I went to App Menu and in all the setups, selected the defaults and then saved and exit, but again it is showing the same initial screen. No change with the inputs...Any more suggestion?
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Do you have any usb devices or anything like that connected to it right now?
.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No not anymore, however while upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I installed it using USB where I had created the MEdia Setup for Windows installations.
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Ok check the boot priority/order in the BIOS then make sure the USB options are listed last. You want your internal HDD to be listed first.
.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No luck, same status, I am just working on Boot options, now HDD, CD, IPV4, IPV6 and then USB FDD, USB CD and USB HDD, but no luck, again I am being shown the same original screen that is not disappearing...
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately I am out of ideas so I will opt out and open this to all experts.

Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.

Hello! I am IT Miro and I will assist you on this question.

If you still require assistance with this issue, please do the following:
1. Completely turn off the laptop
2. Disconnect the power connector from the laptop as well as any other hardware that is connected (mouse, printer, external hard disk drive, etc)
3. Turn the laptop over and remove the laptop battery
4. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then release it
5. Now re-connect the battery and the power adapter and turn the laptop on. See if it will boot to Windows
If it is still the same, enter the Phoenix SecureCore Setup again and then go to the Exit tab and select Load Setup Settings. Confirm when asked and then do not exit the Setup, but select the "OS Optimized Defaults" option which is currently set to "Win8 64bit". See if you can select any other value there.
If yes, change it and then select Exit Saving Changes in the Exit tab and confirm. The computer will then restart.
Check if there are any changes.

Hi again, Pankaj!
I am glad to see the problem is now solved!
Sure, let me know what your friend suggested to you.
Regarding the charges: as far as I can see, you haven't signed up for any sort of monthly subscription, so there won't be any additional charges.

My friend advised me to go to boot tab and change boot mode to Legacy instead of UEFI and boot first as legacy. I did that and the input worked perfectly fine. Hope this helps you in someone's question. But would like to thank you for all your efforts Freddy n Miro. Regards ***** *****

OK, great. Thanks for sharing!
If you require any other assistance, let me know. I will do my best to help you.

It was unfortunate that despite not real help from you on my solution I was charged all 35USD. I had checked with you and Miro you had confirmed that only 5USD will be debited. This is unfair to me. Kindly refund USD30 to my card at the earliest.
