 640x480?
Thanks,
Dirk

A:Anybody trying to deploy a UEFI/SecureBoot based computer with WDS?

Hi, 
Based on my research, Once UEFI has determined which display is enabled to display the pre-operating system screen, it must select the mode to apply based on the logic in this article: 
UEFI GOP mode Test
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh997769.aspx 

In your situation, it seem that in UEFI, display resolution is by default to set as 640*480.
As I known, MDT has integrated some scripts can bypass this.

Hello I have several laptops models (Elitebook 820 G2; Elitebook 850 G2; EliteBook Folio 9470m; Zbook 17 G2) which don't want to boot in WinPE from the Windows Boot manager if SecureBoot is enabled. Other Models like EliteBook Folio 1040 G1; ProBook 650 G1 works fine with enbaled UEFI and Secure Boot !!! In my case I boot the UEFI computers with a USB stick and download the WinPE to the Windows Boot Manager (by MDT, confgmgr, SCCM]. But once the bootimage is on the systems and restart the computer to boot from the local Windows Boot Manager, it fails. A message appears: "No bootable image found, notebook will shutdown" But WinPE was successfully downloaded into OS Boot Manager. I've checked the configuration with Bcdedit too.USB Stick is formated with FAT32 and the local local disk is GPT. All looks good.  Interessting point is that if I login to the BIOS now and change the Secure Boot to "disable" the computer boot in WinPE immediately. All Laptops have latest BIOS version. I've tried BIOS Factory defaults, Clear Secureboot Keys and Security defaults. Nothing changed if UEFI and Secure Boot is enabled. It seems there are different SecureBoot checks implemented in different laptop models. Has anyone a solution, similar experiences or an explanation ?? Thanks a lot in advance

Just briefly I have reason to believe a malicious attack occur on my local system taking the last.

I have noticed several log files attempting to and eventually changing critical properties system wide, it a nut shell I believe someone is trying(nearly complete) to grant superuser right to every thing on my local drive. including flashing the bios into boot memory, no located externally on a network i have no access too

I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what if any services files and general system measures I need to secure my root folder on my local hard disk and have prevented something similar previously and recovered system structure for a period. But it continue to have insecure elements and processes

I am little bit of a novice at system security on win 8 and hope for some skill advice and guidance to back up a clean boot able recovery disk and protect bios, restore access to several important person data folders remotely store on an unrecognised external network

I would have to see those longs in question. You have Windows 8 Pro? If you go to "Local Users and Groups" are there any extra users there that you never made yourself? And are there any "Superusers" in thew Groups list? By default, there are no "Superusers".

We use WMI to set BIOS settings in an automated enviroment where we deploy 100:s of Lenovo computers on a weekly basis. We have been using the WMI-function to do this with great success during the last few years. Now the M900 model is released and we realised that alot of settings changed name from SecurityChip to Security Chip which forced us to build special customisation to handle this (Lenovo has kept the same names consistently for the last four to five years). I have managed to figure out most settings via the ListAll.vbs-script that calls for all settable settings in the BIOS via WMI. I even tried with the official BIOS backup utility but it returns the same result. Secure Boot is not possible to set any more. I have tried founding it in other options but it is not listable as a possible setting via WMI any more. I can of course set it via the BIOS setup utility manually but that is not a feasible solution when deploying hundreds of computers. We have it automated on all other Lenovo models since the last few years, even the new ThinkPad X260, T460s, X1 and so on is working perfectly. All except the M900 model! We desperatly need help to be able to set this setting for our deployment center! Regards,Henrik

2. Update to latest BIOS.

All i get is the UEFI empty blue screen, no menus/options, just blank screen...

Hi HP experts, I have been reading about UEFI and Gpt partition versus Mbr partition, and from what i understand about these subjects - the Gpt partition is to prefer if the laptop supports UEFI, because the laptop boots faster, but is that the only thing thats better about it ?I found the driver page for my Envy, and found out that under help program/tools, there were a program named HP UEFI-support (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) . Now i am not quite sure if this means that my Envy supports everything about UEFI, because in my BIOS i dont seem to be able to find anything named UEFI ? But if i press F2 during bootup, i do get a menu wiith for example the opportunity to reverse to an older version of BIOS, and 4 or 5 other options to see what my laptop consists of.I also ran the CMD tool, and ran the diskpart and list disk commands, and the partition is not listed as Gpt, but Mbr, because there aint no * under Gpt column, and i think the only way i could make a clean install for several months ago, was to set the Rufus usb boot tool to Mbr, and then clean install Windows. If and only if you mean that i can gain anything by going the Gpt and UEFI way, by setting Rufus up to make the usb bootable this way, shouldnt i then just reformat to Gpt with CMD with these commands in the order : Diskpart-list disk-select disk-clean , and then shut down the Envy and run the usb drive ?  Further more i suppose the recovery file i made and saved with Ma...

I don't have a similar machine to check so I can't tell you exactly where in the BIOS configuration you'd find that setting.  Probably under "security" or similar.
 
You can get to BIOS by doing a full shutdown (SHIFT + shutdown if Win 8x or 10, just shutdown if Win 7) and then pressing the Novo button.
 
Several Linux distros can boot in secure mode - Ubuntu for instance - so if you are using one of those it shouldn't be necessary to change the setting.

Hello SF members,

I see today uEFI is very popular, a lot of people use it...
I have ASUS P8H61-M LX2 (it have modern BIOS utility, etc. ).

So, does my mobo support uEFI?

And what is pros and cons of uEFI? I found that I need GPT formated HDD and GPT isn't recommend for HDD who have less than 2.2TB.

If my mobo support it, does I need anything other?

Trinty

A:Does my mobo support uEFI?

uefi are the modern kinds of BIOS. They are better than older generation BIOS and their more obvious feature is that they have fancy graphics, they don't look like old DOS stuff. Most other things are "better" but from a customer point of view, there isn't a lot to talk about. It supports newer standards like GPT, and other modern stuff that wasn't possible with older generations of BIOS.

As for what you are saying about GPT, afaik UEFI can boot from GPT drives, but work fine with normal (MBT) drives as well. Who said that you need to use only GPT?

According to the product specs here, your BIOS is uefi already.

In any case, you can do nothing about it, as it's the manufacturer that decides what BIOS each board will have.

Hello everybody!

I'm sorry if this topic has been posted earlier, I searched with no luck.

For years I used a utility CD based on BartPE with several programs
that allowed me to Live boot windows XP off of a CD and manipulate the
hard drives on a computer. Since newer systems operate with AHCI/RAID

PE utility image has run into a compatibility brick wall!

I am now in search of a similar utility CD, DVD, or USB image that
will allow me to boot externally from the affected system's OS and
manipulate the data on its drives. Can anybody recommend a utility ISO
or USB image that will allow me to access AHCI/RAID or GPT Based
drives? I would also like for the utility to have UEFI support and be
able to access a network.

Your time is extremely appreciated!

A:Looking for a New BartPE w/ AHCI-GPT & UEFI Support...

Do a search on the web for Hirens Boot CD. Also vist the link I am posting, which is a roll your own WinPe evironment.

Hirens is a linux solution which works for me.

The WinPe route takes some work but I really like using it. The web site has apps already written so that you can add programs to your boot environment.

I have an Asrock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 Motherboard with Radeon RX480 graphics with Windows 10 installed on a Kingston. I am tempted to set the system on Ultra Fast on the Fast boot options in the bios but according to someone elses post on another forum, you need to make sure that the graphics card VBIOS can support UEFI GOP. I would just like to confirm what Ultra Fast actually does and if the graphics card can support this so i can determine if it's a good idea to set it to Ultra fast.

Cheers for any replies

Is it possible to update Z400 Workstation BIOS to support UEFI?

A:UEFI support on Z400 Workstation

Hi, I haven't seen any documentation on the Z400 for UEFI support.  Most of the Intel X58 chipset PCs don't support UEFI although there is one vendor that advertises a hybrid EFI. UEFI generally requires addtional ROM space beyond the needs of the bios.

This is a less snarky variant of a previous topic of mine. I apologize for the overlap. I have an M90p machine type model 5536A86 currently running Windows 10. Certain updates of Windows 10 (including, but not limited to current build 1511) alter the partition table of the system drive during the update. For some users running BIOS/MBR partitioning, the process fails, rendering the system partition unreadable. I am one of those. I would like to try using GPT partitioning, but can't get my M90p to boot a GPT formatted USB drive, though the same port will boot an MBR drive with the same content. I have the latest firmware version 5JKT65A installed, called "Flash UEFI BIOS update" on this support page: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Desktops-and-all-in-ones/ThinkCentre-M-Series-desktops/Thin... My machine is out of warranty and I therefore cannot ask Lenovo any questions about it directly, nor have I found documentation directly addressing the question. I am at wit's end and will have to discard the machine if it cannot be made stable. GPT seems my best hope. Can anyone confirm or deny that this device is UEFI capable?

Favorite USB rescue with UEFI GPT support etc.?

That pretty much says it. At the moment I'm relying on a USB with Macrium Reflect Free. But I would like to get something going for running utilities from a bootable USB.

A:Favorite USB rescue with UEFI GPT support etc.?

Macrium Reflect Standard version.

I recently updated the bios, for first time after purchase. It was purchased in 2009.
After I updated bios, I got lots of new options in the bios menu.
Like Core Multiplexing, CPU fan control, Usb port disabling, Hard disk predelay, Expansion card text, XD technology, Intel VT, Booting USB devices.

So, I don't know anything about all above things.
Does my mobo support uefi boot for Windows 8.

A:Does this motherboard Intel DG41RQI support UEFI?

Imran I don't know but am very doubtful unless they have made some spectacular advances for that board which is getting on in years.
Now the BIOS update might have been made up to include those features but to give you some idea of the different types see pics - the blue one is the one I think you will have the other darker one is the EUFI type.

I wondered if my computer supports UEFI or not. I would like to install Windows 10 with UEFI configuration but my BIOS config doesn't have "Secure Boot" or "Disable Legacy Boot".

A:Does my Vostro 3500 support UEFI boot?

Press the WIN+R keys to open the Run prompt, type "MSInfo" and hit enter. Look for the "BIOS Mode" and it will shown as "UEFI" if your computer supports UEFI.
If you want to install Windows 10 with UEFI, you can use the freeware ISO2Disc to create a GPT bootable USB from Windows 10 ISO.
