It concerns UEFI. (Previously a windows 10 home edition but well past that.) I cannot get UEFI to boot, no keyboard command works, advanced startup (f8) all options there do not work. I cannot boot a Linux USB, i cannot boot a windows 10 USB ( i don't have a disc drive) powering off properly and restarting doesn't work. i am utterly locked out of my PC at the most basic level. Because of previously problems where my UEFIi stopped recognizing a drive i really needed it to recognize (other methods available to me were not at all easy to do) I decided after lack of sleep that i would try to force it to by goign into boot options in UEFI and disabling recognition of all the drives it could see.
This included my second HDD drive (the first being ssd) and also disabling recognition of my sandisk USB (where my windows 10 USB install was), i tried introducing a new USB with Linux, but at this point it just doesn't boot anything at all. I understand that you guys will want more info, (I have fast boot enabled for example) and will suggest some common help, but i stress i really have dug into the internet here. If people ask i can detail the backstory to this problem, but until this last decision to disable recognition of the drives, UEFI always worked properly (no other options changed) now the UEFI fails to load and cannot recognize any drive or USB media at all. All help appreciated, as i am now considering new motherboard. Thank you. I am wondering about introducing a new USB drive with windows 10 for USB install on it(this requires another purchases, and i have already spent about 90 pounds towards external devices on the wider problem before the UEFI issue) anyway thanks... I forgot to mention that in advanced startup (f8), (only thing that shows anything, other than the 'press f2 or del to enter uefi) it gives options for any drive both internal and connected via usb, including boot manager, but these all lead to blank screens. THANKS!
