(Solved)How to break the loop “Restart Surface to Modify security settings”

Handing on my new Surface Pro 4,I try to  install ubuntu on it. But I lost my “Security” menu in UEFI while I try to boot from a PE in my USB stick.Then I get stuck in the “Restart to Surface UEFI” loop with a message ‘The security settings on Surface cannot be modified at this time. A restart is required to make changes to the security settings’. The default security settings menu no longer appear no matter how many times I restart. I googled as many as I can, but I still cannot find a way to fix this.

Though I nearly give up this, but as a geek I have to know what’s the ball in it. It still lingered in my mind luring me. And most important I feel I lost my control on my computer, which is unacceptable!

I have to know!!! Or I can’t stop to ponder this.

Last night, an idea occured in my mind. I try to turn off the ‘Devices’ to trigger the settings to fix this. The result is amazing. I didn’t believe it worked. The pity is I still don’t know the reason why this happend.

Turn off the Devices:

The Security settings come back again:

Turn on all the Devices, you don’t expect a computer without camera, WIFI, and bluetooth…

Enjoy your full-controled computer again!

解决:安装linux时出现:No hard drives have been found

问题描述

安装linux时出现:

No hard drives have been found.

You probably need to manually choose device drives for the installation to succeed.

Would you like to select drives now?

原因分析

如果你是在本身机器上安装,需要把硬盘接口设置成IDE的;如果你是用虚拟机的话必须创建一个IDE硬盘。

解决方案

虚拟机

虚拟机默认创建的硬盘是SCSI的。

具体操作:

在虚拟机里把现在的scsi硬盘删除,然后再添加一个ide硬盘就可以了。

实体机

方案1

找你的 SATA 驱动,在安装时载入 SCSI 的地方载入 SATA 驱动。不过前提是你的 Linux 系统是特殊的一些版本,基本都是服务器专用版本,因为新版本的内核自带 SATA 驱动,所以一把厂家只提供特殊需要的一些系统版本,一般都只有 RHEL 4/5 系列,SUSE 企业版两个。另外还需要你的主板是特殊的主板,一般都是服务器专用主板(就是一个主板价格顶上一台家用机的那种)。

方案2

打开主板 SATA 的兼容模式(有的叫传统模式),但这样如果你的 Windows 系统是 SATA 状态下面安装的,它会变得不能使用,听说需要重装,但也不绝对。但这样 SATA 的性能优势全无,听说也不能打开 DMA 来加速硬盘的读写。但性能损失多少不知道。

具体操作

按F1(或F2、ESC)进入BIOS,Config–>SATA–>Compatibility[或IDE]
