  1. Generally, there's a way to install the latest BIOS from the web in the UEFI; also, reset button? If that doesn't work use safe boot and see if that helps. It sounds like this is a fresh install, if it is, try reinstalling; if not, use remote desktop from your phone or another device to install drivers. You can also just leave it booted into Windows (without logging in) and see if windows auto-installs drivers (not sure if that works without being logged in, but it's worth a shot).
  2. Thank you! Totally didn't think of hardware compatibility, I so stuck on finding out how the firmware worked that didn't even cross my mind. Wow, I feel like an idiot.
  3. I have. All I've seen is "it's newer and it looks better" which I know isn't all. I've walked this person through my Asus UEFI and her legacy BIOS to show her the interface and feature/versatility differences, but she wants to know how they're different "Under the Hood".
  4. Without just saying "It's a new, better version of BIOS". They want to know what's actually different about how it works and what is "better" about it.
