Fix the rotation lock on Elitebook 1030 G2 running Windows 10 1903

I was having a terrible time trying to get the auto-rotate option working on my Elitebook 1030 G2. I tried all of the options found via a web search and nothing worked (driver updates, registry modifications, etc.).

Until I modified an unrelated function in the BIOS. This fixed my rotation lock issue:

  1. Enter the bios (F10 during computer POST or SHIFT-RESTART while in Windows and choose startup options).
  2. Navigate to “Advanced” – “Intel Remote Management Options”
  3. Activate/Enable “Active Management (AMT)”
  4. Save BIOS settings and reboot.

Log back into Windows and test your auto-rotation.
