UEFI BIOS Screen Recording Setup

I got a new Dell Inspiron 7347 and I upgraded my XPS 8300 to have 4 USB 3.0 ports. I also purchased a StarTech USB 3.0 HD Video Capture Device. This has allowed me to record the Dell UEFI BIOS:


Download Windows 8.1 .iso

Testing with a UEFI BIOS with SecureBoot enabled and with the Dell UEFI BIOS SLP key.

Creation of Recovery Media with Dell Backup and Recovery:

Both these videos are very similar. They instruct in upgrading to the latest version of Dell Backup and Recovery, making the recovery media and checking that it boots in a UEFI BIOS with Secure Boot enabled. They also play around a bit in Disk Management to help users understand whats going on.

This is a test from a 500 GB SHDD to a 250 GB SSD and worked incredibly well. A similar test with a Factory USB Flash Drive worked just as well. The process was identical so I won’t make a second video on that. I may however make one restoring from the factory internal partition which I tested with the SSD.

  1. It’s good to see folks like philipip dedicating their time, as well as putting their reputation on the line (having being banned from forums) to provide us with truthful, working solutions. No, not all are perfect, but neither is that of every person in this line of work & few wants to get into.

    Why doesn’t more want to get into this line of work? The answer is obvious, Microsoft MVP’s are all over these forums & doesn’t endorse much of the comments by these folks. They do all they can to shoot these issues down, in the end, free speech prevails.

    I hope that philipip & those like him continue to be a force in the market for years to come. Looking at the workstation desk, obviously it’s not for the money.

    Keep up the great work!


  2. Hi Philip,
    Thanks for the great information and videos… so much information to absorb!
    I have a inherited Dell 2710 and wish to upgrade the msata cache drive to 256/500 and install windows on the new drive. Are there any specific steps for this procedure that require special attention? I have already got the ISO and the usb boot disk ready . After I fit the drive is there any settings required in Bios to make sure that the new drive will be recognized first .
    Thanks for your efforts they are greatly appreciated
