  1. Computer wont boot unless I enter the Bios and then exit.


    SO, I have a Dell computer and whenever I turn it off or try to restart it, it will beep 2 times and wont boot, however if i press the F2 key and enter then exit the BIOS it will start up normally. So, I check The BIOS for error messages, and it shows a Rear Fan Error, but the fan seems to be working just fine I might try replacing the fan with a new one, but I doubt that is the problem, but I hope it is

  2. Windows 10 will only boot if selected from the BIOS boot menu.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • You mean to say, every time you need to make changes to Boot Order in BIOS, to start your computer correctly?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    I suspect that the problem might be due to outdated BIOS update
    or with Boot Configuration data. Suggest you to check for the latest BIOS update and Chipset drivers for your device hardware on Manufacturer website. If you find a new one, try to update the same to see if it correct
    the issue. If problem still persist, then I suggest to rebuild Boot Configuration Data to see if it makes any difference.

    Let us try to repair your computer by creating a Windows 10 Bootable media (I.e. USB or DVD) using
    Media Creation Tool.
    Use your computer or some other connected to Internet for creating a Bootable media (Windows 10 ISO image file). Once you're ready with Bootable Media, follow the below mentioned
    steps.

    • Insert the Windows installation disc in the disc drive or connect USB media, and then start the computer.
    • Press a key when the message Press any key to boot from CD or DVD appears.

      If your PC does not detect the media automatically
      • During the restart process, read the screen for any instructions that explain how to interrupt normal startup and enter the basic input/output system (BIOS) setup utility. Most PCs use the F2, F10, ESC, or DEL key to begin the BIOS Setup.
      • Look for a tab in the BIOS Setup Utility that is labeled Boot Order,
        Boot Options, or Boot. Following the directions on the screen, use the arrow keys to go to the
        Boot Order, then press Enter.
      • Locate the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive (this might be called Removable Device) in the Boot list. Following the directions on the screen, use the arrow keys to move the drive up so that it appears first in the Boot list. Press Enter. The boot order
        sequence is now changed to boot from the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.
      • Press F10 to save your changes and to exit the BIOS Setup Utility. Select Yes in the confirmation window. The PC will restart. Allow the PC to restart normally. The scan will take a few minutes and remove any malware that may be infecting your computer.
    • Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next.
    • Click Repair your computer.
    • Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click
      Next
      .
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot. Select
      Advanced Options > Command Prompt
      under Advanced Options.
    • Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press
      ENTER.
      This command will rebuild boot configuration data if in case any issue with Boot files causing this issue.

    Once you done with the above steps, see if the problem still persist.

    Let us know how it went.

  3. Windows 10 Pro won't boot unless I enter BIOS first

    I got a Windows 10 Pro license through Microsoft for our nonprofit. I had a new computer with NO operating system on it. I had issues trying to load Windows 10 Pro onto the new computer via a USB drive. I tried to change something in the BIOS settings to
    make it work, but it didn't. After calling Microsoft support, they helped me get Windows 10 Pro installed with a very simple fix. Now, however, every time I boot the computer it gives me a colorful screen without ever doing anything. When I turn it off, and
    then turn it on again, entering BIOS, I am able to exit BIOS and Windows loads and opens. The computer then seems to run fine. Can someone please help me fix the BIOS so it just loads straight to Windows?

    Thank you!

    Daniel

    Computer won't boot and hdd has failed? Error 2000-0142?

    Hi,



    Thank you for your response.


    • What exactly happens when you connect USB to the system? Is it getting detected or not?
    If your PC does not detect the media automatically then I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.


      • During the restart process, read the screen for any instructions that explain how to interrupt normal startup and enter the basic input/output system (BIOS) setup utility. Most PCs use the F2, F10, ESC, or DEL key to begin the
        BIOS Setup.

      • Look for a tab in the BIOS Setup Utility that is labeled
        Boot Order, Boot Options, or Boot. Following the directions on the screen, use the arrow keys to go to the
        Boot Order, then press Enter.

      • Locate the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive (this might be called Removable Device) in the Boot list. Following the directions on the screen, use the arrow keys to move the drive up so that it appears first in the Boot list. Press
        Enter. The boot order sequence is now changed to boot from the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.

      • Press F10 to save your changes and to exit the BIOS Setup Utility. Select
        yes in the confirmation window. The PC will restart. Allow the PC to restart normally. The scan will take a few minutes and remove any malware that may be infecting your computer.
    Warning:


    • Be careful when changing BIOS settings. The BIOS interface is designed for advanced users, and it's possible to change a setting that could prevent your computer from starting correctly.

    • Updating BIOS should only be done if necessary (to solve a compatibility problem, for example). It can be a complicated process, and if an error occurs, your computer could be rendered inoperable. Be sure
      to follow the manufacturer's instructions exactly.
    And also I suggest you to refer the link below and follow the step given by Linney (MVP) and check if it helps.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
