Hello everyone,

I buy a Yoga 2 13 about 1 year ago,and try to install Windows7 on this notebook,but i set Bios password for aditional settings.

But now after 1 year i need to reinstall OS and i can't do this, i forgot BIOS Password,in boot menu (F12) i don't see Installation USB Flash..

 

Question is,how to reset BIOS password on this notebook?

Hi icsadam,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

As per hardware manual about password (page 24): 

"  neither Lenovo nor Lenovo authorized service technicians provide any services to reset"

 

Similar to this discussion, since this is a security feature then you need to remember it and try because there is no master password/ reset for this. Others end up replacing the motherboard.

 

Alternatively, I would suggest that you remove the harddrive and slave it on another machine to install Windows 7. It can be worth try as an option.

 

Regards
