    My disk is in mbr with windows 7 reinstalled for some reason it still didnt boot, and f9 for me instead of reverting to factory defaults it actually boots into my windows 8.1 usb without needing to unplug the hdd, i switched to uefi on windows 10 and installing linux prevented me from booting to bios right away

    Understood. I meant F9 inside BIOS settings, which resets to default. But if your disk is MBR, then that wouldn't be the reason for your boot problem. Most likely the NVRAM corruption too then. Along with the inability to get into BIOS settings with F2, boot problems are a typical symptom.

    Your current ability to boot the external USB is precious, so be careful not to lose it while waiting for the battery to arrive.
