I have a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5061 Laptop and when I try to access my BIOS it has a password which I dont know what it is, but I want to enable VT-x. Is there anyway that I can change my BIOS settings from within Xubuntu 13.10?
I have install Ubuntu server 12.04 in my Samsung Ultrabook series 5. I have some problem with my laptop and not able to go to bios setting by pressing any keys: F2, F10, F12, Del, F etc... Please don't give suggestion to go to bios setting with this option.
I am looking for command in Ubuntu such that my laptop reboot to bios setting directly. without pressing any keys. Thanks.
I have recently updated an aging XP machine to Windows 8.1. However, when I start it up and try to get the BIOS by pressing F2, it just loads Windows instead. The BIOS was accessible just fine when XP was still installed.
It's an ASRock motherboard with AMI BIOS. F2 is for BIOS and F11 is for the boot menu. However, pressing any of these just causes Windows to load.
I just received an x1 carbon in the mail and have been trying to install ubuntu on it today. Whenever I try to boot from my usb image of ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64, I get a message saying "image failed to verify with **ACCESS DENIED**..". I tried disabling UEFI boot in bios with no luck.
My usb image works fine on my pc and my other laptop. What is going on with my thinkpad?
Hi: suppose I want to access BIOS int 10h, function 01h, Set Cursor Type. As UEFI images provide legacy support for BIOS services, in theory I can do it, because the int 10h instruction belongs to the processor instruction set in my machine (Pentium G62). But the OS ought to grant me access permission. Perhaps there is a syscall allowing BIOS int calls?
