    accidentally deleted my fast boot options


    Hello there, I axidently deleted my Fast Boot boot options and when I enable it my laptop restarts and shows the BIOS, without booting into my system(s). However, when I enable CSM boot it gives me option of booting into my systems. I want to restore my Fast Boot options so my laptop boots up faster and basically because my laptop is made for Fast Boot. I know I was noob I deleted the options by mistake but please please help me! I have fewer screenshots and YES! I have tried to restore everything to default and only for the fast boot section but no boot options for Fast Boot were restored!

    Here's the SCREENSHOTS! - BIOS?? UIEF??? - Imgur

    You didn't delete your fast boot option, you deleted the BIOS boot option for your installed OS. The BIOS Fast Boot option has nothing to do with it. You need to recreate the original BIOS entry. Is there an "Add Boot Option" menu?

    How can I restore my "original BIOS" entries? Any programmes or steps?

    Do you have a UEFI shell? If you don't know what that is, then don't worry about it.


    Turn off the CSM if you weren't using it before, it will only cause confusion and headaches for you.

    I would reset your BIOS (all settings) to defaults and reboot, and cross your fingers.

    OK, I missed seeing the and in "and only for the fast boot section" and thought you only reset some of the options. I don't know what to tell you, my laptops BIOS has an "Add Boot Option" option. Why were you messing around in the BIOS in the first place?

    I checked my BIOS and it had a option of Launch EFI Shell then puts me into this Click image for larger version, but I want this instead Click image for larger version so i can click on UEFI Firmware Settings and probably restore my fast boot options.

    The UEFI Firmware option just boots you into the BIOS setup menu on the next boot. That's all it does on my Laptop that has a UEFI BIOS. And it's not your Fast Boot option that is missing by the way. Enabling or Disabling the BIOS Fast Boot option has nothing to do with the Bios "Boot Option" shown below it on that Menu. The BIOS Fast Boot option just does a faster POST when enabled. Less checks are done during boot up. Did you try the Trouble Shoot option shown in your first screen shot.
