I don't understand why that would cause a reboot. Anyway, I didn't try that and now I've already shipped it back. I'm looking at maybe a Intel NUC i7. I'm going to use it to run node software.Did you try to get into bios and turn off tpm, trusted platform module,
sometimes you have to set the root password in the bios, some bios will accept just a single character password, then disable the tpm module, here is a video showing it having to be done to install Windows, not the best video but shows what I mean, I found it researching the laptop he uses.
