  1. Bios Battery


    Win 10 pro 64bit

    Hi

    This post is indirectly linked to my post on Hardware updating. My thoughts on this were prompted by the battery on my current computer's motherboard running out of charge (yes it is quite old but still works pretty well).

    Changing the battery was simple enough and whilst I knew that the bios would need resetting what I didn't fully appreciate is the extent that the motherboard contains details about the Windows 10 licence.

    Fortunately I had unknowingly installed Win 10 with the bios set with secure boot off. The factory reset condition was with secure boot on and therefore I was unable to boot up after changing the battery.

    After a while I managed to reset the BIOS to secure boot off and everything then worked fine.

    My objective in this post is twofold. Firstly if I had set up with secure boot on (ie the disc expected to see details of the Win 10 activation key on the motherboard) would I ever have been able to boot that disc up again.

    Secondly when using secure boot is there any procedure available to change the BIOS battery so that the information stored in the BIOS remains intact and the boot up proceeds normally after a battery change.

    Many thanks in advance for members contributions

    :)
