Configure BIOS/UEFI

Turn on the computer

Turn on or restart your computer and watch for a message during the POST about a particular key, usually Del or a function key like F2 (e.g. Fujitsu Esprimo PC) that you'll need to press to access the BIOS/UEFI setup utility. It's possible, you won't see such message at all, but a vendor splash screen instead. Specifics vary from computer to computer. Consult your hardware manual.

Enter the BIOS/UEFI Setup Utility

After pressing the correct keyboard command, you'll enter the BIOS/UEFI Setup Utility.

Select the boot mode

In this tutorial, we do not use UEFI, but BIOS-mode. For e.g. a "Fujitsu Esprimo PC", select "Boot-> CSM Configuration".

Make sure "Launch CSM" is enabled and configure Legacy only for all options.

Secure boot

Navigate to "Security -> Secure boot".

Make sure "secure boot" is disabled.

Save/confirm your changes and exit

Exit the utility and save changes.


If there is an operating system on the harddisk, it may or may not boot. If there is no operating system on the the harddisk, the sytem tries to PXE boot. Anyway, shutdown the PC by pressing the "power button".
