Cannot restore system defaults

  • After moving a drive from one server to another in Windows, you see an error message that certain settings cannot be found.

  • After replacing a motherboard, you lose your configuration settings, such as Secure Boot.


Moving drives and replacing system hardware can disrupt pointers to previously configured settings.

  1. Use the Restore Default System Settings option, or the Restore Default Manufacturing Settings option to restore your settings.
  2. Retry the procedure.
