Hey I tried to install Fedora Linux on my computer using the EFI features of the motherboard. It didn't quite work out as expected so I played around with the tool efibootmgr and tried to add some entrys (I did that with other EFI boards and it went smooth). On this board however it had not the desired effect. Infact at first I thought nothing had changed until I realized that I can't change any of the BIOS settings. Whenever I change something in the BIOS it is changed on the screen and remains changed when I change tabs and switch back. however on hitting F10 and confirming with y the computer resets and after the reset the settings are back as before the change. Note that at no point I get an error.
If I try to save the Save a Profile and hit F10 It says not all the profiles could be stored (Its my first profile so space shouldnt be an issue).
I already tried to do an BIOS upgrade however this succeeded(so the flash should be ok) but it didn't change a thing.
I'm pretty much out of alternatives now and have no Idea on how to fix this!
I hope you guys have an Ideasettings
Hi, sorry for not replying back for so long.
1. I try to change the settings regarding bootup (disable uefi, changing bootorder).
1.1 The changes are marked yellow and are in fact changed.
2. Then I exit using F10 and then [z] (german layout)
2.1 The computer resets.
3. While Bootup I hit F2 at the apropriate time and look for the settings I changed.
3.1 They have the initial value.
PS: It still works to set and reset passwords
EFI should be able to change BIOS settings even if there is an invalid setting in the EFI-BOOTMENU-FLASH...(It should even be possible to reset this said bootmenu) There sould be some place to create firmwarebug tickets every open source project has such a thing why are the big companies so resistant to improving their software?
