  1. Windows 10 booting to BIOS after fresh install?


    Just a quick disclaimer: I've used Linux all my life ever since I got my first PC. I've never owned a computer which has had Windows on it for longer than 12 hours. It's very possible that I'm missing something super obvious here and if that's the case I apologise!

    So basically I've installed Windows 10 on my laptop via a live usb as I need to use Windows for a program for school (WINE doesn't work unfortunately). I've wiped my SSD and created a live usb rather painlessly and the installation seems to go fine. HOWEVER, as soon as I reboot and remove the usb I'm sent straight into the BIOS. Running the troubleshooting tool included on the live usb yields no clues, and the terminal seems very bare bones (missing basic commands like "ls" lol).

    I've disabled fast boot and secure boot and made sure I'm booting in UEFI mode, and reinstalled windows now 3 times but still no luck. Any help much appreciated, although I do find it amusing that Arch is probably easier to install than Windows these days

    Fresh windows install help.

    Hi.
    I have Samsung Series 7 NP7005ZA-S0AUS laptop pc. I decided to do a fresh windows install so I used a flash drive to re-install windows (I formatted the hard drive at the begnining of the installation). When the laptop booted first time in the installation process, I got a screen saying boot menu but it's empty. I clicked alt+ctl+de, the laptop restarts and gets me back to the same screen. I entered the bios and made sure the hd is on the top of the list and save/restarted but same issue. I tried loading bios default settings and that did not help either. I noticed in the boot menu that there are exclamation marks next to the HD and the SATA DVD drives, not sure what that means but they were not there before. I honestly think a bios update can do the trick but there is no way to upgrade the bios of a samsung laptop without Windows like my case so I am stuck.
    Any help will be very much appreciated.
    Notice: The hard drive has 8GB msata built in.

    Windows 10 booting to BIOS after fresh install?

    windows 10 slow boot

    I was having a slow boot issue on my Windows 7 install a little while back. It would take about 30 - 40 extra seconds to boot up for whatever reason.

    I would try following these steps, while this didn't solve my issue, it did increase Read/Write to where it should be.

    In the end, I had to reinstall my Windows 7 entirely to fix the booting issue. It was taking around 35 seconds to boot, and after the fresh install it takes about 7 seconds to boot.
