  1. Can't Boot to USB with Alienware Desktop


    My brother's computer is an alienware aurora r5 desktop from dell, pre-configured, windows 10 version 1903 build # 18362.449, with the only additions/changes being a new 500 GB Samsung 970 Evo SSD (for whatever OS updates, programs that can't be installed on other HDD's, the works), and a 2 TB Seagate Firecuda HDD for all other programs and misc files (Documents, Videos, Photos, etc...). Now I got macrium reflect on his computer and a few old HDD's on hand to make image backups when needed, but im trying to boot to this Windows 10 USB I made using a downloaded win10 iso and rufus

    I shutdown the computer, boot it up, and press F12 to get to the boot menu, and the only boot options I see are "Windows Boot Manager", and 2 "Onboard something something" entries, but no flash drive to boot to

    Can anyone tell me how to Boot to USB with an Alienware Aurora r5, if I need to either reinstall windows 10 completely or use the command prompt on said usb to fix stuff with his C: drive if something goes wrong?

    :)

    USB boot for bios update

    Did the first step. It already doesn't work. Note the capacities and drive letters M:/N: The HP utility is about to format my raid-1 volume containing my 2 750gb drives. It thinks it's the usb stick. I can not select any other drives in the HP utility. My 512mb usb stick is U:.

    Any other suggestions?

    Alienware Area 51 m15x BIOS Update Released

    If you were among the group of people experiencing overheating issues with your Alienware Area 51 m15x laptop, then there are some good news for you. A new BIOS update, version X29b P3A30 is now available. The update allegedly allows VGA fans to increase up to 5400 rpm and thus better cool the GPU. To obtain the new BIOS, you'll need to email the m15x support line (L: Area51_m15x@alienware.com). In reply you should receive a link to the BIOS .zip archive. Once you download the small file, Alienware recommends to follow the steps described in the Read full story marker.



    Open Nero Ultra Edition, click Backup, and then click “Burn Image to Disc.” Next, select the file “m15x_x29b.iso from the unzipped folder.

    • Plug your AC adapter in
    • Disconnect all third-party peripherals
    • Don’t turn off the computer or restart it during the update
    • Don’t eject your DVD/Blu-ray drive during the update.
    Steps:
    • Open BIOS by tapping F12 during boot
    • Set BIOS to boot from your CD-ROM drive first
    • Save and exit
    • Upon reboot, the BIOS flash update will proceed
    • Click “Yes” through the prompts
    • Restart

    Can't Boot to USB with Alienware Desktop

    Help with USB Boot Image

    I have tried this once before it didnt work for me either. The only thing i have ever heard that will boot off usb that works is linux. Most of the boot off usb device is designed for a usb floppy and that floppy normally has to be the exact same type they use for that model. Thats what i have been told about my alienware laptop. There is something i will try shortly though and thats to go to my desktop make a boot floppy and copy the exact material to my usb and try it that way.

    I am not saying give up cause i want to know how to do this also.
