Can't boot on USB or CD on a Thinkpad 10 20C1

Hello,

 

First of all, sorry for my english, it's not my first language.

I have a problem with my Thinkpad 10 20C1. 

I want to change the operating system and put Windows 10 64 bits on it. 

So I create a USB key with Rufus to create the bootable device. 

 

But when I booting, the system boot on the disk, and starting the windows who is installed on the tablet.

This USB key works great on an other PC.

I disabled secure boot, and on the "Main" tab (in the Thinkpad Tablet Setup) I have "UEFI Secure Boot Disabled".

But it didn't work.

Can you help me please ?

I tried with an external CD player but the problem is still the same.

Thank Smiley Happy

Yes of course, the boot order is correctly set.

I've never seen a problem like that.

If you have the USB/CD connected then boot to the boot order setting screen, does it identify your USB properly (i.e. shows brand or device name?)

Can you try a different method of creating the bootable USB instead of Rufus? I assume you are trying a Windows ISO or Linux ISO?

Re: Can't boot on USB or CD on a Thinkpad 10 20C1

Hello all,

 

reference to the same issue, i followed up everything possible, the tablet still wont boot from 3 different bootable USBs and 2 different bootable CD.

Different (means different OD, WIN and Linux).

at the boot order, this tablet recognized exactly the name and the model of my USB drives and CD ROM.

 

Any other solution Please?

 

Thanks,

AbdelCA
