    Can't enable Boot Option in my laptop.


    Re: Samsung Laptop 365E5C-S05. Under Boot Option Priority, in the Setup Utility the Boot option #1 is Windows Boot Mangager (PO....1). It is disabled. How can I enable it? There is no box to check to enable it. Thank You.

    If you highlight that option then press Enter, does not an options dialog box appear?

    No, it says disabled and there is not other option within that area that shows any way to change it.
