The Arch Wiki has some tips. I have a completely working Arch Linux setup on X1EG2.

 

I tried Pop_OS! briefly and it worked out-of-the-box, if you're looking for something easy to setup, you may want to try it out.

Hi - can you give some more details around "borked" please :) I don't have an X1E2 but I do have the P1G2 which is very similar and I've not had any BIOS update related issues. If you let me know what you're seeing I'll see if we have any ideas what is going on.

Let me know which BIOS you updated to, what you're running, and what error messages or boot issues you're seeing. 

Thanks

Mark

Sorry to not reply sooner.

 

BIOS Information
        Vendor: LENOVO
        Version: N2OET41W (1.28 )
        Release Date: 11/25/2019
        Address: 0xE0000
        Runtime Size: 128 kB
        ROM Size: 32 MB

 

Not entirely sure what happened ,but I have fully functioning system now.

 

My fault for messing with BIOS.

 

It used to have quite a fancy BIOS screen which is now very basic. There appears to be an option to change this but it is greyed out.
