Accessing bios on Yoga 2 Pro

2015-02-02, 5:44 AM

I have a yoga 2 pro with windows 8.1.  I would like to access the bios so I can boot to a usb flash drive.  I see a flicker during startup.  Is that the bios screen.  If so, how do I get it to stop so necessary modifications can be made?

Shutdown Windows on your machine.

Start the Yoga by pressing the round OKR button (next to the power button) for 3 seconds.

If you're going to boot anything other than the main OS it's a good idea to do a full shutdown from Windows first.  Log in and hold down SHIFT when clicking the shutdown icon.

 

Win 8.x does something more like hibernation when shutting down.  It's not a good idea to boot anything else in that state.  SHIFT+shutdown (or one of the advanced shutdown/restart options) makes sure the OS is fully shut down.
