Thank so much for your help @Richard_linux,

 

can you take the last photo and shot the "Configuration" tab. Excuse me, I open the same link twice.

 

I'll try again using that settings and tell you if I can install Linux or I have to return the computer.

 

Regards.

Bad luck, after a few tests I still can not see the SSD.

I do not want to risk trying other methods that prevent me from returning the computer without problems.

In any case, thanks for the help.

Windows will still work if you flash the BIOS with the linux BIOS released by lenovo. The linux BIOS is needed becuase linux cannot see the SSD due to a special form of RAID being used. Windows cant even natively see the SSD unless it has the special lenovo drivers. Just keep that in mind if you ever reinstall windows. The BIOS adds the option to changed the SATA mode to AHCI (which Linux can see). After changing modes, windows wont be able to boot unless you change it back. A very easy way around this is to force windows (via command prompt) to only boot up in safe mode, so when you change to AHCI windows will be able to boot and load the AHCI drivers. You then remove the forced safe mode thingy and reboot into windows as normal. Now when you try installing linux it will be able to see the SSD.

When the BIOS is modified for Linux, how can I go back to the original version?

 

Is there also some BIOS update for Yoga 910?

The only way you can go back to the original BIOS is to manually change the storage controller mode to RAID (in the modified bios), install Windows and then download the un modified BIOS from Lenovo's website and apply it using Windows.

 

** if windows is installed when the BIOS is not set to RAID it won't load after you apply the un-modified BIOS **
