T530 boot sequence

2020-12-14, 23:50 PM

I have a thinkpad T530. I accidentally restored the bios to defaults and now the boot order is messed up. Every time I try to change the boot order it doesn’t let me in. I have windows on the hard drive if that helps.

Good day and welcome to the community.

Is there a supervisor password set on the machine?

Regards.

I don't have an older ThinkPad immediately at hand to check its BIOS.
How are you trying to change the order? If memory serves me, a pair of F-keys were used to either move something up or down in the order?

Also, what specific order would you like to achieve?

Regards.

It is the + and - keys to change it. I don’t know what specific order I want just as long as it lets me in.

And I can change the order fine, but I don’t know the correct order and every different order I try it either says diagnosing your pc or says your pc didn’t start up correctly.
