Checking UEFI or BIOS on a computer is mostly required while the user chooses to install more operating system in a machine. Or say, when the user intends to dual boot their system. It’s mostly recommended to install both of the OS in the same booting mode, else the error may keep persisting. Therefore, this article highlights how to check UEFI or BIOS on both a Windows system as well as on a Linux machine.
Why modern computers uses UEFI over BIOS? Well, BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System, a firmware used for initialising hardware during the booting process and offers run time services to operating systems. This firmware usually come pre-installed on computer’s motherboard, and is the very first software that runs when a system is switched on.
Although, BIOS was being used since a long time on computer, later it’s replaced by UEFI in modern computers that eliminates various limitations of previously used firmware. UEFI stands for Unified Extensible Firmware Interface which is mostly used nowadays on new computers. This firmware has many benefits over its counterpart as it allows to use 2TB or larger storage devices, and has a CPU independent drivers and architecture.
Also, the UEFI is well known for its support for remote diagnostics and fixing, even when the system has no operating system installed.

The Windows Subsystem for Linux lets developers run a GNU/Linux environment — including most command-line tools, utilities, and applications — directly on Windows, unmodified, without the overhead of a traditional virtual machine or dualboot setup.
