AW 15 R2 Cannot update BIOS without battery, tried rufus & /forceit - help please
I've spent hours troubleshooting this Alienware 15 R2 i have here. I bought the unit as-is with no SSDs or HDDs installed. I bought a Samsung 951 Pro 256gb M.2 NVME drive but windows will not let me use it as a boot drive and it is not detected in bios. Everything i read pointed to updating BIOS (which appears the BIOS is very outdated).
However this unit also has a bad battery. I ordered a new battery which ended up being dead too, so wont have the next replacement battery for over a week. I'd really like to get the OS set up on this in the mean time with just the AC adapter.
