Thinkpad X12 detachable stuck in Bootloop

2021-06-09, 20:27 PM


My X12 detachable Thinkpad is doing the same thing, I tried to add secure boot keys I created for non-windows OS. Upon adding the certificates, the computer rebooted and is stuck in this loop. Absolutely nothing works exactly as OP says. Ive tried everything he's tried AND disconnected internal battery for several hours, held down emergency reset and power button at the same time with battery disconnected and to no avail. I seriously have to absolutely send my computer in when this issues been known it sounds like and I only got this computer a few months ago and it's got the latest updated by bios available for it and this is still an issue? I haven't even made any hardware changes either, all hardware is still enabled nothing else has changed. I have even made a bootable USB stick of the BIOS and system maintenance ISO but still nothing? has Lenovo devised any way to fix this since they have not updated at least? thank you

Hello bnice916,

Are you using the BIOS version 1.12 as offered by the support site?
