Swamppifi Posted July 4, 2014 Share Posted July 4, 2014 Hi all I have just brought a new HP 14 notebook with Window 8.1..... Now it appears this new model has the new Protect BIOS, which prevents unauthorised booting by stick , or cd/dvd. I have got into the boot menu by pressing the ESC key every second while booting to get in. Now I have disabled the protected boot option, and it then ask for a 4 digit pin, this allows the changing of the order. But even with this disabled, if what your installing isn't approved in the bios ( kali ), it won't boot. My boot option is cd/dvd usb os boot manager So it should boot, but doesn't I have tried my bootable USB Kali which has worked in the pass, and a iso image on disc, which has also worked in the pass, but it won't recongise either... Anyone has a suggestion , I want gone of windows 8 as soon as possible... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
