Unable to make changes in BIOS after 17.10 installation

by Prasanna Gajera   Last Updated December 07, 2017 10:02 AM

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 - Not able to update/ Cannot verify
  • 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.
