    I used the computers for many years but when something goes wrong I am helpless.

    I had a problem with BIOS and I asked it at Yahoo Answers; the Member sirjester099 kindly answered it clearly and have solved it. Because of him/her I came to this site, with my thanks.

    Now, I am not able solve the problem with Windows7, I forgot it, and will try to post in in the right section.

    Thank you so much sirjester099

    Yes, me too.

    I wanted to know if deleting my EFI (or better ESP) partition would erase my BIOS to prevent any future boot. I read ten articles and still didn't understand what they were saying. I hate computers.

    Just be a normal user. Don't pretend to play technician/power user ever. You could blow your computer anytime :biggrin:

    computers are like cars. both need regular maintenance. if you drive a car, you must learn basic servicing and maintenance skills. computers too. :)

    you soon learn maintenance when your car engine seizes through lack of oil, or you demolish a 16 valve cylinder head because you did not change the timing belt at the specified time.

    Or just take it to the garage once every few months

    That's what computer techs and car mechanics get paid for ;)
