Imaging issues and BIOS settings

Q: Imaging issues and BIOS settings

Currently we are developing an Image for the Ideapad 510S and the 520S. Due to licensing we want to use the Image of the Ideapad itself. Because we are delivering a consumer grade unmanged Notebook with only some basic applications like Devicelock, Deepfreeze, Office 2016 w/o Outlook. Before we start to deply software on it we make a new WIM file with DISM. To accomplsh this we prepare the image by stripping it down (Lenovo stuff away, default apps removed what not is needed). After this, we run Sysprep with generalize option and oob option. But then, there is absolutely no way Sysprep can be ran. It breaks with an error and despite all advise from Microsoft we cannot get it to work. What is wrong with your Windows 10 on those devices? The second part is the Firmware, with our Fujitsu and Dell Laptops we can set BIOS options like password, enable/diasble devices etc, from the commandline. With a Thinkpad it is also possible, but with the Ideapad not. And you can imagine that it is a big problem because it will be about 300-600 devices next year we will deliver. The solution would be an enterprise grade laptop, but these laptops will be used by "special" persons and our experience is that each device will not survive more then 10-12 months and these laptops are "give and forget" and have no network connection (eg, laptops are used in highly isolated environment where people only come out after they fullfill their time - thats all i can tell".So my question, how can we get an unique BIOS password (Admin and user) into the bios and disable WiFi and PXE boot? from the command line...

We need some advanced settings of the wireless adapter and the network connection itself stored in the image, captured by HDPM.When deploying this image to the original T620, everything works fine. Whe deploying to others T620, the wireless adapter settings are lost. That means, the originial wireless adapter is "in the background", and the wireless adapter of the deplyoed thin client gets #2. That's why the settings are "lost". How do I have to configure, capture and deploy the thin client image?It's Win embedded 7. thanks for your help.Sascha

Hi

Here is my situation:

I have upgraded a few days ago my daughter's PC from Windows 7 home premium to Windows 10 Home. The upgrade (a clean install) was done on a brand new SSD (Samsung 860 Evo 250gb). After the upgrade, I loaded several programs and created an image of my C: drive with Macrium reflect v7.2 free.

When I installed the Samsung Magician software I realized that AHCI mode was not activated. So I went into the UEFI and turned AHCI mode on. I saved and rebooted the PC. On reboot what I got was a blue screen of death (BSOD). In the process, I lost my Boot manager and had a hard time reboting. Now, everything is screwed up. Sometimes the PC boots and sometimes it does not. It is a mess. It is not reliable at all. When it boots though, everything works normally. Every time, I just do not know if I will be able to reboot or not.

I did not know that I should have enabled the AHCI mode in the BIOS (or UEFI if you prefer) BEFORE installing Windows 10.

To solve the problem, I am thinking of running a restore with Macrium Reflect as I have an image of the boot drive dated the day PRIOR to the day I changed the AHCI mode in the UEFI. BEFORE I restore, I want to change the UEFI setting of AHCI mode to ON.

My question is this:

Question 1
If I do just that, will it save my butt ? I mean not have to re-install everything.

Question 2
Will windows install the necessary drivers for the AHCI mode (after the image is restored) or will it turn AHCI mode back to IDE... Read more

Does anyone know how to change Kodak Imaging default print settings so that it shows "Fit to page" in the Print format drop down under the Image Options tab on the Print dialogue window?? I would guess it's a registry setting because there's no way for me to apply this as a default in the application itself.

Hello everyone! I've been searching around for a solution to this issue I've having but haven't found a thread that relates to my particular situation, so help would be greatly appreaciated. I installed HP ProtectTools on a laptop and it configured BIOS to require a password before booting up. I decided that I didn't want that setup and since it was a fresh image of windows, a re-image would be a quicker and easier fix to this issue. However, the BIOS security features still remain and now all the previous software the was used to setup the BIOS security is no longer on the laptop. How can I go about removing this security feature now that I've re-imaged the laptop? Thanks

A:Issues imaging windows 7 pro with Macrium Reflect

Hi lil mickey,

It could be macrium didn't fix the o/s drive letter.

The easiest way for you would be to use the paragon free rescue kit - there is a module that lets you change the o/s registy letter.

select normal mode- Boot Corrector -Search for windows installations - correct registry drive letter.

Unless you are a geek, the drive letter next to the win7 volume label should be C.

If it isn't, change it to C.

I have tried F2 DEL F8 F12 just about all the F combinations and nothing works, I have two SSD drives one with Win7 Pro and one with Win10 Pro (not connected at the same time) and neither of them will boot up.
I have tried changing the jumper pins from 1 and 2 to 2 and 3 for 10 sec to clear the RTC Ram in CMOS then returned then to 1 and 2 and tried rebooting...no change so i removed the battery and repeated the jumper pin swap then reinstalled the battery and still no change, cannot get passed press DEL or F2 to access the BIOS settings.
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 :-)

A:I can't access BIOS settings because BIOS assumes Windows is resuming

Try doing a shutdown command from a CMD window, or Start button / Run
The command is shutdown /s

See if entering the command manually makes a difference in how it starts up

Hello All,
3 days ago I applied the latest bios update to my 1-year old XPS15, running latest and fully patched 64 bit Windows 10 public release.
Since then
A) plugin a rather simple USB-3 hub into the system prevents the laptop from Booting into BIOS, or if manages to do that
B) plugin said USB-3 hub after full windows boot, freezes both USB ports devices.  The unfreeze can be overcame by unplugging the hub and then other device and then re-pluging both
C) after step B, windows explorer becomes very unstable and does not even show all the folder contents to some programs "open file" function.
D) the system does not recover anymore from plain S3 sleep, triggering a windows hard reboot.
I'm afraid the bios option to roll-back the bios version was not active, so I'm stuck.
Finally, the latest Intel diver published at the same time does not install cleanly after the bios update (although I managed to get it to show in the "program files" section.
I always apply the latest updates for drivers and bios promptly as main security policy and so far the system has behaved very well (Maybe with the exception of Hibernation from sleep time out, which always has been a bit faulty)

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

BTW it is pc3200 400Mhz
 

A:RAM settings in bios

What is your memory voltage at? Those chips should have a voltage of 2.6 according to their specs, so if you're running lower than that it's not too surprising that you can not reach stock speed.

If you are running with voltage at 2.6, then you could have gotten "faulty" chips. (Faulty in that they can not reach the adverticed speeds).

What motherboard are you running them in? And what PSU do you have?

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?

I would like to understand some of the settings on my AMI BIOS v02.58 plus get suggestions on the recommended settings for my XP Home SP2 system (ASUS P5K3 mobo with INTEL Core 2 Duo E6850/3.0/4MB, RAM 2GB/DDR3/PC3-8500):

1. Advanced / PCIPnP / Plug And Play O/S: Settings are NO (default) and YES
NO = Lets the BIOS configure all the devices in the system. YES = Lets the OS configure PnP devices not required for boot if your system has a PnP OS.

Should I leave the default NO setting or change it to YES and why?

2. Power / Suspend Mode: Settings are AUTO (default), S1 (POS) only, S3 only

What each one does and what is recommended?

3: Power / ACPI 2.0 Support: Settings are DISABLED (default), Enabled

What each one does and what is recommended?

4: Power / ACPI APIC Support: Settings are ENABLED (default), Disabled

What each one does and what is recommended?

All is working fine on my PC except it will not go into Hibernation (Hibernation has been enabled in the Power Options Properties)

Thank you

I would set your BIOS to the default settings. They are designed to run best that way.

I have an old Pentuim KTX computer and everytime I start it up it would present the following:
- CMOS SETTINGS WRONG
- CMOS DISPLAY TYPE WRONG
I would then go through to the CMOS Setup but I'm not sure what to do, I have noticed that the time is incorrect and so I would change to the present time and save on exit. I would then go through to start up again and the following message appears:
- NO A/: PRESENT (or something to this affect)

I am still able to get through to Window 95 startup but 5 mins into startup and then the mouse would stop moving and the PC would appear to lockup and so I would restart and then find that nothing would happen on screen.
I'm hoping that someone may be able to assist me as to where I should start to fix this problem.

Thank you T.

You can start to learn what hardware you have by downloading Everest Free:
http://www.lavalys.com
It will tell you about the SMART status of your disk drives and the temperatures of your System, CPU and Aux in addition to the rpms of your fans. Definitely do both the Quick and the Full Report.

The place where info and updates for your BIOS is located is at the website of the manufacturer of your motherboard.

The place where info and hard drive utilities is located is the manufacturer of your hard disk drives.

You can also learn by googling for example: "disk drive" & cyl
or checkout the hardware guides at http://www.tomshardware.com/index.html

If you are not interested in overclocking your processor or having problems booting up, which usually means some kind of hardware problem - best not to mess with the BIOS settings until you know what you are doing.

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
 

A:CPU settings in bios?

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.
