Lenovo Yoga C740 boot from USB

2019-11-19, 2:45 AM


So I have this issue where I can only see Grub rescue terminal and was wondering how I could get to the original bios and boot from usb instead of the new UI Lenovo Yoga bios. I can't seem to get into windows where you are allowed to do that.

Is there a way I can downgrade this new bios of the Yoga C740 to the old school one?

Hi ,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


To  boot from USB, you need to switch from UEFI boot mode to Legacy boot mode. Follow the steps here on how to boot from USB disk under Windows 8, Windows 10 - Idea/Lenovo laptops.


Let us know if this works.
