X1 Yoga gen 4 BIOS options are grayed

2020-01-19, 21:36 PM

I press enter during startup and press enter to get into bios. 

Fingerprint logon required. I press my finger and get into bios. 

However, some options are grayed and i cannot change them. (predesktop fingerprint etc...)


I tried pressing escape on fingerprint and ask me password. i pressed enter and get into bios but same grayed options.


I have never set up a password!!!

Solved! See the solution

Hi groban1! Can you send to us the grayed options in BIOS? Are you referring to the grayed out options on the photo below?


If yes, you need to disable the Secure boot under the Security tab. Please refer to the photo below.
