My problem is that the f12 key does not work on the new machine and I do not know how to create a boot order sequence that will permit me to boot from a DVD or USB drive instead of the hard drive. So at this point, I cannot use the bootable recovery disk that I prepared.
I understand that there is now UEFI technology that controls booting. Edited by hamluis, 05 May - PM. Moved from Win 7 to Win 8 - Hamluis. Press f10 to save the changes, you may be asked to press Y to confirm your choice, the exit the BIOS. Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.
You never know when one will leave you. No need to use a backup disk or USB, the Reset feature in Windows 8 will return your system to its factory state. Nevertheless, an extra backup image is always recommended in case the OEM restore partition gets corrupted. From what I see on the 'net F2 is the key you should use. Also, even after setting the UEFI firmware to Legacy you still may not see an option to boot from an optical drive unless a disk is already in the tray.
On some computers you can also press F12 of F11 to choose a device to boot from. You should enquire from Dell and find out what these keys are.When you buy a new device, you expect a lot from that. And if that device does not fulfill your demands, you get annoyed easily. Unfortunately, many Dell Inspiron users face such problems. We are here to guide you on how to solve the problem. There would be the possibility of two issues.
If your computer does not get started, then you need to figure out many things like software breakdown and hardware loss. Most of the time, security software is known as antivirus causes problems. In that case, you need to remove such software temporary from your system and then run your laptop to get sure that the security software is the culprit or not.
If this would be the reason, then you need to adjust your security setting by installing another authentic antivirus. Instead of this, corrupted drivers or small system errors can be the reason for Windows crashing and getting stuck. Remove all external devices, then reconnect them carefully and then turn on your laptop.
Above we have discussed a few possibilities that might not allow your system to boot. Now investigate the problems that cause Dell laptop stuck and appear black screen during bootup. Is that because you installed any app or update your Windows?
Or did you attach an external device that may cause issues in booting? This consideration will help you out to get the root-cause and make you able to fix that on your own without pursuing any help. When you got an error when your computer started getting stuck then recall that error as different mistakes have a different meaning which you need to Google. If all the above steps get failed and still your laptop is not working, then you should take some actions which we are going to discuss below.Booting Windows from an SD CARD???
When your computer gets hanged, restart your system. It is not the usual way of resetting your laptop. It is a forced way to reboot the computer. Just power off by pressing the Power button for 10 to 20 seconds till the power light goes off. Then disconnect the power cord or AC adapter and if there is an option of removing batteries in your Dell Inspiron then remove the cells.
I have a Dell Inspiron series with core i7 processor its 64bit and also boots windows with uefi. The problem is, when I try to install ubuntu this way, after rebooting, my system boots directly to windows 10 and the grub option does not even appear, let alone the actual bootloader screen to select which OS I want to boot.
I assume my problem is that I can not install ubuntu correctly since I have to boot the usb in legacy mode when trying to install. Also, the filesystem on the usb appears as FAT32 which should be recognizable to windows to support usb uefi booting. Can anyone help me with a workaround or anything? Now the most important operation The pc will now restart, when the Dell logo is coming, press F12 again, till the boot menu appears.
You don't say what tool you used to create your USB drive. This is a critical detail because not all boot programs are created equal. Rufus and Unetbootin usually work well for creating EFI-bootable media, but this varies somewhat from one computer to another, so even if you used one of those you might try something else. This will require that Secure Boot be disabled, but once rEFInd is up and running, it should enable you to boot Ubuntu.

Кард-ридер не считывает карту SD/карту памяти
Viewed k times. Thanks for your comment, Im currently trying a reinstall with installing the bootloader to the efi partition that windows uses. I tried what you suggested and when selecting the efi file there are two, BOOTx EFI and grubx When boot both of those options, they both take me to the grub command line and nothing else.
What can I do? Do you have a grub. Possible duplicate of this question: askubuntu.Menu Menu. Search Everywhere Threads This forum This thread. Search titles only. Search Advanced search…. Everywhere Threads This forum This thread.

Now the problem is that, unlike the situation in the video, my laptop doesn't automatically boot from the SSD but continues to boot from the HDD. When I do boot from my SSD this way, it works flawlessly.
Would formatting the HDD work? I'm afraid since SSD was the one initially offline due to signature collision, formatting the HDD will cause problems Any help would be appreciated!

I was not able to boot this laptop from a bootable SD card which works just fine on other laptops HP, Samsung, Gateway.
It seems that only Dell laptops have a problem with that. They don't seem to treat SD cards as bootable devices.
The laptop sees the card just fine otherwise so the card reader is functional, and the laptop can read and write files to the card. Is there any way e. Appreciate any suggestion in advance. Go to Solution. Unfortunately you will be unable to boot from the SD card. View solution in original post.
How to fix a Dell Inspiron laptop that won’t boot into Windows
Thanks MicroTest for trying to help. Strange, cuz otherwise the SD cards are being perceived by the system as any other removable media like USB for example.
Or is there any plan to add such feature in the future? Most other laptop manufacturers already provide that, so I'd venture to guess that it is a pretty common feature and not really big deal to implement.
It is disappointing that the DELL laptops do not have it. I am otherwise satisfied with my laptop. I understand your concern. I did learn that CF cards have a controller to allow them to be read as a hard drive. YesI agree with your question. Why on dell bios menu so poor features. Especially after I upgraded to a new version N bios A08 and A09even changed the menu a bit more. Why DELL which is one of well-known brands even poor feature?
