X1 Yoga 1st Gen Secure Boot

2018-08-04, 8:13 AM



I have a X1 Yoga, 1st Gen Windows 10. I'm trying to do a SSD upgrade. The problem is that I am unable to disable the secure boot option within the BIOS. When I enter the BIOS and authenticate using my fingerprint and password. I then navigate to secure boot option to disable but when I attempt to make the select disable the machine just beeps. Has anyone else encountered the same issue and how did they manage to disable the secure boot?

If you cannot change the options, it sounds like you entered your power-on password instead of your supervisor password and you are viewing the BIOS in read-only mode.
