BIOS Auto-Recovery of Galaxy Book2 Business laptops
Last updated on 2022-03-08
What is BIOS Auto-Recovery and Auto-Backup?
The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) in a computer is the firmware, installed on the computer’s main board, that initializes the computer during the start-up process. When you switch on a computer, the BIOS always runs first, before the operating system starts.
The BIOS can be corrupted by malicious attacks, or even during normal usage; for example, if a power outage happens during a BIOS update.
A Samsung Galaxy Book device that supports BIOS Auto-Recovery automatically detects any BIOS corruption, and attempts to restore the BIOS from an uncorrupted, secure backup, which is stored in the Secure Embedded Processor (SecEP).
When you update the BIOS from Samsung Update or Windows Update, the BIOS Auto-Backup process also updates the secure backup in the SecEP.
If you see this message after restarting the computer, it means that your machine has detected a corruption in the BIOS, and is recovering the BIOS from the secure backup:
It takes about 4 minutes to recover the BIOS from the secure backup. Do not switch off the machine or remove the battery or AC power during the Auto-Recovery process.
If you see this indicator after restarting the computer, it means that the BIOS has been updated from Samsung Update or Windows Update, and the BIOS is being backed up to the SecEP:
It takes about 4 minutes to back up the BIOS to the SecEP. Do not switch off the machine or remove the battery or AC power during the Auto-Backup process.
