Windows 7 without compability module at BIOS/ Not sure if compability module is running

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have a laptop which requires compability module to run Windows 7 ( Came with Windows 8.1, downgraded it to 7 ). I turned the compability module off for no reason and it works pretty fine.

Is there a way that I can check if the bios is running the module automatically?

EDIT: Compability module is working, it doesn't load safe mode without it.

It is possible that (one way or the other) you managed to make a "dual boot system" or actually more a "dual boot single system", tha can boot BOTH in BIOS and in UEFI mode. :unsure:

Files used are different, in BIOS:
\BOOTMGR
\Boot\BCD

vs.
\EFI\Microsoft\boot\bootmgfw.efi 
\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD

In the booted system  you should be able to see if you booted BIOS (please read as CSM) or UEFI, on 7 you will need to check SetupAct.log:
