Advance BIOS options for HP ENVY Curved All-in-One

HP ENVY Curved All-in-One - 34-b120qe CTO
Microsoft Windows 11

Hi,

I want to dual boot my Windows 11 system with Ubuntu 20.04 but Intel RST is in my way.  Ubuntu documentation asks me to disable Intel RST and switch to AHCI but, the BIOS settings available to me is limited (potentially locked by HP?).  Can you please advise on how to get to advanced BIOS settings? I have tried below options listed in the community, but nothing seems to work.

 

  1. Boot up your computer. When you see the startup logo screen, press CTRL+F10 and then CTRL+F11 to get into the BIOS. (It only works for some computer and you may need to try it for a few times until you get in).
  2. Boot up your computer and then press the F8, F9, F10 or Del key to get in to BIOS. Then quickly press the A key to show the Advanced settings.

Sorry, but apart from business notebooks and some high-end gaming PCs, accessing Advanced BIOS option on HP PCs is not possible.

Some OEMs lock out the advanced BIOS options to prevent customers from making changes to options that can destabilize or otherwise damage the PC -- and then send it back for repair under warranty claiming they did nothing to it.

I know only SOME of the advanced options are risky, but it's simpler to disable access to ALL advanced options than to allow/disallow on an individual option basis.

That's the course of action that HP has chosen. No one from here is going to provide you any means of getting around that.

Thanks, that's too bad.  Wish I had researched on this before buying.
