Legacy Boot in Yoga C940-14IIL

2021-02-23, 10:23 AM

Hello everyone,

 

Does anyone know whether Yoga C940-14IIL supports legacy boot?

If it supports, could you tell me how to change the boot mode from UEFI to legacy boot?

I couldn't find the option to change the boot mode in the Start Menu.

 

- BIOS Version: AUCN57WW

- EC Version: AUEC46WW

Solved! See the solution

Welcome to the Community Forums @grass051!

 

Nice to have you here!

 

You may press the Novo button hole that's found underneath the Yoga C940 and select BIOS menu/option afterwards to see if it still supports Legacy boot and if it can be changed to UEFI as well.

Make sure that the Yoga C940 is turned OFF before pressing it (Novo button). 

 

 

Thanks,

Hello @Adriel_lenovo,

 

Thank you for your response.

I have tried, but I couldn't see the item to switch to legacy boot.

How can we know what it supports?

Good day.

 

If the option is not in the UEFI/BIOS screens, then it is not available for your particular machine.

 

Regards.

Thanks for the update @grass051!

 

As stated in page 25 of the Yoga C940's User Guide, UEFI/BIOS is the first program that runs when a computer starts. Also, UEFI/BIOS initializes hardware components and loads the operating system and other programs.

Your computer may include a setup program (setup utility) with which you can change certain UEFI/BIOS settings.

 

However and to set your expectations, UEFI/Legacy may no longer be an option on some model variants.

In this case, the feature or setting is no longer available on your Yoga C940 laptop since it is usually found in the Boot tab of BIOS.

 

Thanks,

Hello @NateS, @Adriel_lenovo,

 

Thank you very much for your quick response.
I understood that the legacy boot is not available in Yoga C940-14IIL.
