I have a Samsung np700z5bh laptop with a Phoenix SecureCore Tiano bios that boots a UEFI system that runs Linux and Windows through GRUB (the OS stuff shouldn't affect this). After editing the bios at the bios menu, I try to save it (both by save and exit, and by just saving it). An error window pops up that says "Advance. Failed to save storage. SamsungSetup. Storage." It will not save. Boots fine most of the time. Date and time are correct. I am trying to update the bios. I have a .exe file from Samsung which is too large to attach, but I can link to it if need be. I can get the .rom file if need be. Although I'm scared that this new ype of bios might need more than just the .rom file. Their are lots of files in the .exe file. tried to use the .exe program from windows as samsung states, but it stalls. I did some research, and was told that I need to disable the "Execute Disable Bit" option in the bios. This is when I encounter the current error. Any advice will be helpful.
