Asus transformer book t100ta bios


I am helping out a frifinish. They have an Asus T100TA-B1-GR tablet / lappeak. it was running windows 8 they think.

You watching: Asus transformer book t100ta bios

The machine wouldn"t boot up. They sassist they updated the bios. Now the home windows tile mirrors and also a spinning wheel of dots.

Never gets past that. I tried booting off usb disks. Went right into bios / Eufi - tufinish off secure boot, turned off windows manager as a boot option (it sees the USB).

But still tries booting off inner windows.

I fugured I"d take the hard drive out and get the data for him.

But the hard drive isn"t right here under the keyboard:

Is it behind the tablet? Or an incorporated SSD somewhere?

Bios doesn"t even tell me the dimension of the drive.

Any thoughts? 

we simply want to acquire the information off the drive. Can"t boot from USB through lots of various UEFI & bios energy / linux disks.

As I understand it on these tablets the memory is 32 GB of eMMC soldered in and so it is not upgradeable or simple to remove and also get data off. It is proclaimed that on other forums the key-board has actually a provision for storage also and also some usage that. I think that human being need to be very conscious that they need backups for any type of data, especially if they have actually soldered in memory. 

32 GB of memory is not "fit for purpose" to run Windows and will jam up with updays. They have to never before have been put on the market via such an insufficient amount of storage.

I guess that as soon as last provided Windows went into a sleep/hibercountry mode so that it can startup much faster and also as soon as in that mode it inhibits booting of a USB. You will need to perform even more research study regarding exactly how to bypass this.

THANKS! i CAN acquire into the bios. that"s not a problem. (push / organize the F2 essential THEN press / host the power switch till it boots right into the bios).

See more: How Do I Change The Default Font Of Sticky Note Font On Your Sticky Notes

It;s acquiring it to boot through a maker in the usb 3 port. I followed videos to boot into bios, turn off secure boot, and so on then boot, push f2, go right into conserve / departure and select boot override of the thumb drive (which it DOES see). screen flashes a 2nd then back to that page.

Doesn"t like / can"t boot off USB ? I"ve tried at leastern 1/2 doz tools that DO boot off various other computer systems no trouble. 

Arg!

Oh, I had actually youtube open and it autoplayed another video. talked of holding esc and turning on machine. that got me to a boot food selection - home windows boot manager / uefi: merchant coproductcode / enter setup. 

Choose windows boot manager and also you gain the windows 4 tiles & spinning circle

select uefi and it bweb links and also goes right into bios

enter setup goes right into bios.

And you might try a Puppy Linux to look at the records. Use the 32 little UEFI variation. And make certain the boot flag is collection on the USB stick. http://slacko.eezy.xyz/downpack.php

THANKS! That link to the web page on just how to boot to linux did the trick.

I obtained the 13.4 ubuntu to boot from USB. But it doesn"t have actually a gui? And I really just understand home windows.

So I took a mint usb I had actually and dropped the bootia32.efi onto it. I was able to boot off it and also acquire to a GUI.

But clicking on things doesn"t carry out anypoint. the cursor moves and also the symbol highlights when I click it. But file traveler doesnt open. Haven"t waited 2 hours for it to open maybe?

I;ll google, but you know some regulates to mount the internal drive and also copy everything to it? an additional problem is that there"s just 1 USB port. I need the mint to be in tbelow to boot. yet i need to watch if I have the right to plug in a USB hub to have an external hard drive?

Or once you boot from USB, the entire OS is in RAM? Or make puppy on a big USB so I have the right to copy to the puppy drive?

and also even graphically, what"s best way to copy whatever from 1 drive to another? I prefer past compare. I guess I"ll try puppy and view if it runs faster?

Right, with just one USB port you need a USB hub to execute anypoint valuable. They are incredibly cheap and typically allow one USB port to business 3 or 4 other gadgets via the hardware ports it has. With a tablet I think you may need a USB keyboard and also mouse to acquire it all working without a little bit of effort and also so with the Linux on a USB stick and also the extra storage for any kind of reextended files you deserve to check out that 4 ports is good. I have actually both externally powered hubs and also ones that regulate to work-related through the grasp USB power.

I am surprised that you did not get a GUI through Ubuntu but you might through the terminal command "startx" without the quotation marks.

Puppy will fill right into RAM and also run from tbelow. Hopetotally it will certainly get to the Window and you will certainly see the icons of the plugged in storage devices and also clicking on them will mount and also open up them. Just drag any kind of wanted papers to the storage.

It might be that Windows is jammed by the limited tablet storage and so as soon as you have actually dragged whatever you require off and also you are happy through them, delete the ones on the tablet. You mat have to run "ntfsfix" to kind out Windows and it may boot aacquire.
