Thinkpad X1 Carbon 6th Gen stuck in Boot Menu

2019-01-29, 11:27 AM

Hi everyone,


so when starting my Thinkpad (~3 months old, Arch Linux) this morning, it installed a firmware (actually I don't remember anymore what kind of update it was exactly) update. After having updated, I could not boot anymore and just got stuck in the boot menu instead. The only available options were NVMe0 (my ssd) and PCI Lan. Choosing NVMe0 did not do anything, I just got send to the boot menu again. Choosing PCI Lan ended up starting the Intel booting agent (or whatever it's called) but in the end did not succeed either.

I tried using 'Legacy only' as suggested in several other forums but that didn't work.

I can however boot from USB and 'lsblk' also lists my SSD.


Any idea how to recover without losing all my data ?
