Updating bios in ubuntu
Contrary to what most people will tell you, I’m telling you that in most cases, UPDATE YOUR BIOS.I do this whole puter-building thing a lot, and I’ve been doing it for a long time.Furthermore, when I did finally manage to get Windows to boot, I was greeted with this Windows load screen: WTH?! CSM is a feature of UEFI BIOSes where the mobo will (hopefully automatically) detect whether it should use “legacy BIOS” or “new UEFI” features for setting up your puter and launching the OS. Well, don’t forget to set the proper OS drive as your 1st boot device. Finally, note that with newer motherboards, you sometimes have to attach your USB keyboard and mouse to USB 3 ports.Yeah, it’s crazy, but that’s what happens when USB 2 ports start disappearing from the back of new motherboards!This is the way I managed to do it using Hiren boot disk. Download Hiren Boot Disk and create Hiren Boot disk on USB (Google this if you need to) Copy Dell file to HBD USB Enter Bios of latitude by pressing F2 key at startup. Went into Bios, reenabled boot option I had previously disabled. Enable "start up" from USB and disable all other startup options. Insert HBD on USB stick, start computer, boot from the XP option that comes up.
I tried most of the ways in the forums, which did not work. After HBD options came up, opened XP and shut down normally. Find the dell file on the USB stick, copy to XP desktop. In some cases, these problems can indicate a defective motherboard or other component.If you can’t get in because you see a blank screen instead of a “boot logo” during the BIOS POST (power on self test), you’ll need to: Right.Now that you’re in the BIOS, you’ll need to check a few things.
