z480 can not enter bios

hello everyone.

i bought z480 and can not enter bios by pressing f2.

The chronology is like this.

Bought z480, everything is fine.

Trying install windows 7 with gpt partition hdd and uefi enabled.

Not satisfied and format again with mbr partition

try to enter bios to disable uefi by pressing f2 but can not enter bios.



So f2 pressed but no please wait text displayed. pressing f12 went into boot manager.

Checking f2 key and found the f2 key is just fine.

Re: z480 can not enter bios

fn+f2 didn't work either.


It seems that my bios got bad /corrupted somehow.


I tried searchin on the internet and it seems a lot had the same problem, lenovo laptop and other brands too. Some says updating bios correct the problem.


Waiting for z480 to have an update of bios. dont know when, but i hope not to long.

Re: z480 can not enter bios

Is the OS even booting? If yes try a BIOS update to reset Bios settings.
