    Default "BlInitializeLibrary Failed 0xc0000017" When Exiting Classic Mode Without Saving

    I think I've identified a BIOS bug. Can someone try and replicate the following (preferably on an SOC Force):


    1) Enter BIOS
    2) Switch to Classic Mode
    3) Exit without saving anything


    There seems to be a bug that causes a "BlInitializeLibrary Failed 0xc0000017" error screen when this sequence is followed. It's fine if you save and exit or exit from the modern UEFI interface.

    I'm just trying to make sure it's replicable by others before I try to report it as a bug to Gigabyte.

    No problem on my soc force board. But how often do I enter the bios and not make changes? I'm in there every day!

    I noticed something relevant to this while investigating another unrelated phenomenon. I read something about clearing the CMOS and/or removing the battery to clear RTC causing the Windows Boot Manager to be lost, and I wanted to verify this.

    So I did a plain CMOS clear, and now when I exit without saving from classic mode, instead of the "BlInitializeLibrary Failed..." error I get the "Windows is Loading Files" (with progress bar) come up twice, followed by the "Reboot and select proper device..." screen. As always, if I reboot it boots fine, and it still only happens when I exit without saving from Classic Mode.
