X220T Bios and External DVD Drive Compatibility?

Hi there,

 

I'm planning to buy an External DVD Drive to be able to Boot from it, using my X220T Tablet.

I've been having problems lately and I want to reset it to Factory Settings.

But for that I need to either create a Bootable USB Drive or Get an External DVD Drive.

 

The 2nd option is my first choice as I do have some Software DVDs I would like to install anyway.

So, I just want to ensure the BIOS of the X220T is actually supporting Booting from an External DVD Drive

 

Thank you in advance!

According to the page 108 of the manual, the x220t can boot from an optical drive that is connected to a usb port.  You will need to use the F12 key when turning the machine on so you can select the desired start-up drive.

The only time I've needed to read a manual is after getting this laptop!

 

Can you guess how to get into the UEFI bios?
