  1. Asks for Passwords on Cold Boot / Reboot


    Again, like dark theme by time, Android and iOS do this already, it's safer than allowing Windows Hello all the time.

    IIRC there is a Group Policy option for this(?), but this should be a function for all.

    Cheers.

  2. Reboot loop on cold boots in the morning.

    I mean possibly a bad write of the first bios. What happens in the dual bios is if the first bios fails to load, it cycles like 3-5 times trying to boot said bios chip. When it fails to load that correctly, the second chip automatically kicks in and you can boot.

    I suggest trying a flash to the latest bios using a thumbdrive formated in fat32 with the bios file on it. reboot the PC and hit the Home key to get into the flash utility, then search for the bios and load it.

  3. OK, Password problem...Mint

    Linux Mint - Community
    You can reset your password following the next steps:

    • Reboot your computer / Turn your computer on.
    • Hold down the Shift key at the start of the boot process to enable the GNU GRUB boot menu (if it does not show)
    • Press ESC at the GNU GRUB prompt.
    • Press e for edit.
    • Use the Arrow keys to highlight the line that begins with kernel and press the e key.
    • Go to the very end of the line and add rw init=/bin/bash
    • Press Enter and then press b to boot your system.
    • Your system will boot up to a passwordless root shell.
    • Type in passwd yourusername
    • Set your new password.
    • Restart your system.

    Asks for Passwords on Cold Boot / Reboot

    Very slow POST process upon cold boot but fast reboots

    It suggests a hardware problem on cold boot the BIOS searches for hardware on reboot it doesn't as it knows what's there. So it could be struggling to find hard drive or there is a irq/dma conflict it true to resolve
