BIOS Chooses Gio@5 Instead of Ion XE As Desk Type During Image


When imaging an Ion/Ion XE/Ion XE 20 and prompted to select a desk type, I choose 'I' for Ion but Gio@5 is selected instead.

Description/Explanation of Issue

On the keyboard supplied with this console, 'I' translates to '5' when number lock is activated. Since '5' is the option for Gio@5, you likely have number lock activated.


  1. Verify number lock is active (its associated LED will be illuminated).
  2. While holding down the 'FN' key, tap the 'F11' key.
  3. Choose 'I' again, you should not be directed to the page to choose the type of Ion.
