Re: Lenovo Miix 720 Bios Unlock

Hello and welcome,

 

You don't specify what it is that's "locked".  If you're talking about inability of Linux to access the primary drive, there was a BIOS update published in July that added AHCI mode.

 

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/miix-series/miix-720-12ikb/downloads

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/3scn66ww.exe

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/3scn66ww.txt

 

This BIOS creates an AHCI SATA Controller Mode selection to allow for the installation of the Linux operating system.
This BIOS AHCI MODE is NOT intended for use with machines running a Windows operation system.
No official support is provided for this BIOS of AHCI MODE.  The user assumes the risk of any performance degradation associated with the use of this BIOS of AHCI MODE.

Ah, I completely misunderstood your question.

 

Have you actually tried to enble VT in BIOS?  I don't have a 720 but on my 700:  Novo menu, then Configuration, the scroll the left panel until Intel Virtual Technology shows up.
