I you plan to upgrade your machines from older versions of Windows, like Windows 7 or Windows 8, to Windows 10 you should consider converting from BIOS to UEFI as well. Windows 10 is design to use UEFI and are more stable and perform better on real UEFI hardware. If your hardware does not support UEFI it is too old and should be replaced.
Converting from BIOS to UEFI on normally means booting to bios setup and switching to UEFI manually. If you have a lot of machines and they are scattered over a large geographic area this can be time consuming and almost impossible. To make things easier we have created a tool BIOSConfig.exe so the process can be atomised and no manually steps necessary. This tool has been created so it can be used in many different ways, depending on prerequirements and demands. So how it is used differs from customer to customer and time to time.
The tool detects if hardware is set to UEFI or not and will only continue if it detects BIOS mode, but you can force it to always run. Next step in the process is to get manufacturer and model of the machine. With the manufacturer and model information the tool will search for files named as manufacturer and model and execute them. If model file is found and successfully executed the tool will continue without executing manufacture file. Finally the tool detects if a reboot is required for UEFI to be enabled.
The tool can be executed on your current running main operating system or in SOS environment as a pre command. For more information and the tool, please contact our support.
