Boot Problems

HP Recommended
Pavillion 13x360 convertable
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I inadvertently modified the - I thought - boot sector of my disk.

Actually it appears I modified my UEFI whatever - boot sector, boot file, or whatever microsoft has changed in the boot process.

 

Short of wiping the disk and reinstalling what are my options to correct this.

I'm a unix and linux administrator and am used to mdifiying boot FILES - but I can't find anything to change, correct, or whatever...

 

Any suggestions whold be helpful

 

Thanks

Larry

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

UEFI presents a very different booting environment than the old BIOS system, so experience with the latter does not help with the former, at all.

 

Here is some information about Linux with UEFI -- which will help you understand the new UEFI boot process:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI

Good Luck

Interesting .....

I guess if there's a better way to do something

Microsoft will steal it ....

 

{ Noticed the info is in the UBUNTU LINUX  area }

 

I'll have to check it out..

I've set up HP Unix development systems that run 2 or 3 different versions of HPUX and never had any of them

give me the grief this Win10 has.  ( Maybe I'm getting too oold to understand it ?????    ----NAH }

 

Thanx again
