My BIOS version with this problem is N1DET91W (2.17 )
Interesting. I'm pretty sure I skipped 2.17, updating to 2.19 from a version earlier than that. Of course, I'm not sure that the P70 uses the exact same BIOS as the T460p, so my observation may be, um, useless

Actually, your initial explanation is EXACTLY what happened to me, word for word, so the issue must be the same regardless of the version and model.

@Montec, have you tried flashing an earlier (or later, if available) BIOS? None of the versions will flash on my system now; I get "process does not recognize this system."
And UPS just showed up with a "new" motherboard, so I'm expecting a call from Lenovo dispatch to arrange a visit before too long.

I'm not confident it will go well; it's certainly not a factory fresh replacement motherboard (thus the quotes around the word new in my previous post).
It's obvious that their "SecureFlash" solution is anything but.

Nope, still not fixed. I do have a USB hub in my display (Lenovo X1 27") that's plugged into the dock; I'll try removing that. I'm still concerned that I can't update to the latest firmware, though.
If unplugging the hub is the price I have to pay to get a successful reboot I might just pay it.

Verified. Unplugging the USB-A to USB-C cable that connects to the X1 display allows me to reboot while docked.
I'm thinking this is something that was caused by the last successful firmware update (2.19 for me) and may be fixed in a future one, but of course I'm skeptical that I'll be able to update to it.
What to do, what to do ...
