T470 deployment with BIOS settings

Q: T470 deployment with BIOS settings

Hi all, we've received T470 and x270 which are delivered by default with SecureBoot enabeld.I found out that it isn't possible to set SecureBoot to disable by WMI. But we have to deploy Win7 and this is not working with Secureboot enabled and CSM disabled.Does anyone has an idea how this can be solved on a WinPE x64 environment?I also don't understand why it is possible to change the Secureboot option by WMI on M710q but not on ThinkPads. Thanks for your help. 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.)

Hello all, I unfortunately spilled coffee on my T470 and the keyboard at this point is no longer in action. Rest of computer seems to be fine. (fingers crossed). Being this is my work computer I have gone ahead and purchased a keyboard replacement opposed to trying any other cleaning methods. Here is my issue, from what I have read I need to disable the internal battery from the BIOS before pulling and replacing keyboard. I am having issues with this as my f1 key is not functioning and my external keyboard is not getting me to the BIOS when I reboot the computer. So Im not sure how to excactly disbable it. Any advise? Could I just unplug the power, pull the removable battery and let the internal battery drain?  Side note, the current keyboard is acting finicky, sticking keys etc/interfering with external keyboard. Its not aweful but its annoying. Can I pull the internal keyboard before I get the replacement and just use the external one? Thanks for the help in advanced.

I have a t470 HD, which according to the support site has the same drivers listed for both HD and HE.  I installed the latest BIOS a couple days ago (version 1.52) dated 07-22-2018 and it installed without any issues. Double check that you are using the proper BIOS for the T470 and run a checksum on the file to make sure it is not corrupt (The checksums are supplied when you click on the Readme icon).  With something as critical as the BIOS I always check the checksum.

I'm attempting to use the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 to deploy Windows 7.  When I attempt to update the deployment share, I get the following message: "Unable to mount the WIM, so the update process cannot continue."Not surprisingly the boot folders do not have the proper files created for the Win PE (which is the goal of updating the deployment share).

A:Unable to update deployment share for Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010

Pulled this from the help docsFailure to Update WIM Files   
In a ?simple? environment:
·         For Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008, MDT 2010 locates WIMGAPI.DLL in C:\Program Files\Windows Imaging, which should be in the system PATH. The WIMGAPI.DLL should not reside in C:\Windows\system32: It will be present in the C:\Program Files\Windows AIK directory tree, but MDT 2010 rarely uses it from that location.
·         For Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, MDT 2010 typically picks up WIMGAPI.DLL from C:\Windows\system32 (always in the path). The version of this WIMGAPI.DLL must match the version (build) of the operating system.
·         On a 64-bit operating system, MDT 2010 always uses the x64 WIMGAPI.DLL file; only that file should be in the system PATH. On a 32-bit operating system, MDT 2010 always uses the x86 WIMGAPI.DLL file; only that file should be in the system PATH. (Other products, such as System Center Configuration Manager, use the 32-bit version of WIMGAPI.DLL, even on a 64-bit operating system, but they manage and install that version.)
Problem: When attempting to update a deployment share, the user will be informed that the mounting of one or more .wim files did not succeed.

As the title says, top right USB port on my T470 doesn't work after BIOS v1.42 update when device is plugged in on boot.  Non of devices power up when plugged into that port. Naturally there's nothing in dmesg. This is not OS-dependent since devices don't power up in BIOS screen as well. The other 2 ports still work as expected. Restarting doesn't help. After some cold boots the ports starts working again. This never happened with previous BIOS versions.

I even downloaded the latest BIOS and updater as shown and put them on a USB flash drive together and tried the Macrium Rescue disk, and still nothing happened and it will not open the BIOS maybe i got it all wrong ?

Good evening!
A week ago I reinstalled Windows 7 in EFI mode on my laptop, and now I've got this problem: whenever I turn on my computer after a shutdown, the BIOS says "System Resuming" instead of "Press F2 to enter settings". This makes impossible for me to access BIOS settings. Previously, my BIOS used to say "System Resuming" only after a hibernation. The weird fact is that - as far as I remember - this thing started happening only after a few days.
Can you help me?
Thanks in advance :-)

I upgraded my RAM and now my AMD Athlon 3200 processor is being read as 1100MHz. I guess i need to reset the BUS speed but I'm not sure to what as the automatic setting appears to be wrong. I have a PCChips M848A motherboard.
 

A:BIOS Settings

because it defaulted to 1100mhz, that would meen a multiplyer of 11 and a fsb of 100. The XP3200 with an 11 multiplyer has a 200fsb. So you need to change the CPU frequancy in the BIOS from 100 to 200mhz. If there is an option to run the RAM at the same speed as the CPU FSB and you put slow memory in (PC2700 or something) then the MB may have set the CPU fsb to match the memory. Some motherboards alow you to change the CPU and memory speeds seperately. If the memory is slower then DDR400 (PC3200) then you may have to run the memory at 166 or 133mhz and the CPU @ 200MHz. Hope this helps.

I recently built a new system, with an ASUS A8N5X motherboard and two internal hard drives, one ide and the other sata. Everything works great with the exception of one thing. When I do a cold boot, the boot priority of my hard drives will not stay the way that I want them to. The sata is set to be a master drive on the channel it is on, and the ide drive is set to be a master drive on it's channel. I realized after I already had my operating system installed that I should have set the sata drive to be my boot drive, since it is a faster drive. However I do not really wish to re-install my operating system. Is there anything that I can change in my bios to force the system to accept the hard drive boot priority that I want it to have?
 

A:Bios settings

The only thing I could find in the BIOS is in the Boot section under Hard Disk Drives. It's got 1. 1st Master:XXXXXXXX, try putting the SATA drive here.

Is there a utility within windows or outside which can detect the bios settings of the machine without opening the bios itself.

This will facilitate my understanding of my machine. In the absence of this I have to go to each page of bios and collect the data and get it written down.

Could any expert guide me if this is possible. Presently I have a problem to know if my BIOS suports USB as a bootable device. If so how to make it active.

I have Award Bios for Intel GC11010N.86A.0303.2005.1108.2057 11/8/2005. I also would like to know if any upgrade is available.

Thanks.

Welcome to TSG!

To my knowledge there is not a utility within windows or third party that reports or manages your system BIOS.

Depending on your operating system USB 2 support is available. WinXP both flavors support USB 2 but I am not sure about Win2000.

To better understand your system BIOS elements and thier functions perhaps this PDF file will help.

Lastly, be very careful arbitrarily updating your BIOS. Doing so could render your system inoperative. Use the guidence of the motherboard manufacturer through their Tech Support interface at their website is the best bet for proper flashing of BIOS.

Hope that helps a bit.

Take Care

Hi,

MOBO, ASUS M3A78-EM, installed devices, 1 x sata 11 HD, 1 x floppy, 1x dvd rom, ( IDE), 1 x sata DVD/CD drive, 1 x sata front panel multi port hub.

I?ve been trying to resolve some issues I have with boot times and I don?t understand some of my bios settings, could someone advise me please or correct my selections.
 
1) IDE dvd rom set as master, ( no slave ).
2) SATA 1 = HD.
3) SATA 2 = DVD/CD drive.
4) SATA 3 = multi port hub.
5) Onchip Sata chanel 1 = enabled.
6) Onchip Sata type = Sata, but options for RAID or AHCI.

POWER
7) Suppend mode = Auto.
8) ACPI 2.0 support = disabled.
9) acpi-APIC support = enabled.

Boot Sequence.
10) SATA 1 = HD.
11)SATA 2 = DVD/CD drive.
12) Floppy, ( can?t see the IDE DVD drive but can see it elsewhere and drive works ).
Please see 1,2,3,4, which drive does gets priority here on boot up, I hopping it's number 3/11, ( same drive ), or do I need to change sequence.

Advance, Internal Graphics
13) AMD 780 HD Audio = Enabled, ( I have no HD devices fitted, I have legacy 97 Audio enabled elsewhere ).
14) Audio Controller = Enabled
15 ) SPDIF outmode setting = SPDIF output, (option to select HDMI).

A:My Bios Settings

If you don't have a Hard drive RAID setup you can safely disable the sata chip for RAID.

You can also disable the DVD and floppy from the boot sequence. Just leaving the Hard Drive. That sometimes saves a few seconds. (re-enable them only when you need to boot from disk/dvd etc. They will still work within Windows if disbaled from the boot sequnce)

You can probably enable the ACPI 2.0 safely (advanced power management). However if it does cause issues, just disabled it again. It won't save you any time at boot, but will help with things like Sleep/Hibernate

The AMD 780 HD is an on-board High Definition Audio device. Try setting all options to HD instead of legacy 97

SPDIF is the digital output to things like stereos, surround systems etc. (yellow plug) Not needed if you plug speakers straight into the green/blue speaker jack ports.

A:Help with BIOS settings

Your bios settings would be fine set to default, and would not make your computer run any faster. It would however slow down your boot process if it is searching for floppy drives and not set to boot from your Hard Drive first. But won't make an incredible difference. You should be fine...

Hello,
I'm trying to learn more about BIOS and it's settings, here are some settings that I'm not sure about:
HDD SMART Capability - Disabled (The manual says i should Enable this if i want to use a HDD monitoring program, which i use)
SATA Port0-1 Native Mode - Disabled (The manual says i should Enable this for XP)
Parallel Port Mode - SPP (I read in a guide that it would be better to change this to "ECP + EPP")
HPET Support - Enabled (It says it only works with Vista, should i disable it for XP?)
These are the ones I'm not sure about, anyone could tell what are the benefits or drawbacks of changing them?

Mobo: Gigabyte P35-DS3
OS: Win XP SP3
 

A:BIOS Settings

The BIOS default settings are usually okay as they are.

If you start changing settings without really knowing what you're doing, you can be left with non-working devices or a non-working computer.

Can anyone advise on BIOS settings, or suggest a good website.

I have been looking at how my PC is set up and just wonder why IRQs 3,4,7, and 14 are set to Monitor and IRQs 5,10,11,13,and 15 are set to ignore.

Is this likely to be correct?

My son's computer is an emachine athlon Xp 3200+ The default setting is 166 and that makes it an xp 2500. I'm trying to extend its life. My question is, will it help to keep the default setting or can I go back to the 200 setting that will make it a 3200? PS: I've had it at the 200mhz setting for a couple of years with no problems. What are the pros and cons of this. Thank you

Well, the main pro is that it will be a bit faster! I don't really see any point to underclocking it as long as it is sufficiently cooled.

The Belarc advisor is showing my bus clock as 100 megahertz.

My board is suppose to be 133 meg. I know that the ram in all slots is PC133. I'm thinking I need to change a bios setting to get it up to 133. Is this correct? If so, which BIOS setting do I need to adjust. Is it CPU host clock?

A:Bios settings

Hi: You can't change the amount of dedicated or shared system memory in your PC. The total is 804 MB.  64 MB is dedicated system memory and up to 740 MB of shared system memory can be allocated to the graphics adapter if necessary.

i know that different frequencies for my processor in my Bios will set my processor at different speeds (In terms of Ghz), so, what setting do i want for max performance? all the numbers are ?/? (EX: 160/30, somethin like that)
 

A:BIOS settings

Without knowing what mobo/cpu you have, it's impossible to tell. Even with the info, all we could give is a estimate of what may be possible..

You can build two systems with exactly the same equipment, and both will act differently..
