So I installed the latest BIOS version earlier today. I could no longer access the BIOS with F2 or F12 so I went to the BIOS through Windows. I then changed UEFI to Legacy mode as I have Linux running on my second drive and needed to access at least F12.
Now it will only boot to my 2nd drive. I can not enter BIOS and it is essential for me to be able to access the BIOS. Any solutions?
So now I'm left without any access to the BIOS which I need as I have 2 drives and need the boot loader as well (F12).
The sheer problems caused by BIOS v1.3 should be an embarrassment to Dell.
Thanks for posting. Apologies that your system is not performing as expected.
Try removing the power and the battery, pressing the start button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and press F12 immediately after pressing the power button.
