T590/T490 UEFI/BIOS Option Request!

Q: T590/T490 UEFI/BIOS Option Request!

Hi there guys, Hope this reaches the official team in charge of developing the UEFI for this two laptops. I would like to see an option in the graphic settings to allow me to disable the dedicated GPU (Nvidia MX250 in my case) and run only the laptop with the integrated Intel GPU and another option to run in normal "hybrid" mode. I have observe too, that when I select the option to give the integrated Intel GPU 512MB of video memory it does not retain the option after reboot and sometimes it doesn't even allow me to choose that option.Maybe a bug, I don't know, but I would like to have that fixed too.I'm using the latest UEFI/BIOS (1.52) by the way. Thanks for any feedback in advance. Best Regards,

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.)

As for graphics.  It came with a Intel UHD Graphics 620 and Nvidia GeForce MX250 with 2GB GDDR5 memory.
 
For connectivity it came with 2 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, 1 USB Type-C, 1 HDMI 1.4, 1 Thunderbolt 3, a MicroSD Card reader and 1 Audio Jack.  An interesting feature on this laptop that I personally have not seen before is the left side USB C port can charge other USB C devices.  It can output 5V at 1.5A.

I have two options (CSM) or (UEFI) in my Toshiba Laptop BIOS. When I select UEFI the computer will not boot. I tried to get Toshiba's tech support to explain this to me but besides not speaking english I did not get a clear answer.

If anyone has the time and knowledge to explain this option and it's uses in simple terms I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank You

A:UEFI BIOS Option

When CSM (Compatibility Support Module) is enabled it allows a modern EFI based PC to operate in a Legacy BIOS mode.

This allows for your operating system to be installed and run from a traditional MBR (Master Boot Record) disk and the advanced features of the EFI system are disabled.

Switching to UEFI mode enables the EFI system. UEFI PCs usually use the GPT file table, which includes a hidden SYSTEM partition and a Windows SYSTEM RESERVED partition.

I am assuming that what you meant to say is that with UEFI enabled Windows will not start, not that the PC will not boot. (If the PC did not boot you could not get into the BIOS settings to change it back.)

I believe that this is because Windows was installed in legacy BIOS mode. I believe that to run in UEFI mode you would need to reinstall Windows or make some alterations to the startup process. I do not know if Startup Repair would help in this case. Perhaps someone else here will know this and comment.

These systems are relatively new. I do not own one yet, so I have not had the opportunity to play with one to get hands on experience. What I know is what I've read.

I don't have the option in windows to boot back into the UEFI setup. In my motherboard bios setup there is an option which allows for the selection of UEFI, Legacy and UEFI or Legacy, When I change this to UEFI my pc wont' boot and the error message is that no UEFI partition was found.

I think it may have been deleted when I installed Windows 8.1 initially because i had to convert from MBR to GPT. Or so i read on one of the forums.

Is it possible to restore my UEFI partition so that I can use windows to enter the bios setup. I've had the boot on ultra fast and it took me a week to get into the bios without using the delete key. I had to use Gigabyte utilities which include drivers that crash windows. So i want to remove them again ASAP.

Any help appreciated.

A:UEFI option instead of Bios boot

Well to get back into UEFI mode you will have to reinstall in UEFI mode there is no other way, Sounds like some how your OS got converted to MBR so It may not boot either MBR or UEFI but you can't convert back to UEFI you have to Reinstall. If you have data on that disk you need to recover you can pull the drive and hook it up USB to another computer and recover your Data.

Hi all,

Just got my hands on a brand new ASUS K95VB notebook on behalf of a friend. I used a USB with Windows 8.1 on it in order to format the hard drive and install Windows. The hard drive is 3TB. I remember trying to install Windows using the UEFI option in the usb startup menu but that didnt work so I proceeded on the non-uefi option.
Now the problem is that only 2 TB are shown and the remaining 1 TB is shown only in device manager as not assigned...
If I understand correctly, the BIOS should be in UEFI mode and then the hard drive should be converted to GPT and then install Windows.

But, no option in BIOS for UEFI to be enabled whatsoever. What on earth should I do?

You don't need to change the default UEFI firmware (BIOS) settings, when you install Windows 8/8.1 64-bit.

Does this mean I cannot use a SSD with a PCIe connection or are there work-arounds, hotfix's, etc. to make this work?

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum but I have been reading up on threads trying to find a solution to my problem. I am trying to boot from USB in order to start using Ubuntu but my problem is that when I go to the advanced settings - troubleshoot - there is no UEFI Firmware Settings, which, from what I have gathered is necessary to be able to boot Ubuntu from my USB flash drive. So far the solution that most people have is that there is no UEFI on that particular computer/type of windows 8, and on the startup screen to press f2, f11, esc, etc but there is no indicator as to what key is is on the ACER splash screen, similar to this. scn101.jpg Photo by Kizwan_Chronos | Photobucket

You need to use the laptop's boot menu to select the USB:
Boot the BIOS with F2 and enable the boot menu -> that will be F12 so reboot and press F12 with the usb inserted. If the usb is on the list, select it.

Scenario:
Upgraded Video Card from GTX 560 Ti to GTX 1060 Strix, machine boots but no video output or just black/blank screen.

Did a bit of online research and realize that two ways of fixing this
1. Change PCI setting to Legacy in BIOS/UEFI
2. Update to latest BIOS.

I decided to try and update BIOS to latest BETA (13w) using @bios from Windows. Everything went ok, reboots fine and still does now with Windows loading no problem, BUT i can't get to BIOS/UEFI???

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

So i thought maybe i can reverse back to previous BIOS from windows but program wouldn't allow this. I tried sticking BIOS file in USB but the problem is i can't get to BIOS.

I Have tried running backup BIOS as board has two, but still same problem.

Hi,

I would like to boot into the EFI shell with a notebook that has virtually no BIOS options like ..booting into efi etc - of course not in the boot manger either.

I have the actual Shell_Full.efi on a fat 32 partition and renamed it into efi/boot/BOOTX64.efi according to some documentation I found.

Now I would just need to get the notebook to find this file during the boot process. Currently during boot windows boot manager gives me the option to boot windows 7 Premium home or (via TAB key) the HP diagnostic tool that is UEFI based but nothing else.

I guess a "boot from that file option (UEFI SHELL)" could be added using easyBCD or GRUB but I am not sure how to configure them to do that.

Here is a link to the drivers and specs of my HP Pavilion DV6 2090eo notebook with i7 processor http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=4063&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=nz&lang=en&product=4040219 .

Hi, Beware- your laptop may not have an option to enable Virtualisation Technology.

I eventually realised that I was failing to install Win 8.1 in VirtualBox because virtualisation technology was disabled.
(Acceleration tab in VirtualBox greyed out, "VT-x ... is not available" error)

New custom laptop.

Called the supplier, PC Specialist in the UK.

1. He understood what I was talking about.. great.
2. He checked and confirmed there was no appropriate option in the locked down dumbed down version of UEFI
3. He said 9 out of 10 laptops had it enabled by default. (ASUS motherboard).
- why aren't they consistent?????
4. Flashing it wasn't an option.
5. So it has to be returned and replaced with a new one they will build and test, and return with my existing disks.
6. Being picked up tomorrow... perhaps 10 days.

So a replacement laptop, which means an issue with my Windows license, and at least one one other program.

Hmm.

Just in case someone else encounters a similar situation...

A:What, no virtualisation technology option in your UEFI? RMA it!

Just use vmware player. It does not require that setting to be turned on in the bios. I didn't think virtual box required it either.

I have only noticed a slight performance improvement with that on, nothing major though. It all depends on usage however.

Hi There,

I just built a desktop with a sabertooth x79 motherboard, and am running Windows 8.1 pro 64-bit. When I click the UEFI BIOS Firmware live tile via the change PC settings>update and recovery>recovery>etc. my computer reboots normally to Windows and will not open BIOS. I have tried accessing it using the delete and f2 keys, but this does nothing either.

Any ideas? I am up to date in terms of my BIOS, and am definitely running UEFI and not legacy.

Thank you so much.

Hello together, i have a problem with our System X3650 M4 Server, Machinetype Model: 5462G2G. I downloaded an imm and an uefi update file from the lenovo website.First i updated imm through the imm2 website remotly.Update did go as planned, i restarted th imm2 and after about 5 minutes the new imm2 was working an accessible,Then i tried to update the uefi bios from version 1.01 to 2.31 , also via the IMM2 -> Servermangement -> Server Firmware -> Firmware upgrade option.I Uploaded the new file lnvgy_fw_uefi_tce128i-2.31_anyos_32-64.upd, then started the upgrade process. It went through fine, and after the sucess information i was prompted to restart the OS.After 30 minutes, the server was still in System State = running in uefi mode.When i checked back to the server management -> Server firmware rab, it said UEFI Primary, Status pending, Version 2.31.Then i "powered off" the server, and restarted it 5 minutes later. All status boxes are green, but system status is still in "system running in UEFI " Mode, it wont start with the OS (VMware) Does anyone have an idea how to fix the problem. The Server also has a secondary bank with the old bios version  1.01 , how can i switch back to this backup BIOS? Many thanks in advance, i am getting a bit desperate here. The server should be operational tomorrow morning again.

We're currently setting up a batch of new T470 (Model 20HES0FW00). We replaced the internal Intel NVMe with WD Black SN750 NVMe SSDs. After the hardware upgrade, the option to set the harddisk password in UEFI is missing. According to WD, the SSDs do support ATA security. As far as I understand, this is the feature needed to support the UEFI harddisk password option. Any ideas? Your help is greatly appreciated.

I've been googling for hours and can't seem to find an answer.
Is it possible to control the DHCP option 55 parameter request list that Windows sends up to the DHCP server in the DHCP REQUEST?  I need Windows to request option 42 (NTP addresses) in the DHCP request.  I am currently using DhcpRequestParams
to request option 42 but a particular client has blocked the port that ack comes over and refuses to open it.  Our QNX product includes all options in the DHCP request and they are arguing Windows should behave the same and that their firewall shouldn't
need to be modified.  I'm hoping there is some registry value or something I can modify to control this..
Thanks!

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000, i7 3.1 GHz, etc~
So recently I changed the operating system from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 17.04 GNOME x64 using a bootable USB.
The installation was done with no problems at all but when it restarted, it wasn't booting into the hard drive.
I went into the BIOS settings to add a new boot option but it says "File system not found!"
There were 2 options before I installed Ubuntu, both of them were removed and now I can't do anything to add a new one.
I can, however, manually select internal HDD by pressing F12 when I turn it on, it then normally boots into Ubuntu and everything works fine.
Anyone knows how to fix this please?

Whatever you are showing on the boot device menu for Ubuntu, should show as first priority in the Bios for boot priority.
