How do I reset my BIOS?

2021-07-23, 22:50 PM

I recently had a drive problem with my M93p desktop and to get it to boot I had to change some of the BIOS/UEFI settings.  It's quite new so the previous settings were the factory default.  Is there a way to reinitialize it back to factory settings?

Can you still access BIOS setup?  As it probably says at the bottom of the BIOS pages (I don't have one to look at) F9 to load defaults, F10 to save.

Re:How do I reset my BIOS?

I'm struggling with my ThinkCentre with Lenovo BIOS, trying to boot in a second operating system with partition.  I want to be able to run either operating system, and switch when needed.  Trouble is this:  every time I alter the startup BIOS to get it to read either the CD-ROM or USB HDD (containing the new boot program), the BIOS ignores the changes, even though confirmed, saved, and checked/confirmed again.  It appears that the BIOS will recognize NOTHING but the Windows OS.


Is this true?  How do I force the BIOS to accept a non-Windows OS?  I'm weary with the trying, and about to scrap the machine if I can't get what I want out of it!
