I'm having trouble assessing BIOS settings and Flashing BIOS (71cn51ww). I have an Ideapad Z580 that upgraded (accidently) to Win10. About two months later, the PC crashed. Eventually I returned to Win8 by using Novo button which provides a BIOS selection window and selecting option #4, Recovery. I want to assess option #2 BIOS settings to boot up from the DVD drive or USB when needed. Options #1,#2 and #3 all boot up to Win8. I tried to flash the BIOS but I get this message, "IHISI: Get support mode error in SMI! SMI return code: 0xEF". Is there anything I can do to unlock the BIOS to acess BIOS settings? Also, none of these buttons (F1, F2, Fn+F2, F8 or F12) lead to "BIOS settings" during startup by either holding the button down or rapid pressing the button. I'd like to have a dual boot option but I cannot even start thinking about that. Has anyone found a solution for this?
