Z50 - Protect my PC

2015-12-28, 12:10 PM
 
Hello,
First, I apologize for my rough syntax,
but I'm French and I do not control very
well the language of Shakespeare.
I own a Z50 , and I would protect the theft tale. I created an
administrator and user password for the bios, but apparently
this does not prevent reinstallation of the system via OneKey Recovery.
Would there some way (eg password) to prevent reinstallation of the system?
Thank you.

Mod's Edit: System model added to front of Subject line to improve visibility / clarity.

Hi Dwiri,

 


Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

What you need is Intel Anti-Theft Technology

 

The Z50 do not have this feature.

Lenovo Notebooks with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology are ThinkPad T , X and W series

Its is directly on the Intel processor itself that safeguards a pc against theft.

 

Other than the BIOS administrator password and harddrive password, you may want to check on other options with these article


Hope this helped you answer your query.

 


Regards,

If what you have stated is true then a new bios update is in order to correct the bug. Check the site for a new bios update.

Thank you for your replies.
It is a pity that we can not prevent reinstalling windows via OneKey.
The old pc were simpler to protect. I will look into the tracks that
you have given me, hoping to find the solution.

The only simple solution I found is to have the active power-on password.
I content myself. Thank you again for your help. See you soon.
