BIOS and UEFI Tuning

It isn’t possible to start up your PC without a BIOS or UEFI chip, which is the crucial interface between your PC’s hardware devices and Windows itself. UEFI is the more modern standard and has been around for a few years now, replacing the older BIOS. However, many older systems still have BIOS chips built into the motherboard. Because of its graphical user interface, the UEFI is a lot easier to use than the BIOS and can be operated with the mouse.
