    BIOS fast boot mistake


    I just wanted to install Kalilinux in my windows(dual boot).So I was watching a tutorial,then i went to BIOS then just enabled fastboot,(because i just thought that would speed up the pc),But now i am unable to enter into BIOS to install linux.I dont want to remove the CMOS battery(I am not a hardware pro),I wanted to see if there is any other fix.

    NOTE:
    Don't post any tutorial how to reset CMOS.

    Hello Sasidev,

    You could use the method in the top tutorial below to boot to your UEFI firmware settings from within Windows 10, then be able to disable Fast Boot.

    What is the brand and model number of your motherboard, or PC (if OEM)?

    Are you saying that you cannot enter BIOS at all, or
    you cannot enter BIOS to install Linux?

    If you cannot enter BIOS, then your only choice is to reset CMOS

    1. Shut down your machine

    2. Disconnect the AC jack & remove the battery

    3. Press and hold the Power button for two full minutes to drain the charge

    4. Insert the battery and connect the AC jack

    5. Start your machine
