Hi coucoune1633 , 

 

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Community. 

 

To enter the BIOS , turn off the pc and use the Novo key (item1 page12) to power on .

Novo menu would appear offering BIOS set up (for changing boot options etc. )

System recovery option from one key recovery initial back up would delete everything and restore to factory defaults.

 

About booting to safe mode:

Since starting with Windows 8 and up , usual F8 on boot is deeply embedded on the recovery making it hard to access. 

 

 

If Windows cannot boot to a viable stage for to access advance recovery menu :

 

1. Shift + F8 works on some system , do it at same time you see the lenovo splash screen repeatedly.

 

2. Forcing recovery mode on windows 8 : turn on then suddenly turn off pressing the power button , then on and off again for 2-3 attempts , Turn on and see if recovery screen would show up for the advance option.

 

3. Some system have F11 / F12 on BIOS to launch the recovery / boot option 

 

4. Using a bootable media ( USB rescue image often useful for repair / back up  , using Windows media creation tool  ) 

     If Windows 8/10 does not start: (using the command line) 

    How to boot into Safe Mode from the Windows 8/10 installation media or recovery USB flash drive.

 

Take time to review the steps and highlighted articles.

Update us what works best for you. 

 

Regards

Hi coucoune1633 , 

 

Would you have the Machine number (from the label or check it from here using your SN, just keep your SN confidential  )  instead to get to the specific machine details .

 

Usually a novo key is a small key next to the power  with an inverted U arrow like a refresh icon in most yoga 11 in front. 

 

Regards

Re: Enter Bios Lenovo Ideapad YOGA 11

Hi coucoune1633 , 

 

Greetings.

 

With the machine number 59353926  YOGA11 T30 64G 2G WRT .  

Novo key is not available. We have a non booting Windows RT here.  

Windows fast boot would block access to BIOS on Windows RT.

 

Wish you had a recovery media created before this thing happened. 

 

Most Ideapad hotkey FN + F2 for BIOS and FN + F12 for boot menu that may not work if disabled from the BIOS. 

 

Steps that you can try :

 

1. At boot try Volume Up + Windows key from bottom of the screen (not on the keyboard) to access UEFI-based USB boot as tried here on this discussion.  

 

2. You can also force recovery mode by turning on and off in two tries . Immediately removing power to force Windows RT to crash then on and again crash it by turning off (by default Windows recovery on RT would show up if it failed to boot after two consecutive attempt.

 

3. Using recovery media to boot, ( if you don't have it , you may check on tech support if you can order Windows RT recovery USB drive or if it is available ) . Check also on this discussion with a fellow member uploading  here based on this thread

 

4. Call in tech support to send the machine for a depot reimaging and repair. 

 

This 4 options are the best we can try for a Win RT preinstalled version .

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

Hi coucoune1633 , 

 

 

If you have exhausted step 2 , check if you can boot on a USB device (assuming that USB boot hotkey is enabled) .

Proceed to Step 3  (alternate boot USB image to test using rescue image ).

 

Since this is a Win RT if step 3 fails , set expectation for probable Step 4 (sending it for depot repair). 

 

Regards
