it's not possible, when sd card is inserted before turning on, it also block bios access. I tried f2 and recover key, none worked. Only when I remove sd card and restart, the machine work normal. The bios boot setting is ueif

Wow, I am glad I found this thread!! I have been meaning to RMA my laptop but can't find the time since it means I will be with no computer!!
I have been fighting this LENOVO screen hang at boot for months now, I took the SD card out and it booted right up.... pushed it back in, and it hung on the LENOVO Splash screen while booting... popped it out, and it booted again just fine!!
I still need to send it in to be fixed I suppose but at least the laptop is usable again
+1 this thread!

4 later, and these laptops still have this problem. At seemingly random times, mine gets stuck on the splash screen and it can take hours to finally get it working. I just saw this post about the SD card, removed the SD card in my laptop, and bam, it started right up.
