I purchased a W700 2458-4su.
Vista 64bit (Business)
2XHDD X 160GB / 7200rpm
And i encoutered a lot of problem.
It's really difficult to boot from the optical drive. I tried to change the boot order an put the optical drive in first position but sometimes the computer boot from the cd/dvd or not. This depend if it wants or not !
I burned several cd of different brand but this don't change nothing.
After that, i update the firmware of the optical drive but this don't change the boot problem.
The laptop start WINDOWS or boot from the cd with the same disk.
I tried F12 but with the same result.
I decided to update the bios.
For this i donwloaded from LENOVO the iso image : 7zuj08uc, twice.
I burned 4 cd's different with internal and external cd burner.
When I can boot from the cd (not often) the computer hang. I can see the LENOVO splash screen and after i have a black screen with the cursor blinking at the upper left corner and the computer hang.
I really desapointed and i appreciate any help.
Sorry for my english but it's not my native language.
