Removing Windows 8 (HP 250)
So the time has finally come where I have laptops that I need to remove Windows 8 from. Specifically HP 250 laptops, I spent the whole of yesterday afternoon reading guide after guide and looking at various youtube clips but I just can't get it done. Even when restarting from Windows to change UEFI firmware settings I still only have to option to enter what appears to be the standard BIOS.
From here I have:
- Cleared all secure boot keys.
- Disabled Secure Boot.
- Enabled Legacy Support.
Under this there are then two boot orders UEFI and Legacy, no matter what I try I can't disable the UEFI boot from taking priority. Even selecting the boot device list on startup only presents the UEFI list, this obviously reads my Windows 7 media but refuses to install (as I would expect booting from UEFI). I'm just about to see if there are any BIOS updates from HP but if not I am truly stuck (or missing something obvious!).
