X250 always boots into BIOS

(Obviously after update to BIOS 1.23) my Thinkpad X250 (Windows 10 Pro 1607) always boots into BIOS. I am able to start the X250 via F12 but this can't be the longterm solution.

 

I already tried with no success:

 

Do you have any idea(s)? Thanks - Michael

Re: X250 always boots into BIOS

Sounds like your boot order is messed up.  Boot into the BIOS.  Go to startup/boot.  What does it say for the order?  Hit F9 to load defaults.  Try again

Re: X250 always boots into BIOS

Boot order is: 1st device is Boot Manager (as it should be?). Even changing to SSD as 1st device does not help.

 

(Optimized) defaults set: Does not help.

 

And: If I select Boot Manager via F12 the X250 boots without any problems.

X250 always boots into BIOS

I performed some further tests:

 

  1. Clean install 1607 on harddisk: No Boot-Problems
  2. Clean install 1607 on SSD: About every second 2nd Boot shows „Intel PXE Boot“

It looks, like the SSD is not always (quick enough) recognized by BIOS / Boot-Manager.

 

Any ideas?  Many thanks - Michael

Re: X250 always boots into BIOS

The keyboard was the troublemaker! Due to a unstable connection mainboard-keyboard F1-keytrokes were transferred at random. Thus the laptop in these cases started with BIOS.

 

I have to ask Lenovo support for a stable connection (the little black fixing part was broken)

 

Thanks to all - Michael
