  1. 1st Boot Fails, 2nd Boot Works (Bios?)


    Greetings,

    So over the last weeks I tried Ubuntu Mate and Zorin. I installed each OS on my Mini PC twice and although interesting they weren't stable enough to switch to. I then installed Win10 again and it's actually zippy and works fine. Except for --

    -- a strange booting issue. When I hit the Power button on the back of the unit, the little light comes on, I get the Beelink Splash Page (the OEM) with the spinning dots. Then the screen goes black and the little light goes out. Yes. Then I hit the power button again and it boots properly.

    I had to play with the BIOS to make it boot Linux. I believe I set everything back properly. Did I? Does this sound like a BIOS issue to you?

    :)

    AMD data change.......no boot up problem

    1st: go to bios, check boot device TYPE priority (cdrom/hdd/etc.)
    then, go to hard disk drives (still under boot category), and check if your system hard drive is at 1st place (IF you have more than 1 hdd)
    2nd: if your bios boot settings are OK, run windows 7 installation disc, go to repair your system, run fixmbr and fixboot options (i think they are at same option on windows 7 repair - startup repair or something like that)
    3rd: if your windows 7 installation disc cannot find your windows 7 installation, reinstall it, but take care - you may have bad sectors on your hdd

    please, go step by step, and dont read 3rd step warning before you try 1st and 2nd xD

    you can also disable "LAN boot ROM" option under "integrated devices" bios category to never see that meesage again (at least 3 NVIDIA Boot Agent lines xD )

    Booting to BIOS

    look to see if it has some sort of "boot to bios" option. im lost with this one....i cant think of much more than what ive suggested. Most Motherboards have different Bios/booting options. Try them all , see if makes a change.

    if nothing works, time to contact the Manufacturer.

    Sorry I couldnt be of help
