I am having trouble unlocking/resetting my ThinkPad 1838 tablet. I get a message that I had made too many attempts at trying to unlock, even after I entered my username and password.
I keep getting prompted to sign in. How can I perform a reset if couldn't unlock it?
There are two ways to perform a reset you may want to try.
Method 1: Reset through emergency reset hole
Disconnect the power supply of the internal battery by pressing the emergency reset button inside the emergency reset hole using a straightened paper clip.
Method 2: Reset through the bootloader
Note: All personal data will be erased.

Reboot into bootloader mode appears locked, and investigation here and elsewhere leads me to believe that is the case, so the volume button-power button combo does nothing other than a normal boot?
