Ideapad 700-15ISK not show/enter BIOS

Hi. I have an Ideapad 700-15ISK which does not show the BIOS or Boot Menu after pressing Novo recovery button or Fn-F2. I'd like to install Ubuntu, but my Installation is not working. So there is no Windows anymore. My HDD encryted with unknown Pssword but I can not redo the installation because I can not boot from anywhere but Grub. From there I can only goto System Setup. It reboots but never enters BIOS. I tried with the recovery button. There was a Menu appearing with the items Normal Boot, Boot Menu, Recovery and something els.

 

Whatever I do, I can not enter BIOS. So what can I do?

Hi SLohn03 , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

How about if you just remove the harddrive (page 40) and then change the boot settings when you turn on the pc using the Novo button? That would give the BIOS set up menu .

 

Update us how it goes . 

 

 

Regards

Hi SLohn03 , 

 

Greetings.

 

Most upgrade on this model (harddrive / ram) would be opening the cover (review manual for steps) .

This would not void any warranty for as long as no damage done in the process.

Further discussion here for reference

 

You can call in tech support for confirmation and likewise recommendation for the initial issue.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards
