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.)

I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were once set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important. Now whenever I boot up I always get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.  I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help. Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option? I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.  MUCH gratitude. GN

Hello Lenovo Forum!This is driving me mad. I bought a SATA-to-USB3 Adapter to connect my SSD and HDD from my old computer and boot from them (I want to use the Linux on it). Yet I can't figure out how to do that. Secure Boot is off, Legacy Boot is on and yet - everytime I choose the drive in the boot menu, the screen goes black, there is a short drive access, and then I'm back at the boot device menu. I don't really know what to try now. Reimaging like most other threads here suggest doesn't help in that case because it's not a simple installation medium. What I tried aswell: Attaching the Adapter via a USB2-hub to check if there might be an issue with USB3 support. When plugged into my friends X230, both drives boot up perfectly fine and he can use them just fine. Any kind of help is highly appreciated.Kind regards,Iriya EDIT: Here the BIOS Options which I think are somewhat useful:Config TabUSB UEFI BIOS Support - Enabled (Tried turning it off, didn't helpSecurity TabSecure Boot: DisabledPlatform Mode: User ModeSecure Boot Mode: Standard ModeStartup TabUEFI/Legacy Boot: BothUEFI/Legacy Boot Priority: Legacy FirstBoot Mode: QuickRestart TabOS Optimized Defaults: Disabled

Hi, Shutdown the notebook. Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to enter the Start-up Menu and then select the Bios Menu ( f10 ). Under the System Configuration tab, expand the Boot Options Menu. Here you should find the option to set Secure Boot to Disabled and Legacy Devices to Enabled. When done, press f10 and select to save the changes. You may then have to enter a 4 digit pin displayed on the screen to confirm the setting changes ( note that you will not see a display of the numbers as you enter tham ) - enter the code and hit enter. Regards, DP-K

Hello, I am having an issue with downgrading to Windows 7 and It's not nearly as easy as normally installing an OS. I get to the expanding files screen, and once the system reboots it goes back to the Windows 7 install screen. This is an issue, because it should continue with the installation. Does anybody know why this would occur or how to fix it? I'm sure there's likely something I missed. This is rather urgent, so any help would be appreciated.

Just bought a Dell Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower with Win 8 Pro 64-bit, 8 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive and an Intel i5 3470 processor. Right now, it has Dell BIOS version A16.

It is normally in UEFI ON and Secure Boot ON, so that F12 on bootup (one-time boot options) does NOT normally show the CD-DVD as a boot option. OK - no problem.

However, if I reboot with F12 and select both UEFI OFF (meaning Legacy ON) and Secure Boot OFF and reboot, then F12 DOES show me the CD-DVD as a boot option, but if I actually try to boot up from a bootable CD, I get an error message.

I have practiced with two bootable CDs - a Knoppix and an Aomei Backupper, both made on earlier machines. Both these CDs work as boot-up CDs in my old XP machine, and the Aomei Backupper CD also worked in someone else's Win 7 Pro 64-bit machine.

What's wrong?

Again, please let me repeat that I am trying to boot from the CD-DVD AFTER I have turned OFF UEFI, turned ON Legacy and turned OFF Secure Boot.

Thanks.

rdubayah,
If your computer was running WIndows 10 without any issues prior to downloading the Anniversary update, then you would not have had to change any settings in the bios to install the update.The UEFI and Secure Boot settings are to enable booting with a USB or DVD to install Windows.
Disable Legacy Boot Mode and Enable UEFI
Start the computer and TAP the F2 key to enter the bios. Once in the bios Press F9 to Restore the bios to the Default Settings. F10 to save changes and exit. You could have a hardware problem. To run a hardare diagnostics on the computer you would start the computer and TAP the F5 key. Insert a cd/dvd in the optical drive for running the diags.

A:Disable Secure Boot and enable legacy mode

@Siemen,Did you system originally have WIN 7, as listed here?   If so, the BIOS is correct at rev 7.  You can not  use the newer UEFI graphic cards because there is NO update BIOS available.  Your correct, you do not have a way to disable secure boot and enable legacy. In another post you asked, and got no answer.Yes, the GTX 660 will work, with an adequate new PSU.  Recommend EVGA GTX 600 and Corsair CX600 PSU.  On the GTX 750Ti inquiry, only chance would be the Hybrid vBIOS cards.  PSW<> The GTX 670's are a tad touchy.

Hey all I have a Touchsmart 15-d087ca. I was going through the steps to fix my phone (which is currently stuck in fastboot mode), and one of them was to disable secure boot. So I selected the disable secure boot option, but didn't enable legacy boot, which may have been an incredibly stupid thing to do. I'm not sure if this is the cause of the problem, but it seems likely. I have to admit I'm not an expert when it comes to computers. Upon pressing f10 to save changes and restart, the computer turned off, and then turned back on. But now the screen is black - the backlight is on and the machine is running, but there's nothing I can do to get away from the black screen. Obviously this kinda sucks, because now my phone and laptop are both stuck somewhere in the boot process. Am I screwed, or is there a way to fix this issue? EDIT: I have tried a hard reset, the emergency BIOS access thing where I hold windows + B + Power On, and will try taking the memory out and putting it pack in tomorrow. I'm using this instructional video to guide me

Hello,
I tried to solve an installation problem for a friend of mine by GPT and as I tried to complete the installation, I most probably made a mistake in trying to turn UEFI boot on. I invalidated the legacy boot option and now the system does not start at all, no Dell logo nor anything else. I tried to boot on several installation DVDs with no results.

Is there a way to reset the settings I made in the BIOS ?
Is there any other solutions to boot ? Is possible that, I am able to find one, an UEFI iso image could be used to start from the DVD and go on with  the installation ?
I think the BIOS version was A11 but I am not 100% sure. Anyway, I am pretty sure I did not try to boot aother BIOS.

Hello, first post here...

First, some context: I have a Dell Inspiron 15R SE that came with Windows 8.

I've managed to get a working dual-boot system with Ubuntu 12.10. I can't remember exactly how I done that, but I remember that I had to disable secure boot. I think that the boot configuration those days was:
Secure boot: DisabledLoad legacy option rom: EnabledBoot list option: Legacy

This "configuration" worked perfectly for 6-7 months.

Then, one day (last week, can't remember the exact day), when I was using Windows 8 the computer crashed. I hard-rebooted and got this screen:

I've searched a lot, looking for solutions and after executed boot-repair from a Ubuntu LiveCD dozens of times I've decided to eliminate Ubuntu temporarily and focus to get a system with Windows 8 working nice.

Then I used my recovery DVDs to recover the system. Yup, Windows has booted. But when I restarted first time I got the same error. Then I, digging a solution, pressed F12 after a reboot and got here:

The highlighted option allows me to boot into Windows 8. So I went to boot options (F2) and changed the following configuration:
Load legacy option rom: DisabledBoot list option: UEFI

Now I can boot directly to Windows without need to press F12.

But my objective isn't complete. I want to erase all Ubuntu entries from the seconds image and restore the legacy boot from the first imagem (because they worked before).

Hi all,

Here is my current situation:

Got a new HP desktop (Windows 10 Pro) with RX 580 GPU. Disabled Secure Boot in BIOS since I wanted to avoid potential issues from flashing custom GPU bios, then flashed the custom BIOS (nothing fancy, just modified some timings which worked for me in the past with another RX 580).
After rebooting it will not post and it gives 3 short beeps and 3 long beeps, which according to HP signifies that "the embedded controller has timed out waiting for BIOS to return from graphics initialization."
I tried pulling the GPU and plugging into integrated graphics via HDMI but got the same result. It could be that the integrated graphics are disabled (the ports were covered) but I can't seem to get into BIOS to check.
I tried swapping in a different GPU (not 100% it's working since I have no other PC to test with currently, but I have no reason to believe it's dead). Same result.
Tried removing and re-inserting the CMOS battery, then booted up with no GPU, then with RX 580, and then with other GPU. Same result each time.
Any suggestions as to what I should try next? I'm pretty stumped...

Microsoft has been attempting to patch a serious Secure Boot vulnerability that can be exploited to bypass the security feature and install rootkits and bootkits on Windows devices. Researchers believe the security flaw cannot be fully patched.

-

On systems where Secure Boot is locked down and cannot be disabled (e.g. Windows RT, HoloLens, Windows Phone), configuration changes can be made using policies, signed files loaded by the boot manager (bootmgr) from a UEFI variable. There are some boot loader executables (EFI files) signed by Microsoft that can be used to provision such policies.

Before loading a policy, bootmgr checks it to make sure it?s valid. However, researchers discovered that Microsoft introduced a new type of Secure Boot policy during the development of Windows 10 Anniversary Update (v1607) that can be abused to bypass the security feature.

I have an Acer Aspire M5481T with a SSD 20Gb + 500Gb HD. When I bought it, I made it dual boot resizing it partition inside Windows and then installing Ubuntu. Ok, worked fine for last months. Now, after getting some bloatware that turned my dev tools broken, I needed to make a clean Windows installation. After playing around with its SSD, I opted to use the factory restore of the system. It gave me a "clean" Windows installation but, as expected, I lost grub as the boot manager. Trying to restore it, I changed the boot mode do Legacy instead of EFI. But now, I am not able to enter BIOS again, and I don't know which is the current boot order, as it only gets "frozen" in the Acer logo with options to enter Set-up with F2 or Boot Order with F12 (but no one of this options works). I tried to start with a Windows 8 installation disk, an Ubuntu installation disk or even a bootable USB (with Windows 8 and Ubuntu), but none of this options seems to be working. Anyone knows something I can try before attempting to send it to repair? Maybe a way to reflash or reset BIOS?

After installing an HP BIOS update about a week ago I can't boot the way I've been booting the laptop. HP offered through the support assistnt application a BIOS update. After installing that update, when I boot I am taken to a blue screen that appears to be from the BIOS firmware in the laptop telling me it can't find a certain file needed to boot. It always has booted without issue before that update. I rolled back the BIOS update and it still did not boot, so I have switched to using legacy support in BIOS with the hard drive the first boot option instead of using the HP Boot Manager option. It works fine with this arrangement but I thought I'd post this here to let others know that updating their BIOS may lead to a similar issue, and also wondered if anyone has addressed this issue on their laptop. Thanks!!!Donald

Hello all,

This is my problem:

I can't get my USB drive to load while in Secure Boot mode and continue running into 'Boot Device Not Found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk' screen. The only method that works thus far is disabling Secure Boot mode and enabling Legacy
Support. Here are the methods I have tried based on extensive research of various forums after several days:

- Performed all the generic System Diagnostic tests (F2) + Memtest86 + sfc /scannow multiple times after every fresh install + physically checked HDD. Performed all HP recommendations: http://support.hp(DOT)com/us-en/document/c01443463


- Did multiple fresh installs of Windows 8.1 with Bing (32 bit) erasing all partitions from hard drive every time (my system is designed for 64 but I only have access to a 32 ISO). Installed using Legacy Support (I understand you can't go back and enable Secure
Boot and disable Legacy once it has been installed this way but due to lack of any other way of installing Windows, I have no choice).

- Used 'Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool' to create ISO which automatically formats drive to NTFS; converted to FAT32 using 'AOEMI Partition Assistant' software (preserving all partitions/data) but it still won't read.

- Used 'Rufus v. 2.11.995' software to create ISO as FAT32 under several different setting iterations:

Best I can tell the documentation HP publishing specifying the method required to disable Secure Boot on an Envy 700-074 was written by someone(s) who had no experience in implementing the methods they list.  IT DOES NOT WORK!  The ONLY way this machine will boot to the harddrive or to a bootable CD/DVD is if SECURE BOOT IS ENABLED. I have spent literally days trying to get it to work.  Formatted harddrive as MBR not uefi, gone through the truly bizarre methods required to get the computer register in bios that I wanted the DVD drive as the first option, F10 and Escaped innumerable times.  Bottom line, whoever designed and implemented the bios on the Envy 700-074 MUST be kept away from future involvement on bios implementation!

Hello all, This is my problem: My BIOS won't boot my USB drive while in Secure Boot mode (Legacy Support disabled). After researching this, I realized UEFI Secure Boot won't read NTFS formatted flash drives hence requiring user to reformat to FAT32. I've reformatted to FAT32 but it still won't boot. I continue to run into the 'Boot Device Not Found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk.' screen. The only way to get the USB drive to boot is to disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Support. Virtually every forum I have researched pointed to this being the problem (aside from loose hard drives / hard drive and/or memory problems). I have checked the hard drive and have ran the F2 System Diagnostics and am sure there is no problem with the HDD. I have even tested the RAM/CPU with Memtest86 with 0 errors. I have ran multiple 'sfc /scannow' tests after each fresh Windows install and there are no corrupt files during installation. I have been trying to install a fresh Windows 8.1 with Bing (32 bit) on a system that originally came with 64 (there were no 64 bit ISOs available anywhere to download and since Microsoft conveniently doesn't make this specific Windows version available for download via their Media Creation Tool (or anywhere else on their or their affiliate sites for that matter), I was forced to resort to a 3rd party site to obtain this download. The problem is I am forced to install using Legacy Support as there appears to be no o...

Hi - I'm having a problem with booting and getting a black/blank LCD screen with an external montior connected via the displayport on Windows 10. I've tried the option of disabling fastboot in the power settings but this only relieves the problem during a restart rather than from a cold boot. The graphics mode is set to 'discrete' rather than 'hybrid' (which seemed resolve the issue for those using a dock). If I hibentate then resume the LCD screen displays.. Anyone experiencing the same problems or have a solution ? Many thanks

I have two Asus M5A97 R 2.0 LE and one Asus M5A97 R 2.0 MBs. I want to do the following:

Duel booth them in the following manner. The main OS will be on an SSD. The trial (Win 10) will be on a second HD (not SSD.)

In addition, I want to use a third HD for data and do this on a clean install.

I know how to move the user folder by doing a single clean install but I am not sure I can have two Win OSs on two different drives using the same third HD to place the user folder.

My plan is to keep the OSs totally separate and using the bios to select the drives.

1) Can this be done?
2) Is it best for me to DISABLE SECURE BOOT IF I DO THIS?

A:New Builds: Duel Boot, ? Secure Boot

Secure boot is a pain. might as well disable it.

With all HD's disconnected except the SSD. Install the main OSDisconnect the SSD and connect the second HD. Install Win 10Connect everything back: SSD, HD1,HD2Boot up using the boot menu if available so you don't have to reconfigure the BIOS.

I have a Win XP desktop which had problems with the hdd. The hdd and disk drive were connected to the same IDE bus(the motherboard only has one), the disk set as slave, the hdd as master. The computer worked fine except for errors with the hdd. I purchased a new hdd, and copied all contents of the old hard disk over using acronis migrate easy. In order to do this, I had to disconnect the disk drive, and connect the new hard drive in its place. The cloning process went smoothly and when I disconnected the old hard drive, I was able to boot into the new one. Everything worked fine, but when I connected the disk drive and rebooted, I got the error message:
"reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device"
How do I fix this?
 

A:Solved: "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot d
