System upgrade from win 7 to win 10 on X1 Carbon 20FB

Hello All,


I’ve received the Windows Downgrade Recovery Media for windows 10 Pro from Lenovo and I’ve followed all steps for the upgrade from windows 7 :


-Bios and all driver update with ThinkVantage

-changed in bios option “OS Optimized defaults to enable”


-press f12 and boot from usb key


After that, a black screen with win10 Logo appear

in 10 seconds it changes to a Lenovo Logo with a lifebelt

I would expect a windows form for the selection languages , but my thinkpad x1 reboot and restart with windows 7.

I tried also to modify from bios the boot order putting the highest priority to USB, but in this way start a loop.

I think that the problem could be in the USB media that they have sent me.

My upgrade to win10 pro is stuck, do you have any idea?
