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. I recently bought an Asus P8B75-M LE along with an MSI GTX 660 Ti OC V1 and an i5 (My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit). Every time i start the computer i get this message: "The current BIOS setting do not fully support the boot device. Click OK to enter BIOS Setup" and a yellow text: "Go to Advanced > Boot > CSM Parameters, and adjust the CSM (Compatibility Support Module) settings to enable boot device.". I've tried for hours, but to no avail. I've updated the bios to the latest version, too. But i believe i know what the problem is. I need to disable Secure Boot, but the option to do so is greyed out. The only option i am able to change is "OS Type". Please, help me! I'm getting really frustrated here.

Sorry to trouble you guys,
but like it says in the title, I'm finding that I am unable to disable secure boot. I can change the boot mode from UEFI to Legacy BIOS and that disables secure boot, but in Legacy mode I can't do what I'm trying to. I can't select the Secure Boot menu in the BIOS options--it's always greyed out. I've done some research and some sources said to hold shift while shutting down "to ensure you're really stopping Windows before trying to enter the BIOS" and hitting F2 on startup. I tried that but it made no difference. I've tried fiddling around with getting to the BIOS in other ways (forgotten how, now) and of course that made no difference. I'd appreciate any help and would be so happy to get this resolved.

I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Acer Aspire V-3551 that came with Windows 8 preinstalled.

Thanks

A:Disable Secure Boot.

Hi,
Secure boot is a feature of Windows 8 which uses a public-key infrastructure to verify the integrity of the Operating System and prevent unauthorized programs such as boot kits from infecting the device.
I checked the BIOS of your system model and there is no option to disable secure boot.
Before installing Windows 8, I would suggest you to run Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant by clicking the link mentioned below, it will scan system hardware, apps, and connected devices to see if they'll work with Windows 8:

I have an acer laptop that came preloaded with windows 8 64bit. I am unable to turn on test mode. It says "Setting is protected by secure boot" or something similar.

An option in the boot settings (accessed by holding shift key while restarting) is there to turn off driver signing restrictions but it isn't working for me at all.

I did it on my desktop with windows 8.1 (not preloaded) in order to set my mouse USB port to a higher frequency with a non-digitally signed driver.

Hello everyone, Here is my issue. I just got a deal on a brand new HP Probook 450 G3 that came with a 1To HDD and Windows 10 pre-installed. I used the spare money to purchase an Windows 7 Pro x64 license and a Sandisk 256Gb SSD. My intention was to pull the original HDD out and do a clean install of Windows 7 on the SSD. I have gone absolutely bonkers after 72 hours of trying... Sorry in advance if I state the obvious or if I do not use the right wording. I know a little but am definitely not a wiz. So here goes.  PROBLEM 1: Impossible to Enable Secure Boot and Install Windows 7 I unplugged the HDD and swapped it with the SSD. Using Rufus, I created a bootable USB stick formatted as Fat32 and partitioned as GPT since my Bios defaults to UEFI. I stuck the USB device in the computer, went to F10 - BIOS Setup. My BIOS is version N78 Ver. 1.06 12/18/2015 (latest). The USB device is properly recognized as a UEFI device. In BIOS Setup  >>  Advanced  >>  Secure Boot Configuration, I switched to Legacy Support Enable and Secure Boot Disable then Save. In Boot Options, I unchecked Fast Boot. Below, UEFI Boot Order is greyed out and cannot be unchecked. Only the device booting order can be tweaked so I ranked the USB device first.

The simplest method is to use a SATA to usb adapter and a  cloning utility. I have an Apricorn adapter and Acorn cloning utility that was delivered with a Crucial SSD I purchased as a migration kit.  Other great cloning utilities are Paragon software's  Migrate OS to SSD. Using this method takes about 30 minutes or therabouts. If you prep the SSD with the Diskpart utility you should be able to use the recovery media to install the operating system. Once the SSD has been cleaned, a partition created, has been formatted ,  and been made active  then there shouldn'd be an issue using it as the primary disk in a notebook.

Hi,
I had unfortunately gotten a trojan and had to do a HD full wipe and reformat after having tried to do a system recovery with the USB recovery disk I made when I first got my computer (new). I don't know if the trojan was blocking the recovery or what but it simply would not take and just booted back into windows bypassing the recovery all together.
So I am sitting now with a Build 9200 windows 8 but want to go back to using windows 7 as microsoft has not replied to any of my emails regarding the issue with activation if one has to do a HD wipe like I did. Build 9200 it seems you can't just go into the advanced system settings/restart and access the UEFI to disable secure boot which means I can't install windows 7 and get rid of 8 all together, or atleast can't without some other way to disable the secure boot.
Simple fix... would be put the freaking activation codes that we paid for back on the boxes, or if you don't like that put them at least with the documentation that comes with the computer. Lacking that option I'm stuck here with asking this forum for help.
Help?

After you create your supervisor password, add the appropriate entry (grub) in your BIOS/UEFI.  You don't need to disable secure boot. See eelcoherders post. http://community.acer.com/t5/Linux/Ubuntu-on-E5-573G-71L9-black-screen-after-menu-on-Live-USB/m-p/40... Make sure you create recovery media first in case you ever want to put the computer back to factory condition. http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/29934/related/1/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xNDY1ODcyMjA... Also, make sure you have the latest UEFI/BIOS. http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers If your going to have both Windows and Linux installed, then you'll need to enable the F12 boot menu in the UEFI.

A:I cant find BIOS and disable Secure Boot

Hi: Your notebook does not have a UEFI BIOS, so there is no secure boot feature to disable. If your notebook has an Intel processor and chipset, you need to install the applicable sata achi driver in order to install  Windows XP. See the link below, read the Intel section and then read the downloadable document for how to slipstream all of the drivers. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/SATA-drivers-for-XP-solution-on-... If your notebook has an AMD processor and nNvidia chipset, you should just be able to install XP with no problem. For Intel, you would need the XP 64 bit drivers to slipstream which I have zipped up and attached below.

Essentially: How do I disable secure boot? There is no such option in BIOS that I can find.

The reason I want to do this is that I recently reinstalled Windows 10 Pro, and suddenly I can't install new programs, due to a window that says something like "your organization used windows defender to block this app". The computer is not part of a network or domain and the issue remains with defender turned off.
So my Windows support instructed me to disable secure boot, restart computer, and the enable secure boot again. Why, I don't know. But it's worth a try.

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.

Hello,
My Dell computer did not boot anymore. Nothing seemed to work, so I went to a friend and copied the emergency disk on a USB drive. The drive seems to work as it installs windows 10, but if I leave it in when it finished installing, it will do it again. I tried taking it out, and the black screen showed a blue window with little balls circling and the words getting ready. Well, I waited quite a while and nothing happened.
So, I started searching the web (I also have a Mac computer) and people seemed to say that I should change the booting bios and disable secure boot. I went into the bios, or so I think, but clicking on f12 at restart. I went to boot but I saw no secure boot in the choices.
I am at a loss here. I haven't used my dell since February, as that is when I had the problem. Then life happened and I did not get back to it till now.
I would appreciate some help if at all possible.

A:Reinstalled windows 10 from usb and got stuck secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI

Once you install Windows from a Window USB Installer, you should remove the USB Flash drive on First Bootup and it will start to load Windows from the HDD.
If not, restart the computer and press F2 to enter Setup (Bios) Here go to Boot Priority. Move the HDD up to First Boot Device. Also go to the Security tab, if Secure Boot is Enabled, using your Enter and Arrow key, Disable it or change it to Setup Mode.
If this doesn't boot the computer, then the install is corrupted. Try using the Microsoft tool for Windows 10

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz

Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - Crashed and now won't boot past opening lenovo screen

Are you able to get into the advanced boot menu by tapping F8? It might not be listed on the startup screen but it should still be there.
 
If not you can burn a repair disc from any PC with Windows 7. Theres steps from Microsoft Here.
