I installed a new SSD and win10 on a V510 notebook. While updating some drivers I noticed an update for the BIOS marked as crucial, so I installed it. Soon after it started, It shut down, and when booted again I was stuck at the boot menu. The SSD appears, and so does the bootable USB and bootable cd. However, none of them works.
I tried the obvious solutions, I removed the bios battery and put it again. and wanted to change the boot mode from UEFI to legacy, but for some reason, it wasn't an option (the only option is UEFI).
I tried a bootable Ubuntu that I have, and it worked, I installed Ubuntu hoping to be able to do something from there, but I found no recent solutions. In the boot menu, it is still not possible to use any other device for boot. I need to install windows on this computer.
note: for some reason, ubuntu, and the SSD it is installed on, appear as two different options in the boot menu, maybe I missed something while installing it.
- Is there a solution to recover or update the bios knowing that I'm running Ubuntu (I'm a total beginner in Linux systems)?
- Is there any other solution to install windows again?
edit: I have another windows laptop that I can use to create bootable disks or recovery disks.
