Can't install Windows 10 on X1 Extreme, stuck at Getting ready?

2018-10-04, 23:26 PM

I am rebuidling my brand new X1 Extreme with a clean install of Windows. It get past the first reboot and then gets stuck at screen saying getting ready with spinning dots. Any suggestions? I booted into factory windows so I know hardware is fine. It seems like some incompatibility?

You may have to go into the BIOS and disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy booting if using Windows Installation media on a USB thumb drive.
