2. Read it from BIOS:

 

Press F1 when you see the Lenovo/ThinkPad logo during start to enter BIOS.

 

3. Use The ThinkVantage Toolbox:

Hi there, I have a x1 carbon 2nd gen and I was wondering if there was any way to find the Serial Number other than through the BIOs?

Thing is the sticker was removed and since I have a problem and can't start up the computer... I can't access the BIOs...

If anyone has some suggestions Smiley Happy
