  • Satellite R630-141 - cannot change the boot order

    I have a Toshiba R630-141 and I'm changing the boot order in the Bios, but the Bios does not allow me to choose my cd drive or a USB drive as the startup disk.

    I've updated the Bios today to the latest version, thinking that I need the latest version but still the Bios allows me to change the order.

    The problem is the screen flashes only when I'm in the form of change of boot order. When I select the upper and down arrows to select an option in the box just blinks and does not allow me to select any option.

    I tried the tab key, the number keys basically all of the keys that I on the keyboard, and still, I can't select usb or cd drive so I have to quit and restart.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Hi scarpentier,

    You can change the boot order in the BIOS and booting from another boot device? Go into the BIOS and change the boot order. Enter a startup disk (e. g. Toshiba recovery disc), save & exit the BIOS Setup. The computer will restart and should boot from the CD.

    Check this box!

  • How to change the boot order in Windows 7.

    I have a 64-bit operating system and I'm trying to remove windows 7 and install Vista. When I press F8, I take to a screen that does not allow me to change the boot order. If Windows 7 keeps on loading and the DVD are never read. How can I change the options, then the boot order is changed and the DVD are read and I can install Vista.

    Help please.


    Check with your system manufacturer support, their books online and ask in their forums (if any).

    Configuration/settings (BIOS/CMOS) often F2 as you start then look at the screen that will tell you how-
    the order of boot on CD/DVD drive everything first. Some systems use F12 or other keys to allow a time change
    in the boot order.

    I hope this helps.

  • Cannot change the boot sequence in the bios

    Hello world!

    I use vmware fusion 3.1.1 (282344) (in fact has happened since I started from 3.0). A home edition of Windows XP is installed in the bootcamp partition and is used as the guest operating system. When I start Windows XP, it always first try to boot from the network, which takes about 1 min (this can be ignored by hitting the ESC key however). Even if I enter the bios settings, the starting sequences is not editable, where "everything on this menu is not editable in user mode. If all items require changes, consult your supervisor system"is written. However, no password supervisor and of course, I'm not using the 'user '. Does anyone have any ideas on this?

    PS: a full Linux guest OS (installed in fusion and is wrapped up as a file) has no problem to change the boot sequence.

    Best regards


    All items of this menu cannot be changed in user mode. If all items require changes, consult your supervisor system

    Weird, I never heard of this message before. You get this when you start merging, not in native mode? I would have asked if someone had made changes to the BIOS settings until you got to the virtual machine, except that you said it's Boot Camp, so I think it's less likely.

    You can try to change the boot order in the Virtual Machine > settings > advanced > boot device.

  • Re: Satellite Pro A40 - cannot find the boot order in the BIOS

    Hi, we have a very old A40 Satellite Pro with a new hard drive.

    We are tryng to change the boot order in the BIOS to recognize the CD player ready for the windows disk. However, there seems to be no option to change the BIOS not boot order, and Yes, we tried the road from Toshiba which suggests press C during startup until and F12 to select the drive during boot, or what kind of work.

    Please can someone help?

    PS: The current message on the screen during startup is THAT BOOTMGR is missing

    Hi karl1966,

    Have you checked if the CD/DVD drive is recognized correctly in the BIOS?

    Maybe your drive is noisy and you should try another. I put t disc you used but try with Toshiba and Microsoft Windows disk recovery disk.

  • Re: Satellite A210-10 has, crashes when you change the boot order


    I have a serious problem with my computer Toshiba laptop, Windows Vista 32-bit, clocked at 1.8 Ghz, 2 GB RAM, AMD Turion 64 x 2
    There is only a single disk partitioned into two drives of 75 GB (C and E).

    The problem is that whenever I enter the start menu (for boot from CD), or if I change in the BIOS boot order and restart, the computer hangs (power cut off suddenly).
    So the only way to recover, is to connect the AC/DC adapter, wait 5 minutes and repeat. Then, everything lights up normally or launches of Windows system recovery, after what he will restart and work very well.

    It would be important to know that I partitioned the drive to have 30 GB for installing Win7 later. The problem is that I've never tried to change the boot order before repartitioning, so I don't know if it has something to do with the problem or if it was there before.

    Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    It seems that the issue related to the Bios. Have you tried to put update or reflash?

    Maybe this has happened before, but you don't check.

  • Satellite problem BIOS L750 - cannot change the boot sequence

    Hello reader/answering my questions.
    I am having trouble with my 750 ODN bios. This bios is an official update (3.6) from the center of support, and almost everything has been fine since (the plot thickens!). I decided one day I want to dual boot with linux, in particular Fedora (this is unrelated to this though).

    But, when I burned the disc and tried to direct (too test) boot the boot order has been on hard drive, first of all, I found! I rebooted and pressed f12 - did not work.
    I tried to delete and escape - neither worked. Then, I tried all the f keys - none of them worked.
    Whenever he took me to the Windows Start menu, and I explored it and I could not find anything.

    It is also important to mention that I'm under Win 7 SP1.
    I tried both PLoP and osloader (too boot from the dvd) - neither worked.
    I also do not remember what the button to start the bios was originally - Oops!

    Also toshiba with instructions logo never appears.
    I would really just change the order of boot however, the rest of the bios I don't need access too much right now.

    A separate issue is that Windows randomly decides he wants to check my hard drive, which takes forever, and he won't until he arrives to check it out. I think it may need medical help.

    But, no help, a qualified doctor or not, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance


    > I also don't remember what the button to start the bios was originally - Oops!

    Pressing F2 by turning on the device could help you access the BIOS.
    But you do not need to change the boot order in the BIOS. You can do it by pressing F12. This should be done immediately after you have turned on the laptop.
    Then the start menu appears and you can choose the right boot device.

    Does it function?

  • HP envy m6-K015dx: how to remove/reset password BIOS of HP envy m6-K015dx in order to change the boot order

    I'm trying to install a new copy of windows 10 but currently it does not show an option to boot from usb. There are only two options i.e. BONE Boot Manager, BOOT from the file of EFI. I need to go into BIOS to change the boot order, but it asks for administrator password.

    I don't remember set the BIOS password on my laptop, and yet I've tried some of the passwords mentioned on the forums but none of them worked. I can't remove CMOS battery, which is part of the solution, because it requires for me to disassemble the laptop.

    Please suggest me any solution that I have not been able to understand all other sources.

    Note: USB is made bootable and perectly to work on another pc.

  • How to change the boot order for the applications to the taskbar?

    When I moved to W7, software of my trackball wouldn't work and Kensington wouldn't fix, so I moved to a conventional mouse. I recently bought a better mouse and it has its own software. The software works very well, the problem is that it starts towards the end of the boot sequence. I would like to start earlier. The problem is that all the research I've done changing the order of departure come back with how to change the order of display in the taskbar.

    How can I change the boot order for the applications to the taskbar for the software for the mouse, boots earlier in the list?

    Windows does not have native to adjust the boot order, but there are third party solutions. See

  • VMware Workstation BIOS 9 - cannot change the boot sequence

    I have a Windows 2003 server that has almost zero space on the C drive, so I'm trying to start a utility disk so I can I repartition.

    HOWEVER... F12 not letting me NOT select a different boot device. If I go into the BIOS and go to the start menu, I see the hard disk and not the CD is at the top of the list and there is no way to change the boot order. Up, down and '+' and '-' keys don't do. The machine is a version that compatible with 6-7, but I shouldn't have to level 9 (I think, anyway).

    The boots of the virtual machine so fast but after that everything a 100 attempts I can't else primary hard drive to boot first.



    With VMware Workstation (or at least tab of the virtual machine) closed, add

    bios.bootDelay = "5000".

    to the virtual machine's .vmx file. This will add a 5 second delay for the startup process that will allow you to hit the "ESC" key to the start menu and to attach an ISO or CD image to the virtual machine. Make sure that the virtual CD-ROM presents itself as 'Connected' before proceeding with the selection of the boot device.


  • How to change the boot order, XPS 13 (9350)?

    New XPS 13 in front of me. I want to clean install the OS on this machine. In my XPS 15, (L502X), the BIOS has been designed so that even I was able to understand things, such as changing the boot order so that I can start off the coast a USB. But in the 13 I'm not finding it so intuitive. I'm sure it's me, but I had rather not fuss around and screw things, so I thought I would come here to ask: what are the steps to change the order of boot on this machine? Thank you.

    Recovery settings, update. Or let tapping F12 boot menu access, as soon as you restart the system. No need to start Media bios changes. Not a good idea to clean install windows on a new computer. This procedure is old technology and not necessary on new models of uefi and can cause irreparable damage. Windows and all the rest is a single image file not installed piecemeal, as years ago. You will screw things if you apply old procedures to a whole new operating system.
