When I power on the computer, are the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi devices/services running and available?

 

In cases when I load the BIOS Setup, are the Bluetooth and WiFi devices/services running and available?

 

When I power on the computer and access the System Recovery menu, are the Bluetooth and WiFi devices/services running and available?

 

When I write "devices/services running and available" I mean that is for example that I had an external Bluetooth device though which I could communicate with the computer's Bluetooth service I could do so while the screen shows the boot up menu, and/or the BIOS Setup, and or the System Recovery.

 

It would be great if you could describe when and how these services are loaded.

 

Thank you

 

PS: on 20210803 I logged in to the forum and I see this post and a duplicate. I am wondering why this happened?

These services use Windows drivers, so they are loaded during Windows bootup.

I think I am able to disable the Network Adapters from the BIOS Setup, but I am wondering is there is a way to disable bluetooth before loading the OS?

 

Do you know if the Bluetooth is working when in WinRE environment?

 

Thank you

Good question -- and my answer would have been yes -- but today, I had need to reboot a laptop into WinPE to do some file restores and the bluetooth mouse was not seen at all!  So, it looks like BT does not get loaded in the WinPE environment.  I don't know about WinRE, but my guess would be the same.
