Are you planning on Linux or Windows single boot or dual?

This does not necessarily depend on the OS configuration, but on SecureBoot.

In my case this is a Linux only setup.

 

Deploying own SecureBoot keys is possible even on Windows (PlatformKey, PK).

Due to this Bug, if you deploy these via KeyTool.efi it will brick the Laptop and loop with "Configuration changed - restart system".

Thank you again for the information and we will pass this on to the engineering team for further investigation.

Thank you, please also note that this seems to affect multiple recent ThinkPad lines like T and X.

Allow me to check this with fellow advocates since this is more on server deployment.

Hi Jwes_Lenovo, is there an update regarding this issue? My Thinkpad T14s will (hopefully) be back from repair soon and I need to know, if this issue will be addressed soon, as my company requires Secure Boot to be enabled.

I would suggest opening a post with the details of your system to our Enterprise deployment boards.

"Enterprise Deployment Board" is that support English for "please choose Dell oder HP next time"?

 

No honestly, consumers as well as colleagues brick their laptops by using standard UEFI/Secure Boot functions and all you guys do is reroute people in endless support queues?

Are there any news on that? Is the BIOS/UEFI bug confirmed? Will it be fixed? I am using 1.35 version of firmware, and there are nothing in changelog about that. If I try to enroll my keys, will it brick my ThinkPad?

If you use keytool, you will brick it.

The workaround seems to be to use the BIOS own tool to provision the keys.

 

Still Lenovo should take some care that tools like keytool can't brick it. 

 

Have no official confirmation that it is being worked on and Lenovo support is very picky.
