Hello there,

It seems there is a solution(very difficvult) through raspberry pi - but the details are not described  ... https://www.notebookcheck.net/ThinkPad-UEFI-failure-Experienced-users-can-repair-their-laptops-with-some-effort.346806.0.html

 

 

Do you know guys is it actually or no?

There is any bios update which can fix this issue?

 

 

Thank you very much.

Solved! See the solution

Welcome to the Community

Yes, the issue has been resolved in BIOS update v.1.15, 16.11.2018
https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n2euj14w.txt

Have a look at the update history (Version information section).

p.s. Please, do not post the same question on different boards. Thanks
