Change the booting sequence of the Lenovo G580 Windows 8 64 Bit

2014-07-15, 8:10 AM

Hi All,

 

  • I own the Lenovo G580 Laptop that has the Windows 8 64 bit.
  • It seems that it has a virus and I want to remove it with external anti-virus of NOD32.
  • Due to it I need to change the booting sequence that it would start from the disk-on-key instead of the hard disk.
  • Can someone tell how to change it and finally remove that virus?

 

Sincerely yours,

Shimon.

  1. When starting up quickly press F2.
  2. Go to the "Boot" category by using your arrow keys.
  3. Go down to your external drive that is connected.
  4. Press F6 until it is first on the Boot Priorities list.
  5. Exit and Save.
  6. Restart your computer and it should be now booting from your external harddrive.:smileyhappy:

Hi all,

 

First: Thanka a lot for your answer, but it seems that they changed the BIOS... :-(

Second: the BOOT Window looks like the following:

Boot Mode => Legacy Support

Boot Pririty => UEFI First

USB Boot => Enabled

 

EFI

 

Boot Device Priority

Internal HDD: HGST HTS54101... 680

SATA ODD: MAT**bleep**A DVD-Ram UJ8d1

 

I really appriciate the help for how to change the booting seq. to the USB device on the Lenovo G580 Device

Shimon.

if you mean how to enter safe mode then just keep pressing f8 after you push power button until you see a screen where you can choose start windows normaly, start windows safe mode, safe mode with networking.... and you choose safe mode and then from safe mode try to prevent and eliminate virus

Thanks,

 
However, how can I know that a file is a virus or not...
On the other hand, I have bought an anti-virus that ought to do it on the best way (they are specialized on).
But, I can't operate it because they (Lenovo...) changed the BIOS and due to it I've got a good Laptop that is the best of the best only for Viruses...
And the funny thing is that they (Lenovo...) don't try to help me regarding it... 

 

Shimon.

you can start safe mode with networking and then install antivirus software and scan computer from safe mode, safe mode with networking will allow you to conect to internet and download program. try that and see if it works, if not other recomendation is to pull out hard drive and plug it to some other pc as external hard drive and then on that second pc scan it with antivirus software. good luck

Hi men,

 

First: thanks a lot for your answer but following last answer, it is not a solution…

The only solution is to know how to change the booting sequence on that BIOS.

Moreover, search it with the best and known Anti-Virus that runs its own OS outside the Hard – Disk and runs the Anti- Virus.

I hope the Lenovo Company will finally will supply a suitable a Solution for that problem.

 

Shimon.

do you know how to unplug the hard drive from laptop? you have manual on lenovo site, just follow the video and take it out and now all you need is something like this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thin-2-5-USB-2-0-3-0-SATA-HDD-Hard-Drive-Disk-External-Enclosure-Storage-Case-/301160536911?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&var=&hash=item461e911b4f

and plug your hard drive in that case and then via usb plug it in some other pc and clean the virus.
