    Will not boot, will not allow access to BIOS


    This is not a BSOD, but I could not find another forum that fits my situation. If I need to take this question elsewhere please let me know.

    I am trying to resurrect an old PC of my Dad's. It is an old i3-530 CPU on a ASRock H55M Pro motherboard. I believe I updated it from Windows 7 to 10. Not for sure though.

    This morning I tried booting it for the first time in 8 (?) years. At first I got the mobo splash screen, but would not load windows. That time I was able to enter the BIOS. I was looking for the boot drive. Anyway I made no changes, canceled and rebooted. This time I did not get the splash screen. More like POST information. A couple of options which I could not get to do anything. No option to access the BIOS. See pic.

    I have built a few computers. I have never not been able to access the BIOS. I would consider myself a novice at troubleshooting things like this. Can someone offer a starting point.

  2. Windows stuck in automatic repair; Can't access BIOS/ boot menu

    I've changed the boot order through both BIOS and the boot manager, as my original post stated. Neither did anything, but both were functional in the past. Neither listed the windows boot manager, either. Previously, it would boot just as expected whenever
    other media was set as the first option, so I'm pretty sure there are no issues there.

    As my original post suggested, I've already tried out the steps you gave. I've gone through all the options listed in the boot menu, UEFI or not.

    My BIOS and boot menu settings were at their defaults when all of this started, so that's been tried already, if those are what you're referring to.

    Latest Build Windows 10 fail, wont allow BIOS access


    I don't see how that it is possible for the Windows 10 DVD to prevent you from accessing the BIOS - access to the BIOS occurs before any DVD is read.
    Is your DVD drive USB? Maybe it is interfering.
    Suggest you take the DVD out, boot to BIOS, set the DVD as the boot device and save the setting, , then stick the DVD in and then reset.
