Updating bios from cd - consolidating an associate company

I figured it didn't copy the new bootmgr across, and I was right. BT folder it made and backed up the one in C:\ and replace it.Drive still will not boot up with the laptop, but in the desktop, it loads fine, and the Windows 10 upgrade continued at 32% as if nothing had happened.

I thought maybe the update messed with my other partitions so I re-installed Arch (which is my boot partition). In case there was something wrong with the partition table I deleted and recreated the partition table, and installed Arch. After this I thought the problem was most likely the BIOS. What is my next step, or have I damaged my computer irreparably?I went into setup and told it to restore default settings. I powered off, removed the power cord and battery, hit the power button, removed the hard drive, replaced the power cord and battery, powered on. I powered off, replaced the hard drive and powered on. Edit: Forgot to mention, I used gparted through a linux live usb to do partition editing, and forgot to explicitly state that only my BIOS has any trouble reading the hard drive Update: I borrowed a friend's hard drive to test in the computer just to make absolutely sure it wasn't the hard drive, and his hard drive booted. My system was dual booting Windows 10 Technical Preview and Arch Linux.So now I'm thinking the problem is with the hard drive. A few days ago there was an unfortunate occurrence that caused a problem which I have run out of ideas to attempt to solve. I was using Windows and it wanted to update but I was in the middle of something so I told it to wait.I went into setup and told it to restore default settings.

In the boot order I have sata set as the first option.It sounds to me like it might be a corrupt BCD or BOOTMGR. I normally use Paragon Win PE (boot recovery media builder is the program that makes it, it's not free however).

It'd make sense that with the power off and experimental version these could be messed with. In the boot order I have sata set as the first option.

The boot order also shows the names of devices it sees by each option; optical drive shows the name of my optical drive, network boot shows the ethernet port. In the boot order I have sata set as the first option.

Update: not sure what did it, but after Windows 10 completed the installing progress to 100% and booted up on my desktop, the laptop seemed to recognize the drive again, even without BIOS update.

Have you ever wanted to configure the Dell BIOS remotely? To start off with, you will want to read Part 1 first.

I am going to grab a hard drive enclosure and another drive with a working Windows 7 installation from work and try to boot to that, then update the BIOS, hopefully that will fix my laptop.
