Win 10 Home 64 bit Version 1607

 

If I understand, this computer should have UEFI, rather than old-hat BIOS.

 

The instructions I have found; 

 

settings/update & security/recovery to "Advanced Setup".

 

Restart Now/troubleshoot/advanced options/startup settings/restart ...

 

does not get me into UEFI.  The option that's supposed to be there is simply completely missing. I guess Microsoft has changed their minds about putting it there. Or, it's an upgrade-from-Win 7 hiccup.

 

 

I can access what must be part of UEFI by restarting and pressing ESC. But all that is there is Please Select Boot Device, with 3 options, non being USB.

 

And that is it; there is nothing else available there. I've tried everything I can think of to page-over or anything. I was exploring changing boot order, so I can download new Windows 10 iso from flash drive.

 

As always

sincere gratitude.

Are you having a problem related to the BIOS?

 

Please post the make and model of this computer.  If it is a custom build please post the make and model of the motherboard.

 

Most motherboards have the choice for either the UEFI or BIOS.  In order to access the BIOS/UEFI you will need to boot into the BIOS.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
