I don't know too much about UEFI etc, but I've got a bit of a problem with my Inspiron 15 5547 hopefully someone can shed some light on.
I went through and updated all the drivers etc. in preparation for finally moving to Windows 10 on this thing. The last two things Dell suggested to update were the harddrive (ST1000LM014) firmware and BIOS, in that order. I'm pretty sure they both went OK since I'm able to boot into Windows and everything is working but my problem is at boot.
- The harddrive firmware update rebooted into some version of Linux, did some stuff, and then rebooted (through a weird menu) and back to Windows. Checked the firmware on the drive, updated, great!
- BIOS update did the same, into some other strange system, updating the BIOS, restart. F2 into the settings and see that the version has updated, great!
Reboot for the last time and end up in the weird menu (below) from 1. again... Unless I do something within a couple of seconds it boots into the default option ("Boot WindowsBootMgr from ESP") which seems to work OK.
I just don't understand why it's doing this now and if I need to do anything about it. In the UEFI boot settings (below) the first entry is the Seagate Firmware Tool which I think explains why rEFInd comes up. Should I move the Windows Boot Manager option up the order? Is that the same thing that boots when the default option is chosen from rEFInd?
Can anyone explain this stuff to me? Thanks!
