Re: Yoga 900-13ISK2 - BIOS update for setting RAID mode for missing hard drive on linux install

All,

 

A BIOS has been released to the web site for the Y900-13ISK2 which creates an AHCI SATA Controller Mode selection to allow for the installation of the Linux operating system.  This BIOS is NOT intended for use with machines running a Windows operating system.

 

Please ensure to read the README file for important notes and installation instructions.

Wow! Congratulations to Yoga 13ISK2 owners. When we can expect a similar update for 710s to be released?

To get windows working again you can run the automatic recovery.

I also read that if you boot into safe mode once the proper drivers will be set up and you would be good to go.

 

1. At the blue screen, click Advanced Options
2. Click Troubleshoot
3. Look for a Startup button, I forget its proper name
4. A list of boot options is displayed
5. Click Restart
6. Upon restarting you'll be taken to the boot options you previously saw in #4
7. Boot into Safe Mode only
8. Once you're back into your desktop through Safe Mode, Reboot your PC and everything should be back to normal

First of all, I am very happy for all the users, who didn't have a choice to return the device. Finally Lenovo has done, what it should have done months ago.

 

@Lenovo: This won't change anything. You already lost me as a customer and I will never ever buy anything from you again nor recommend any product to anyone.. Good bye

Thank you verry much for this update !
I can finally start using my laptop for my work and not jsut as a fancy paperweights !

I really love Lenovo products, but their support is lacking so much.

But great to see you are moving to the right direction !

That's fantastic news. I'll go buy a new Yoga 900 immediately. Too bad Lenovo wasn't clear on their intentions to fix it and I returned the old device while I could (had to forfeit almost $500 worh of store credit doing so). Still, fantastic news.

About time. Hopefully there won't be such issues in the future.
