Bios or boot manager options missing during start up on X1 Carbon 6th Gen 2018

When start up, my device no longer shows options such as 'press enter to enter bios set up' , and no longer responds when I press f1, f2, f12 etc repeatedly.  

 

Instead, it keeps running to open the windows log in page. 

 

It did work fine but changed over night. 

 

Any ways i could restore that? Thanks!

Re: Bios or boot manager options missing during start up on X1 Carbon 6th Gen 2018

That usually means that fast startup is enabled, and you are powering on after a "normal" windows shutdown - that's more like hibernation.  Why it would change overnight is a puzzle.

 

Do you see the "enter" option, or does F12/F11/F?? work, on a restart?  How about if you do a SHIFT + shut down, then power on?  If that/those work, it's "normal".  If it's undesired, turn off fast startup.

@zoltanthegypsy, thanks!

 

the options didn't appear, and keys were unresponsive.

 

However, resetting the power options (via a slightly different interface and path) to default seems to do the trick for a run, and the second time the 'enter' for bios message only appears after restarting again when the first start up loads the windows log in page.

 

Feeling strange, I have tried resetting the device to factory setting via lenovo recovery media, but cancelled it half way as I had to move but this gets me stuck for almost 2hours (still does at the time I am typing this) 

 

Wanted to attach some snapshots but unable to atm. Will do when able.

Here's the snapshots, for better clarity:

The recovery process has been static entirely for the past 3 hours. 

 

Will it be OK if I just cut it completely by shutting off? 

 

Further queries, at this stage:

1) is the device susceptible to external interference via WiFi, radio signals etc? 

 

2)is there a way to quickly address it? I have been rendered almost completely immobile because of this 

 

Thanks! 

 

Thanks in advance! 

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
