Not able to boot

Hello guys,

Again, I'm not able to boot from BIOS or not able to boot with CD/DVD/USB, etc.
I asked this question before, but this time is a little different or very different.
I mean, this is a different machine, so I will describe the problem or the error.
When I turn on the system it doesn't matter if I press F1 or F9 I get the same,
Then if I want to see the boot menu option I must press the [ ESC ] but then
I end up in this section and no matter which of these option I select, nothing
happend and everything gets bypassed. this time I want the same thing, I need
to be able to change the settings so I can boot from a USB pen-drive or CD/DVD.
UEFIThen if I select any of those options I get this error:
ERROR

It shall appear the options that you need under "Legacy Boot Sources". Because they don't appear you need to check what is going wrong....

Examples:

Device not connected
Componentes not enabled in the Bios (Controller, USB, etc)
Devices not detected (Bad configuration with jumpers, settings, parameters, etc)
Unfunctional media (Bad disk, non bootable USB memory, etc)

Hi.

Below legacy boot sources is nothing? You cannot scroll down further?

You said above (a) you are not able to boot from BIOS and (b) this is a different machine. What do you mean "boot from BIOS"?  You are in the BIOS system above and BIOS itself is not bootable.

Will the hard drive start?  I know you want to boot from CD but will the hard drive start.

Since you are not getting to windows, my guess would either be a bad hard disk or the bios is not configured correctly.

Hi schnellsolutions, McKnife, thinkpads_user, joef123,
schnellsolutions, your answer makes a lot of sence.
"It shall appear the options that you need under "Legacy Boot Sources".
But there is nothing more under that option, I tried going up and down with
the arrow key on the keyboard, but thats it, there is nothing else, no more options,
I don't see the USB pen-drive.
"Because they don't appear you need to check what is going wrong...."
I don't think there is something wrong with this machine, is a new machine.
The problem here is with me, I'm trying to get to the BIOS but I don't see it.

McKnife:
"Below legacy boot sources is nothing? You cannot scroll down further?"
Thats correct McKnife, I don't see it there.

thinkpads_user:
Mybad, what I mean was, boot from the BIOS but from usb-pen-drive or CD/DVD.
And yes, the computer start and boot to windows and everything with no problem.
Is just me that I've been testing some stuff and wanted to boot froma pen-drive.
and CD/DVD's, like ubuntu, and other OS live CD/DVD's. but I can't since there is
no way to boot from there.

joef123:
No, there is nothing wrong with the HDD on this machine, everything start okay.

Could you please check in the manual what boot options you have in the BIOS to activate legacy boot options? What's the name of the system?

Samuel-AMCAuthor Commented:
I don't have the manual, this is the info: HP Omni 120 All in One PC Series
McKnife, this is whats going on, if try to go to the BIOS like we normally do,
is not letting me, I mean, it does let me, but it shows something else, like
system tests, like for the: RAM, HDD, Colors, CD/DVD, all these kinds of tests.
but I don't see the BIOS settings arround.

One more thing, once I get to this option, I have three options only:
UEFI
UEFI Boot Source
1.) Windows Boot Manager
2.) UEFI: IPv4 Realtek PCIe Family Controller
3.) UEFI: IPv6 Realtek PCIe Family Controller
Legacy Boot Source
I can move the arrow to these 5 options but I can only access three:
UEFI Boot Source and Legacy Boot Source. but if I hit [ENTER] nothing happend.
and if I hit "Windows Boot Manager" then windows start normally and don't let
no device to be booted. then if I pick option 2.) or 3.) I get this error:
ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.

In the section you are in, or in any other section of the BIOS, can you disable Secure Boot?

Or, if you try to disable Secure Boot, do you get the "Nothing Happened" issue?

No Thinkpads_User, thats what I've been trying to locate, but I don't see it.
I had this issue before, but with this HP PC desktop getting into the BIOS
looks totally different.

Ded, this is not like the TOSHIBA I was playing on the other day, this one
is more complicated, hold on, let me post some screenshots, this machine
required you to insert a code after your enable or disable things in the BIOS.
Is some kind of protection in case some one does it without knowing. but even
like that is not letting me boot from the device I selected, cuz I set it in the BIOS,
Cuz after I disable the secury boot in the BIOS, and then I hit F9 and ESC to get the
Startup Boot Menu, I still don't see the USB there, this BIOS is different, the startup
menu is different.

I got the HP link

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=bph07110#N2230


if you are not able to make changes in bios that mean you dont have access to make changes...bios is only available to you in read only format.

Make sure u know the setup password to make any changes

Samuel-AMCAuthor Commented:
Okay, this is where I was stuck with, without going no where:
Step 1Then I forgot that I have to hit F10 in order to get to the BIOS :-D
Step 2Then after getting into the BIOS the first thing that got into my mind was to go
directly to this option thinking that was gonna be easy just like with the Toshiba laptop.
Step 3Then moved to the secure boot configuration and got this warning message:
Step 4After receiving that warning finally I end up in the secure boot configuration,
But this is the tricky part which I tried like two or three times in order to get
the secure to work for me, cuz if you disable legacy, then the secury boot gets
disable and vice versa, then in order for this to work, legacy have to be enable.
Step 5Then after enabling legacy and leaving this option you get this other warning:
Step 6After this setting is done you get to see this new option in the BIOS boot order,
But we not done just yet:
Step 7Then we need to get out of here and save the changes we just made:
Step 8After saving the changes and rebooting the system, we get the Boot Mode Changes:
Step 9After this the system restart normally and we end up in the welcome screen and
the machine boots all the way to the desktop, then we have to restart the system
again, and after this last restart we have to press F9 and this time we get this :-)
Final StepMission completed ^_^ hope this help others. :-)
