BOOT sequence option not available in BIOS


Recommended Posts

cox

I have an old DELL precision workstation T3400

I recently wanted to change the boot sequence, but it isn't there or not shown any more.

It used to be there, but all of a sudden I can't see it.

I can see all my Drives properly, and I was lucky I can use it without any problems because I had set the first boot priority to my SSD.

Tried to change the battery, it didn't help.

I  unplugged all cables and replugged them, not solved.

Has anyone here any Idea how I can get this back?

My friend Google wasn't there to help either

Thank you

That sounds weird.

 

Can you get us a picture of the BIOS? With camera or phone?

 

Did you update your BIOS recently? Or if there is one?

 

Might need to reset your BIOS, as well.

I wished it was as simple as what you are saying, I wouldn't have asked here for help

Nevertheless, thank you for your "views"

I'm just curious, rather than going in to the BIOS what happens if you select F12 to select the boot device manually? Can you see the HDD, USB, Network etc.?

YES, one can get these options

Have you tried removing the CMOS battery to try resetting the BIOS?

That is very trivial, everyone knows this, of course yes

It may be trivial, but you didn't mention that you had done it. ;)

 

EDIT: @Mindovermasterasked about updating the BIOS. Is there an update available?

I have left the PC as it is, I haven't been able to resolve the problem to the present

So all of our suggestions do not help you?

You'd be surprised at the amount of times, even something as simple as a CMOS reset, is often overlooked. We cannot assume the level of skill for every forum user, hence why you often are given some of the most common troubleshooting tips.
