How to Start UEFI Directly from Windows 10

If you want to make a change to UEFI, such as changing startup priority, enabling or disabling Safe Boot, changing any other low level settings, etc. then you must enter UEFI and make the desired settings .


Depending on the motherboard manufacturer, you must press certain keys or a combination of keys on your keyboard when you start the computer to access the UEFI mode. Although your screen usually shows when you start a message with the buttons you need to press, the whole process may be quite confusing for new users. You can make life easier by entering UEFI mode directly from Windows by simply restarting them. This eliminates the need to press the relevant keys as fast as possible when starting up.

Booting Windows while importing into UEFI is not a difficult process. However, you can do so only if your motherboard supports it. If your motherboard does not support UEFI and is only with the old BIOS, you can not boot UEFI from Windows. Most modern motherboards are equipped with chip UEFI and support both UEFI and legacy BIOS.

If you do not know or are unsure whether your motherboard supports UEFI or not, you can easily verify it directly from Windows. See how.

Check if your system supports UEFI or the legacy BIOS
There are several ways to check if you are using UEFI or BIOS. One way is Windows system information. Windows displays all your system information in a single application called System Information.

1. Press Win+ R, and in the “Run” window that appears, type msinfo32 and press Enter. This n it will open the System Information app.

2. Select "System Summary" in the left pane. In the right pane you can see if you are using BIOS or UEFI next to "BIOS Mode". If you see UEFI, then your system is using UEFI. If you see the phrase "Legacy", then your system uses the BIOS.

Alternatively, you can also find it using disk management.

1. Open the "Start" menu and search for "Create and format hard disk partitions" (Check and format partitions) and open it. Don't worry, we're not going to partition or format your hard drive.

2. If you see a partition called “In good condition (EFI System Partition)”, or in English “Healthy (EFI System )”, then your system supports UEFI. If you do not have this partition, then your system is using the legacy BIOS.

Once you confirm your UEFI native platform support, proceed to the next steps of starting UEFI directly from Windows 10.

Boot into UEFI from the Windows 10 Settings app
To start UEFI from the "Settings" panel, we will use the "Advanced boot" options.

1. Open “Settings” from the Start menu or from the bottom right status bar. Go to “Update and -> Recovery” (Update and Security -> Recovery) and click the “Restart Now” button under the Advanced Start-up section.

2. On the next “Make a choice” screen go to “Troubleshoot – Reset your PC or Troubleshoot” and on the next screen go to “Advanced options”.

3. In this screen titled "Advanced Options" you will find various options with the probability of having more than 6 initial options and the screen low indicating "Show more recovery options". However you are looking for the option "UEFI Firmware Settings". Once you find it, click on it.

4. On the next screen, click Restart and you will be taken to the UEFI screen.

Boot into UEFI from Command Prompt
You can also restart Windows 10 by making an "automatic stop" in UEFI by running a single command from Command Prompt.

1. Open the Command Prompt with Administrator privileges.

2. Run the following command:

shutdown / r / fw

3. Windows will show a warning message indicating that the system will restart in less than one minute. Close the warning message and save all your work. The system will automatically reboot and will be put into UEFI mode. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
