How To Disable Auto Restart In BIOS


Auto restart is an event where your computer reboots by itself after installing Windows updates. Note that this is not an issue that needs troubleshooting. Rather, it is by design. The reboot process ensures that the Windows update installation is complete. You cannot disable this feature on your BIOS menu. You can, however, use your Registry Editor and tweak certain settings to disable system auto restart. Note that you will need administrative rights to complete this task.

  • Click the Start menu. Type "regedit" (without the quotes) in the search box. Right-click "regedit.exe" and choose "Run as administrator."

  • Type administrator password or click "Continue" to proceed. This will launch Windows Registry Editor.

  • Navigate to the following registry key in the left pane:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Policies \Microsoft\Windows \WindowsUpdate\AU

  • Right-click "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers" and choose "Modify" from the context menu.

  • Change DWORD value to "1" and click "OK."

  • Close Windows Registry Editor. Reboot your computer to end the task.
