Can't Get Boot Menu BIOS Option On Asus X750j Laptop?

Jan 24, 2014

My wife has a new Asus X750j Laptop.

I've spent the last day and a half setting it up.Now I want to make a system image of the C: drive using Paragon.

I do this from a bootable DVD, but it isn't set to boot to the DVD first in the boot order.

I've tried tapping the F11, F8, Del, Esc and F2 keys and it just boots into Windows 8.

My computer which has an ASUS motherboard, shows a message when I boot, saying select "Delete" to boot into the UEFI Bios.

But I can't seem to get either a boot menu of the bios option on the laptop.

Setup Installation :: Windows Boot Manager - Deleted UEFI Boot Option?

Mar 24, 2014

After creating a UEFI bootable USB thumb drive with Rufus (using Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO x64), for a Dell Optiplex 3010 (configured as UEFI only, no CSM, latest firmware version, Windows 8 installed), I didn't see a USB boot option, so I tried to add one manually. Unfortunately I erased the existing boot option (boot manager) by mistake. Although there were two boot options for PXE booting, the machine will not start anymore, even when there is an active WDS server on the network.

I also see Led's 2 and 3 lighting up, meaning according to the manual 'hardware ok but bios possibly damaged/corrupt'.

I understand I cannot start the machine from a bios boot disk because of GPT partitioning, and the UEFI USB boot disk I made might be corrupt (as it didn't show up as a boot option), however I don't understand why it won't boot from the PXE network card, as these boot options are still there.

Enable / Disable Secure Boot Watermark

Oct 19, 2013

For those of us who have a PC capable of SecureBoot, but where we have chosen knowingly and intentionally to enable Legacy Boot, there has to be a way to get rid of the watermark. So, how to do it? Using the Group Policy editor to enable/disable "Use enhanced Boot Configuration Data validation profile" had no effect on my Samsung laptop.

How To Enable Full Secure Boot Feature

Nov 20, 2012

I have been playing around with the Secure Boot feature to see if I could tell what properties it might show. Currently, to enable the full Secure Boot feature, I have to use the on board graphics, since my Graphics card does not have a UEFI Op Rom.

So far, I know Windows 7 will not boot on my machine when the Windows 8 Secure Boot bios settings are enabled, which means disabling the CSM (Compatibility Support Module). When the Windows 8 Secure Boot is on and I try to Boot Windows 7, I am returned to the Bios with a notification that some settings have been reset for compatibility. Windows 7 boots fine after that.

Because many systems will have devices that will not meet the Windows 8 standards, like Graphic Cards, the secure boot may really only be fully available on new systems.

But the CSM seems to be a way to bridge the gap by ignoring certain non-UEFI Op Rom devices during boot. Msinfo32.exe shows Secure Boot ON with the module enabled and certain options being set. I am thinking that would stop Root Kits, but have not found anything to confirm that it would.

I suppose I need to go find a really bad Root Kit somewhere to test !!

How To Enable Secure Boot On Windows 8 At Installation

Oct 7, 2013

I am running Windows 8 x64 without secure boot enabled. According to the screen shot

secure boot is "Unsupported" but my motherboard has secure boot features in it. Its just that I didn't have secure boot enabled when I installed Windows 8 so Windows is unable to use secure boot now. What are the steps for setting up my computer for installing windows in secure boot mode ?

Pc Specs-:
Motherboard: Gigabyte H77m-D3H (rev 1.1)GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-H77M-D3H (rev. 1.1)
BIOS ver: F11 (Latest)
Ram:8 Gb DDR3 Corsair
HardDisk-: 1) Western Digital 160 GB (boot) 2) Western Digital 1 TB.

I had mailed Gigabyte support on how to enable secure boot they told me the following-:

"We suggest you can first back up data, reset BIOS items we mentioned in first mail, format your HDD into GPT partition and then reinstall Genuine Windows 8 to test again."

So I am asking how can I format my HDD into a GPT ? Is there anything else I need to before I install Windows 8 again ?? What are the exact steps to follow.

Also, there are two things is there any app available via which I can backup my entire C drive including Program Files, all my installed apps, and all of my hotfixes and Windows updates ?? Because I don't want to reinstall everything again and again update my Windows 8.

Hardware Drivers :: Can't Get New Laptop To Work With Old Printer - Enable Bidirectional Communication

May 1, 2014

I am trying to load Lexmark 5470 printer and get "enable bidirectional communication" error message. I am trying to load it on a brand new Toshiba laptop running 8.1 Suggested fix is to go to "ports" tab in the printer dialog box and enable it. I can't find the enable box to click. Any thoughts on resolving this issue. Both Lexmark and Microsoft won't talk to me w/o a credit card. The ptr is 5 years old and is not worthy of any significant investment, although it did work well.

Setup Installation :: Can't Enable Secure Boot On BIOS

Oct 11, 2013

I had a bit of a problem with Malware which led me to reinstall windows 8. I had also at the time been trying to install Linux to dual boot beside it. However, upon reinstalling I got the annoying watermark saying "Secureboot isn't configured correctly." Having decided I would rather remove the watermark and having gone back into the BIOS (with a reinstall) and trying to enable secure boot I get a message - "CSM is Loaded! Disable the CSM via Setup and repeat operation after Restart".

However there is, as far a I can see no option to disable the CSM in my bios - I've tried disabling anything related to Legacy and reinstalling both Ubuntu and Windows 8 as well as wiping the drive and jumping the CMOS as well as updating the BIOS.

I've tried every permutation in the BIOS. Could possibly be an incompatibility with graphics card, but wouldn't know where to start on that end if it is.

How To Restore 8.1 Without USB Boot Option

May 3, 2014


Win 8.1 USB Recovery Drive
Win 8.1 Full Install Retail 64 bit DVD
Legacy BIOS that does not offer USB in Boot Priority
Internal DVD
USB ports

Question: What would be a secure plan to be able to restore a new disk to a near-current state?

I'm thinking a second HDD and something like Acronis and bypass the MS backup tools. Or perhaps boot from the install DVD and use Macrium Reflect.

Windows To Go - No Fast Boot Option?

Jun 18, 2014

Windows to go doesn't seem to have a Fast boot option -- Not a real issue since I use an SSD for this but just curious. I suppose if Windows to Go is being used on different computers and the idea is to use the external device totally then it obviously doesn't make sense to store a file on the Host PC's HDD.

Anyway two screenshots -- you can see the Windows to Go doesn't have a fast boot option. Ist screenshot is from Windows to Go -- both running Windows 8.1 enterprise update 1 x-64 on REAL (not Virtual) Machines.

Setup Installation :: Add Boot Option After Windows 8 Install?

Jan 15, 2013

I've seen all the tips on setting up a dual boot while installing Win 8 with an existing win 7 installation but I can't find any way to add a boot option AFTER installing win 8.I have an image of win 7 that I want to put on another hard drive and then be able to dual boot either 8 or 7.

I tried using easybcd and it appeared to save the entry but it wasn't there when I booted up.

On a side note I also can't seem to change the timeout value before it boots. It always reverts to 30 seconds. I tried msconfig with the same results.

I do have an added boot menu for a recovery via Farstone recovery. It added it to the win 8 boot menu so it must be possible to add the win 7 somehow.

Setup Installation :: Remove Ubuntu Boot Option From OS List

Feb 2, 2013

I had ubuntu within my windows 7 earlier. Later when i installed windows 8, i formatted the partition ( E: ) in which ubuntu was installed, since the wubi uninstaller was not working. Still when i start my system, it shows ubuntu listed in the boot list. I tried to load it once. It gave an error. There is no error when i select the default windows 8.

Now i checked the boot option in the msconfig as per the thread, but only windows 8 is listed there, no ubuntu. But still it is listed in the boot menu. I tried the disk manager, the only partition without NTFS file system is the one with status "healthy (OEM partition)". I dont know whether its a ubuntu partition. And there is no option to delete it also. No other ubuntu partition. I want to remove the ubuntu boot option from my os list. How to do it?

Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

Updates :: No Boot After Updates - System Restore Only Option Available?

Aug 19, 2013

I have had to system restore 3 or 4 times in the last week or so as Windows 8 refuses to boot after installing the latest updates discovered from the last couple of weeks (though some are from December 2012)

I have unchecked all the current updates and have decided against installing them as they seem to be preventing Windows from booting.

Pattern - "Restart to install updates"

Restart locks on the start screen - Restart again and locks again (repeat this process 3x)

"Windows is automatically repairing..." - Fails

"Windows must restore settings to a previous time..." - Usually succeeds, sometimes fails.

Then I can get back into Windows.

As soon as I install these updates, I won't get back into Windows until I system restore since before the updates and my build won't remain stable unless I prevent Windows from installing these updates.What could be going on?

They are quite big updates (totalling ~740mb and have all been discovered in the last week or so though some date back to late last year)
