Hey, I had an accident and spilled liquid on my laptop. I dried everything and restarted it. I was getting a 0xc0000098 error and asking for repair. I tried a million things and even took the laptop to a repair shop, I am unable to repair or clean install windows 10 64 bit. I was successful in installing Win 10 32 bit.
I tried updating the Bios as I believed there might be some issues with it preventing the install of 64 bit (UEFI) but in Win 10 32 bit I get a "Unable to mount EFI partition" error when trying to do the bios flash.
I now installed Linux Mint 19 without any issues. I tried running Win 10 from an external HDD but I still get the same message 0cx0000098 error on boot. I did the Win Install from my desktop.
Is there any way I could flash the bios in Linux environment? Or any other option?
I hope this is all clear.
