Is it UEFI by any chance?

Douglas L. Turnbull (douglt4) said : #2

UEFI is the major problem.
I wish to be able to edit or remove it from the BIOS.
Can you assist?

Is this a dual boot system (Windows and Ubuntu), or do you want to have Ubuntu as the only operating system?

Douglas L. Turnbull (douglt4) said : #4

I prefer to use only Ubuntu with wine program for some utilities that are unavailable with Ubuntu.
I have found Microsoft windows O/S's are designed to be easily burgled, take too long to load, very little utilities, very expensive/
poor value for money.


Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #5

In that case you should be able to turn off (U)EFI and/or secure boot in the BIOS (if that is what you want), but you may have to reinstall Ubuntu afterwards or do some additional tweaking.
See also or some other pages that you find by a web search for "Ubuntu turn Uefi off"

Douglas L. Turnbull (douglt4) said : #6

I would prefer to remove all the offending operations from the BIOS and instead utilise AI features to enhance overall system
But thanks for your suggestions.
