Q: Wake on LAN won't boot to EFI, only legacy

Hi, i've tried everything, but there's no way to boot to EFI boot order from a Wake on LAN.It only boots to legacy boot order.Do you have any ideas? When using Intel Management Engine to wake up, all is OK. Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Wake on LAN won't boot to EFI, only legacy

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 all,

Currently having a wake on lan issue with a certain computer.

The machine is setup correctly but the windows boot information is stored in a 100mb UEFI partition, and when the computer wakes on lan, it will not boot windows, just sit at a blank screen.

When it wakes on lan it is trying to boot from the legacy device (same blank screen happens if you choose to boot from it from bios)

ive tried updating the bios but no luck, all settings seem to be as they should be.

Is there some trick to get it to load the UEFI MBR, or is there a safe way other then reformatting the machine to move the MBR over to the legacy device itself?


Thanks for any help.

A:Boot UEFI from wake on lan, or convert UEFI MBR to legacy.

Back up your files, unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk: remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SEL DIS 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CONVERT MBR
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

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

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, 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).

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.

I have two Dell Inspiron 3250 that are a month old. They are both set to legacy boot and I can boot Win7, Win10, MSDART, etc without issue. I just ordered an identical system and setup the BIOS/UEFI exactly the same as the other systems. The new box crashes when I try to legacy boot anything including the Win 10 install DVD and bootable MSDART thumb drive and even the hard drive from one of the working systems (all work perfectly on the other 2 systems). I can boot/install under UEFI boot, but I want to use legacy. The only difference between the new system and the 2 old is the BIOS version (old is 2.4.2, new is 3.3.6)I tried to downgrade the BIOS with the Windows utility and also a DOS bootable utility. Both methods report that the BIOS is locked.I talked to Dell tech support and they informed me that the BIOS cant be upgrades/downgraded on that system which makes no sense to me. He also said that 3.3.6 doesnt support legace boot, which also makes no sense and legacy boot is clearly still an option that can be chosenI also tried the RAM from one of the other computers just to be sure it wasn't an issue.The BSOD I get when booting Win10 install DVD, or with the Working Win10 install from the other computer is PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREACan anyone shed some light on what is happening here with legacy boot, and why I cant up/down grade BIOS.Thanks

Just enable Legacy Support and disable Secure Boot. If disabling Secure Boot gives you access to Clear All Secure Boot Keys, you may need to do that too.

A:laptop stuck in legacy boot, help?

Hi there, Miserablerbro                       -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
This may be cause by a wrong Boot Order or the HDD technically cannot be detected by your computer causing it to boot to other media.
 
Can you first try doing a Power Drain:
Remove the AC Adapter from your Computer if the battery can be removed, Remove it as well.
Hold the Power Button down for 15 sec.
Reconnect Everything, Turn on the Computer and start hitting F2 or Fn + F2
This will boot the system to BIOS
 
If you cannot find the HDD in there, try re-seating the HDD
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi, My comany is purchasing HP EliteDesk 800 G2, some comes with HDD and some with SSD.We deploy Windows 7 x64 using SCCM using legacy boot. On a machine with HDD installed I can configure the boot options to use legacy boot, but when I replace the disk to a SSD drive the only boot option for this drive is UEFI.That causes the deployment to fail because the drive need to be partitioned as GPT.On the other hand, if I disable legacy boot, PXE boot to UEFI and partition the disk as GPT, after the image deployment the disk is unable to boot with 0xc000000d error (I imagine the cause is Windows 7 support becuase it does work on Windows 8.1). Bottom line, I can install Windows 7 on a HP EliteDesk 800 G2 only if legacy boot is enabled and I partition the disk as UEFI.Is there any way of forcing the SSD to boot as legacy and not UEFI?Is this issue caused by the workstation or is it enforced by the SSD? thanks.

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

Hi  lenovoman123, Good to have you back. If the system is using Win8/8.1/10 UEFI would be the choice, anything else I recommend using Legacy. Cheers,

Hi, i have the same problem as mentioned in some other threads on the forum:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Can-t-change-BIOS-settings-after... or http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Can-t-change-BIOS-settings-after... I need to setup a PC to Win7, that has a trial Version of Windows 10 installed. My Bios Version is HP M60 2.14 and unfortunately, some bios options like legacy boot are greyed out.This means that I cannot use my Win7 USB Stick nor the DVD.I have setup an administrator password and also an MEBx password, but am not able to enable these options. In contrast to these other threads, where the solution was to login as guest user and then enter the admin password, i do not get an login option before or in bios. I can startup directly into the Bios Options, but cant find an option to switch user. Thank you for your help!
