Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Gen 3 : cannot be used as a tablet Obsolete BIOS/ECP with Missing Support

 

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Gen 3 : cannot be used as a tablet

Obsolete BIOS/ECP with Missing Support for ‘no win button’ logon

(support Power + Volume up button combination to notify "CTRL+ALT+DEL")

 

SITUATION

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Gen 3 (model 20KK) with Windows 10

Company forces the safety policy to No Win Button logon (right decision)

The hardware “Power + Volume up” to replace the CTRL-ALT-DEL is not working on Lenovo ThinkPad X1 tablet gen 3

 

ISSUE:

I cannot use a screen logon to Windows 10 (inhibited by safety policy).

I can only logon when the keyboard is connected (to use hard CTRL-ALT-DEL)

> The Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet X1 Gen 3 can only be used as a normal laptop…

 

DETAILS

  • System Win 10 64b (10.0.16299)
  • Model 20KKS1111J
  • BIOS UEFI 26 (Lenovo N1ZET70W (9/18/2018)
  • ECP 06

Note:

CTRL+ALT+DEL is implemented by the embedded controller firmware (ECFW, also referred to as ECP)

The issue was known and solved by Lenovo for ECP>1.06 on other tablets.
(see BIOS1.16//ECP1.08 was solving the issues and also BIOS1.54/ECP1.11)

QUESTIONS

  1. Why is Lenovo selling tablet with obsolete ECP1.06 on fresh new Lenovo X1 Gen 3 tablet, even in the latest BIOS ?
  2. When do you think we have the right ECP update on Lenovo ThinkPad X1 tablet gen 3 ?
  3. Any suggestion how to solve/bypass this ?

 

I realize it was stupid to purchase and pay for a tablet and use it as a basic laptop.

This is frustrating and I thank you for your help to solve or bypass this.
