UEFI Booting/ Enabling BIOS Features

2012-12-26, 7:16 AM

I have a Lenovo G475 laptop and I would like to know how to enable the (U)EFI mode in the BIOS menu and is it possible to access advanced features?
I want to UEFI boot an operating system.

BIOS Version: 41CN24WW(V2.00)
EC Version:   41EC24WW(V2.00)

Thank you.

hi lks1981,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community.

The Lenovo G475 only have the old Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) and doesn't have a UEFI as an additional option. Until such time Lenovo allows flashing of the BIOS to convert it to UEFI, you can't yet enable this option.

If you want to transform the BIOS to UEFI (to allow booting from HDD's larger than 2TB and up to 128 partitions or mix MBR with GPT type partitions) , you can try to use Developer's UEFI Environment (DUET), you can find more info here - http://tinyurl.com/d9owxqr

Hope this helps.
