I also have the exact problem =( i unboxed the device, booted, updated windows, then rebooted into the BIOS and then shutdown. After booting again my Surface boot screen is red.... I know its a bug because behind the word Surface the background is still black but everywhere else its red.... Cant find any information about this issue anywhere
i did not have the issue the 1st time i booted the device. But since my 2nd boot it keeps showing red, i have fully restored to manufacture settings/config and same results, seems like its a firmware/bios problem maybe??
