So I’m having trouble with my BIOS and/or SSD. I put a ticket in to support but thought I’d throw it out to the community to see if anyone knows what could be wrong:
After updating to BIOS 3.07, I get the “Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed” message on boot-up (image 1, below). I have Debian Linux installed on an SSD, which is a Western Digital SN750.
I installed the BIOS update using the UEFI package on a USB device. I can still boot off of USB, but the SSD specifically will not be recognised as bootable. The BIOS still sees the drive, however (image 2, below).
I have tried resetting the BIOS settings to “Optimised Default”, as well as taking out the drive and powering on and putting it back in.
Before I performed the BIOS update, I changed the boot priority settings to “First” and un-ticked the SSD in the boot device list. I don’t know if this is the cause of the problem. It doesn’t appear to be selectable after the update, regardless.
I will also mention I have tried with Quick Boot on/off and USB boot on/off. I’ve been using this SSD for work for a month so it’s not the biggest problem if I have to format but I would obviously very much prefer if that was kept as a last resort.
@Paulie420 I extracted the zip contents to a FAT32 USB stick, yes. I did not remove my SSD. I assume if you did remove the SSD then this problem wouldn’t occur, but that’s not to say there wouldn’t be any problem.
Hi, sorry to reopen this thread again.
I got my framework today snd plopped in the firecuda 530 1 tb drive. I installed MX Linux 21 from USB, it seemed fine at first. The only hook was, that the Installation took very long while creating the partition table.
after a reboot, it was not possible to boot from the SSD, it was possible to boot from the USB Stick.
I reinstalled the grub in the ESP partition and tried grub repair. No luck.
Reinstalled mx Linux now it boots. Things left to do : get Bluetooth working
