    MY SON'S LAPTOP COMPUTER WAS STOLEN. WHILE HE WAS ABLE TO LOCK IT AND TRACE IT WITH "FIND MY PC" FUNCTION I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE THIEF'S ABILITY TO BOOT UP FROM A CD/USB. CAN THEY DO THIS?

    Re: All boot options are tried...

    Hi Elda,

    If the boot sequence didn't work, then we suggest try running the laptop in safe mode. To do this, here's a few steps to follow:

    • Power down your laptop.
    • Turn it back on again.
    • When you turn it back on, press F8 repeatedly until the power on option appeared.
    • If you see the boot option "Safe Mode with Networking", choose that option.
    • See if you can boot up in Safe mode.

    We'll look forward to your response.

    Win 10 boots...

    Interesting that it works on that oldie but goody laptop.

    I don't notice any speed lags with Win-10 TP, but I'm using it on an i5-4670K system with an SSD for the boot drive, so it's snappy.

    STOLEN WIN 10 LAPTOP COMPUTER BOOT OPTIONS TO WORRY ABOUT

    laptop doesnt boot automatically

    This is what happened.

    1. Did a repair install and later disabled hibertnate in CMD.
    2. Enabled legacy option ROM in BIOS.
    3. After a few times startup ( i used the system in such mode for 5 days), changed boot option back to default.
    4. Vola!! It boots automatically to win10 without any keypress. Tested it with many starts to confirm the same.
    5. Re-enabled hibernate option using CMD and later selected Fast Startup.
    6. System booted normally, without the need for any keypress.

    I do not know exactly whether such steps resolved the problem or what else happened, hence cannot suggest above steps.

    Many thanks to all members who helped to troubleshoot problems.
