Cant boot from USB (Lenovo Yoga 720 12ikb)

2019-05-14, 5:12 AM

As the title says i cant boot into usb. 


Via novo button i dont have the option and doing it from windows (shift + restart) yields in a message that i cant boot from USB and the only viable option is the bootloader. 


The Bios is the newest one available on the lenovo homepage. But its hardly a bios. 


Theres nothing i can do. 


Cant change from ahci to raid (not that i wanted too) , cant change from uefi to legacy or both etc. 


The only thing i can do (and have tried) is disable secure settings and fast boot. 


Never seen such a restricted bios. 


Does anyone have an idea how i can get it to work? Maybe a real bios with options or special drivers or settings ive to change? 


Otherwise ill have to return this machine.

Hi Joe23rep!


Welcome to the community,


Are you trying to install Windows 10 using the Microsoft USB creation tool?


If so, try to disable secure boot and enable USB boot on BIOS then press F12 and see how it works.
