T 440s BIOS issue

Cam someone please help me with updating bios on my T440s laptop. Background: this laptop has windows 8 earlier which is no more there and linux has been installed .( just the linux) but linux installation was not happening so one of my collegue got it working by downloading some bios from some forum. Currently the problem is that it just doesn't do anything when we select cd rom or usb. Dual boot could have been an option but there was some need where we had to install just linux and test something. Now when we try to install windows or update the bios because lot of option are greyed out it does nothing and just sits there. from F12 it allows to choose usb & cd ( iso images) but does nothing. Please see the screenshots. If somehow we can revert to the original bios settings will be great. Thanks Ck

Re: T 440s BIOS issue

Hello

Is the system capable to boot Linux? If yes, is there capabilities in Linux to access Lenovo BIOS WMI interface? Actually, Linux analogs of Windows Visual Basic shell or PowerShell are needed. In this case you might use scripts to manage BIOS settings, load default settings including.

Anyway, what's the BIOS reduction in the laptop presently? Is this BIOS patched?

Yes it boots fine to "Elementayr OS " linux distro . how can i determine if its patched . In one of the screenshot thati shared earlier you can see the BIOS version and yes it might be patched because at some stage i do see "peter van .." name entry while booting
