Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
Was the HD with Windows installed when UEFI was enabled in the BIOS?
Try setting your BIOS to default settings, you can press F9 on your keyboard when you are in the BIOS and then press F10 to save all changes.
If that does not work, try a BIOS recovery to the latest version you have already installed 0048.
Please let me know how it goes.
Hi Ivan, tried those none of it worked. BIOS recovery from the USB doesn't happen, just get a blank screen for 4 or 5 seconds then unit momentarily powers off and boots to the HD. As for pulling the security jumper that is physically impossible due to its location between the inner case and memory module carrier.
What is the hard drive model?
Is it Windows® 10 already installed on the hard drive or you are just planning to install it?
Was this hard drive brought from another computer or it is new? If the HDD was already installed on your system most likely it was installed as legacy mode and not as UEFI mode.
Can you tried with another HDD?
Make sure the HDD is properly installed on your system. Try taking out the hard drive, disconnected and then reconnected it.
Please let me know.
Sorry for delayed response, hurt my arm making using most things a pain.
Anyway problem is now sorted (computer wise). It turned out to be HDD formatting issue, where restoring a backup from a disk in MBR formatting changed the GPT formatted disk to MBR. I used the mbr2gpt command line to overcome that.
I also noticed that .049 BIOS is the current BIOS so I updated to it as well.
Thanks for the assistance, just sorry I couldn't reply earlier.
Thank you for taking your time to share with us how you solved the problem and I’m sorry about your arm, I hope it can heal soon.
