Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen 0.1.34 bios ask a password which I never setup.

Hi all, 

 

TL;DR version: I think that BIOS 1.34 update for X1C6 did something strange which ask me to type some password when enter Bios menu to change every settings but I never setup any password for bios before,  and I wish to contact Lenovo.

 

My Thinkpad X 1 Carbon 6 th 20KGS75906 have some problem with Bios after upgrade to 0.1.34 N23ET59W (1.34 ) 

 

The following is my fwupmgr history. the uuid and deviceID is masked.

And now, whenever I enter the BIOS setup menu, Bios asks me to enter an password. 

 

I can enter the bios even just hit ENTER bottom.

but I can't change any settings.

 

I never setup such a password before. 

 

Did anyone face such problem before? or if there's some way rollback the bios version?

Re: Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen 0.1.34 bios ask a password which I never setup.

Same happened to me.  Updated BIOS via Lenovo Vantage, tried to go into BIOS, was asked for an Administrative Password which I never enabled.  Opened bottom panel to reset BIOS, BIOS now asking for a password due to tamper protection, which I also did not setup.  Presentation due on Monday, Lenovo tech support closed until Monday.
