Predator G9-591 - No OS and can't load BIOS

JellyJonJellyJon Posts: 2Member New User
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?  

Many thanks,
JellyJon :)
