I noticed that there is a BIOS update that fixes the issue of not being able to boot into BIOS without an OS... Sadly this discovery happened after a virus deleted my Windows folder. I have no way of getting into the BIOS to update it.
I have tried:
- USB boot
- DVD boot
- Network boot
- installing an OS on the HDD with it plugged into my desktop, then putting it back in the laptop.
- unplugging the laptop battery and CMOS battery for an hour, then trying again.
No matter what I do, the laptop just loads to the Predator logo and sits there. I have tried every combo of botton presses I can find to access BIOS and Boot Menus, but nothing works.
I am assuming BIOS is set to secure boot on, which is why none of my boot methods have worked.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
