HP G70-460US OS/Software :: No Bios Update To Enable Secure Boot

Jan 19, 2015

A friend ask me to upgrade her G70-460US Notebook PC to Win 8.1 from Vista.  The bios doesn't have a secure boot option and when checking HP the update for this machine doesn't show it either.  It this notebook to old to update to Win 8.1?  If not where do I find the Bios upgrade with the Secure Boot option?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon - How To Re-enable Secure Boot

Aug 19, 2014

On my X1 Carbon, I had to move from Win 8.1 pro to 8.1 Ent. I did a fresh install from scratch to only install what I need.During my setup, I had to disable Secure boot, to boot on a USB Key, install 8.1 Enterprise. Now that everything is working, I would like to re-enable the secure boot option.
If I don't it directly in the BIOS, the laptop doesn't book any more.Do I have to import key from my 8.1 Ent to the Bios or something like this?

Sony :: Officially Released A BIOS Update To Enable VT On 4th Generation SR

Aug 14, 2009

There were many SR4 laptops sold in May 2009 in China suffering the problem of stopping responding randomly and frequently, which caused quite a lot of hot threads discussing.

Sony identified the problem as some bugs in BIOS firmware and hence released an update to fix this.

Official site:[url] (Chinese site, Google Translate may work)

Download link: [url]

As a "side effect" some customers noticed that Sony has officially enabled the option of VT in BIOS settings!

This is quite unbelievable according to the usual style of Sony. Maybe it is because of the pressure from XP mode in the upcoming Windows 7.

Unfortunately the BIOS update still does not give SLIC 2.1 so to activate Windows 7 we still need SLIC 2.1 from Lenovo or other brands.

Dell Optiplex 7010 :: No Boot From CD-DVD Even With UEFI OFF And Secure Boot Off

Oct 31, 2014

Everyone:  Absolutely cannot boot from CD-DVD even if I turn OFF Secure Boot and UEFI and my machine lists my CD-DVD as a boot option.  When I then try to boot from the CD-DVD, I get an error message.  (Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower with Win 8 Pro 64-bit, an Intel i5 3470 processor, 8 GB RAM and 500 GB hard drive.  It has BIOS version A16 right now.)

I started a thread on this issue in Desktop Hardware Forum - [URL]...

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z510 - Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed After BIOS Update

Dec 13, 2013

I get the error in the Title after i tried to flash the latest BIOS update for the Z510. I can press ok and then get into the boot manager but i cant choose anything there. Also I cant boot from a Disk with e.g. XP on it.
I also tried the Inside BIOS crisis mode (fn+r) with the BIOS file on my USB drive but it doesn't work and tries to access the file on the USB drive but boots normally instead to the error again. (Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z50-75 Won't Boot After BIOS Update

Sep 28, 2014

I just bought Z50-75 with AMD FX7500, 8GB Ram and FreeDOS. I installed Windows 8.1 Pro, and they pulled some drivers during the installation, and I went to Lenovo sight and downloaded all the rest (graphics, camera, etc.), after each installation the computer restarted normally and all was O.K. The last drivers that I saw on the site were BIOS drivers, and I downloaded those to and it started the installation after which it said:"The system will now restart for changes to make effect", and it did, but, it would not boot up after that, all it did was show me this on the screen:
And I tried both of the options (the second one with the Windows CD inside), but it just stays where it is, no effect.

I can enter the bios and change the settings, but none of them seem to work because this is the maximum where it will go, the only difference is when I change from AHCI to Compatible mode, it restarts and than I have a blank screen, I have to use the One button Recovery to get back to this one from the picture above...

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Enabling Secure Boot On T430s?

Jun 17, 2010

My laptop was running Windows 8.1 with SecureBoot enabled just fine. But I just swapped out my boot drive for a bigger SSD and, when I tried to boot from my USB installation media (to do a fresh Windows 8.1 install), nothing would happen (the screen would just flash when I tried to select the USB drive). I realized I had to disable Secure Boot in order to boot from the USB drive and then to enable booting from legacy/non-UEFI devices.
So now I've been able to install Windows 8.1 and it's running without a hitch, but Secure Boot is still in the disabled state. When I enable it, I can't boot from anything. How can I re-enable Secure Boot with my fresh Windows 8.1 install? Or if I have to reinstall, what steps do I need to take this time?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Disabling Secure Boot On S1

Nov 16, 2014

I am trying to disable UEFI Secure Boot on my Thinkpad Yoga S1 but it keeps getting re-enabled after a reboot. If I set secure boot to disabled I can boot into the non secure OSes installed on the machine imediately afterwards but if the machine is restarted the Secure Boot seting in the BIOS is re-enabled.  It's important for me to have secure boot disabled as I use OSes without secure boot.

I try to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS on the following screen :

Link to image 1

But if I re-enter the BIOS either after booting into an OS or simply re-entering the BIOS, Secure Boot is back on:

Link to image 2

I have also tried to disable "OS Optimzed Defaults" but it also returns to enabled after a restart.

Link to image 3

Some of the other BIOS settings save correctly so I can't figure out why the secure boot settings don't. The BIOS version I have is the latest (1.18).

It's inconvenient to manually disable secure boot each time I want to use the laptop. The two operating systems (Ubuntu and Android x86) do work reasonably well once booted.

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: Won't Boot After BIOS Update

Apr 26, 2013

I just did a BIOS update the other day. No idea what version it is. When I booted it said it "detection error on HDD...". I have since reset the BIOS options to default, and now it boots to a DOS-like boot screen that shows the ATA HDD0 drive. But selecting it and hitting enter just flashes the screen and nothing happens.
When I attach a USB thumb drive with Linux, it shows up in the options on the DOS-like boot screen, but selecting it won't boot from it.The laptop is now totally uselss and I'm losing days of time and it's a major problem.

Dell Latitude E7440 :: BitLocker And Secure Boot Running Windows 8.1

Jun 26, 2014

I'm attempting to enable BitLocker on a Latitude E7440 running Windows 8.1. The system is in UEFI mode with Secure Boot enabled, so I'd like to use Secure Boot for integrity validation. I have the appropriate GPO set, but if I try to enable the TPM protector, I get the following warning event in the BitLocker-API management event log:

BitLocker cannot use Secure Boot for integrity because the expected TCG Log entry for variable 'SecureBoot' is missing or invalid.

This is immediately followed by:

BitLocker determined that the TCG log is invalid for use of Secure Boot. The filtered TCG log for PCR[7] is included in this event.

The system therefore ends up configured with a regular platform validation profile instead of using Secure Boot. Is this a problem with the firmware on the Atmel TPM on the system, or is it something else?

Lenovo U/S Series :: Windows 8.1 On IdeaPad U330 - Secure Boot Not Being Configured

Oct 19, 2013

Yesterday, I updated to win 8.1.  The process appeared to go smoothly, but I now have a number of issues:
1  If I close the lid and reopen, the sytem does not wake up.   It does not wake up if I press the power button.  All I can do is a hard shutdown and reboot.  This occasionally gives an error message on restart, but has not produced any solutions.
2 There is a message about secure boot not being configured
3 The support app has a cross on it and won't work
No doubt there are other problems, but number 1 is the killer....

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Can't Boot After Bios Update Failure

Feb 22, 2013

I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 running Windows 7 64-bit Pro which has been working fine, but I was thinking about getting an mSata flash drive to cache the hard disk, and reading on this forum discovered that my A01 bios version wasn't up to the job, so tried to update the bios tonight.

I downloaded the 7720A12.exe from the Dell site but wanted to backup my bios first.  Again searching this forum, I saw a post that said there was a backup option when running the exe.  Wrong.

Running it from within windows it immediately said it was going to reboot (I wasn't given an option!).  My laptop powered down as if doing a restart, but immediately hung. 

There was nothing but blackness on the screen, no text, no beeps.  It appeared to be stuck in a boot cycle, as the screen back light was coming on, and off, and on, and off etc, for 10 minutes straight. 

I powered down and powered up and I get the dell logo and can enter the bios setup, but after that, no matter what I do, I get a dos based "BOOT MENU" with just these options on:

Network Boot <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu Setup <- loads the bios settings Diagnostics <- runs a diagnostic program which tests the hardware and reports all tests pass Change boot mode setting <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu

I can't get passed this menu.

I've tried booting from a DVD - both a Windows 7 installation disk, and the Dell recovery DVD I created when I first got the laptop, neither DVD boots, and apart from buzzing the DVD drive, don't have any effect at all. 

Both disks have been tested in another Inspiron laptop I have, and I also set the boot priority order in the bios so that DVD is the first item in the list.

I've also tried a bootable USB stick, but no joy there either.  The light on the stick shows it's being accessed, but I still end up at the Boot Menu above.

Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 Flex :: BIOS Update Now System Won't Boot

Dec 4, 2014

I wanted to do a fresh install but my restore files are in Windows 8 and I wanted 8.1. I used my 8.1 pro disk and created a bootable media for installing using USB. I had to go into the BIOS and change it to legacy before it would see the USB drive. Went ahead and deleted all the partitions then created a single new one for windows. The installation worked flawlessly then I went ahead with the driver installs.

The very first driver was the firmware update. The system updated the firmware without any issues but once it rebooted I only receive the following message "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media or hit any key. The select 'boot manager" to chose a new boot device or to boot to recovery media. When I go hit any key it leaves me with no boot options probably due to them being legacy options. I've tried F2 on startup to get into the bios and change it back to legacy but this never works.. I have also tried F12 trying to get it to let me select the startup drive.

Lenovo Yoga Flex 2 :: 15D - Boot Fail After Latest BIOS Update

Dec 11, 2014

I have a severe problem (I guess) after the latest BIOS Update. Windows 7 freezes during startup.

I own a 64-bit Lenovo FLex 2 15D with AMD A6-6310 and R4, 4GB RAM and a SSHD (8GBSSH). I purchased it without OS and installed Windows 7 - which worked fine so far.

I yesterday updated the BIOS with version 9FCN23WW (for Win7 and Win8), the latest BIOS update. A mistake, it seems.

After Reboot, I first had to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, because it would not let me boot at all. I figured out how to get into the BIOS-Setup to disable this (press Enter 2x, press Tab when in the Boot Menu to access the "Apps Menu", then "SETUP").

Now Win7 begins to start up, but freezes during the startup process (the splash screen with the win flag freezes and looks a bit strange. I used the "protected mode" Windows Startup and saw that the process always hangs when loading "amdkmpfd.sys".

That is basically it.I guess I have to find a way to re-install the previous version of the BIOS.

Now about what I did to fix this (poor, but I tried):

If I try to start from a Win7 installation CD-ROM (actually it is one for Dell PCs, but I guess that is not the problem) and press a key to boot from CD, Windows loads files, shows "Starting Windows"  and at a certain point again just freezes. When I -do not- press a key, WIndows Boot Manager shows up and mentions that "Windows failed to start (etc.)" "File: EFIMicrosoftBootBCD" "An Error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data."

I can't even boot into Linux on a USB stick, because the Windows "Error Recovery" won't let me when I try (just offers to boot to Win7 in protected mode - it could be that it fails immediately and jumps back to Win Startup).
