Windows 10 + UBUNTU 17.10 dualboot on HP Envy x360 u000.
After installation, I am not able to make any changes in BIOS. The settings are not "Default". Secure boot is disabled.
I have tried the following things:
- Wipe my HDD and tried to install Windows 10 again -
Windows could not update the computer’s boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed
- Tried to install UBUNTU -
[ 0:000000] [Firmware Bug]: TSC_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata; please update microcode to version: 0x52 (or later)
- Also tried to boot UBUNTU live - same error as above.
- Tried to update/reinstall the HP BIOS firmware with HP BIOS Recover USB -
Error code : 4(0x00000004). I tried both the ways. from windows and with bootable USB. got the same error
- Removed battery and hold the power off button for 1 min. No luck.
Now I am totally stuck here.
I had my old HDD with windows 8 on it and I upgraded with a new SSD but I haven't done anything with my old HDD. So now I am using my laptop with that HDD. To boot windows I am doing manually EFI boot. Still not able to repair the bootloader on that too.
Update 1 (12-7-2017)
So, I am able to boot from UBUNTU 16.04 live USB
- Tried to repair with
Boot-Repair- No luck
Tried to remove/delete bootloader entry with
efibootmgrbut I can't do anything. every time I got this error
sudo efibootmgr -vgives all the details of my SSD (volume ID and all), which I have used to install UBUNTU 17.10 where all the problems occurred in the first place. I am getting the same output even if I removed all the Drives from the motherboard.
So, everything written into BIOS is write protected. I am not able to do anything about that.
