Yoga Book C930: how to Enter BIOS?

I know on the first generation of Yoga book you would hold the Power/Vol+ to enter the BIOS.

 

Is this the same procedure for the YBc930?

Re: Yoga Book c930 - How to Enter BIOS?

One thing I'm trying to find out is if the YBc930 has a BIOS lock function?

 

The kind where once it is set - the PC will refuse to boot after a restart/shut-down unless a password is entered at the BIOS boot - before it will boot to WIndows.

 

I always find this useful for smaller laptops than can be stolen much more easily.

Hi, McGilli.

 

Standard way of getting into BIOS.

 

Settings-> Update &Security->Recovery->Restart now->Troubleshoot->Advanced Options->UEFI Firmware Settings->Restart.

 

On tab "Security" there's "Secure Boot" option and option "Set Administrators Password".

Re: Yoga Book C930: how to Enter BIOS?

Thanks for the info. That gets me into the BIOS - but - there appears to be no way to update the BIOS to allow a password to be set. All of the options are greyed out.  

 

Also, trying to disable the FAST BOOT option - even if you save and exit - it will not save.

 

Only disabling boot from LAN and USB seems to save. 

 

Tried resetting to factory defaults etc but cannot get access in the BIOS to set up administrator password.

Hi,

Try holding the Fn buttong down while pressing the power button. This should get you to the Novo menu.

Cheers

Hey Martin,

thanks for your reply! 

The eink keyboard appears when the laptop is almost fully booted, so there is not any possibility to do a FN+power button at startup Smiley Happy The shortcut must be another one Smiley Happy

I'm not sure what an 'eink' keyboard is but ok

Just wanted to confirm that on the Yoga C930 I'm currently working on, turning the device on with Fn+Power brings up a screen with "Normal Startup", "BIOS Setup", "Boot Menu", and "System Recovery".  Thanks for this thread!

If you don't know what an eink keyboard is, then you must have the Yoga C930, not the Yoga BOOK C930. Different machine.Smiley Wink

1.- Turn off laptop while pressing shift key to avoid entering Hybernation.

 

2.- Hold "volume down"+"power" keys,  This will turn on the eink keyboard first.  release the buttons.

 

3.-  Press "fn"+"F2" keys repeatedly until it enters novo menu,  choose BIOS Setup.
