I'm at a complete loss here. Brand new T430. I changed the settings in BIOS to UEFI and installed Windows 7 x64 successfully. But I can no longer get into the BIOS. F1, F12, Enter nothing works.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes, I do. I hit Enter, nothing happens. Tried all possible keys, hit them many times, no luck.
I have given up at this point. Very frustrating. There are other reports on this issue too. Was there a bad BIOS update from Lenovo?

To claify, all the keys works once Windows boots. But they don't during POST. I cannot get into the BIOS to change boot order etc. At this point the system is unusable for me since I need to reinstall the OS by booting off a DVD or network etc.

Can you help me with this problem?
I hit enter to stop the normal boot and then appear a window to select different options:
- F1: Enter BIOS
- Another one I don't remember
- F12: Select bootable device
Any of the menus I've tryied to enter I got a message afterwards saying:
"Intel Boot Agent GE v1.3.81
PXE 2.1 Build 091 WfM 2.0)"
And just stays there. Nothing happens.
After pressing F1 or F12 or other, I got a small message saying press CTRL+S to enter the setup menu. If I press it, I enter in a menu just to change the amount of time that message appear and if I want it or not.
Can you help me?
I need to activate the virtualization on the BIOS in order to setup virtual machines!

I have this problem too, but I do *not* get the POST prompt "To interrupt normal start up, Press Enter". I am running Windows 7 and have not made any changes to the BIOS.

Yesterday I installed windows 8.1 home (and a few days ago windows 7 pro) on my t20 booting from a usb both times; I went into f1 and f12 for both, no problems) . I then installed windows 10 home (so this is what I am running right now). Today I went to re-install windows 7 pro (there really is a reason for all this) and f1 doesnt do anything. Help!
