Hey all, Any tips at all you want to post here would be super awesome, I'm not a bios modder but I understand most of the systems pretty well... Background: I think I really managed to ruin my new laptop and could use some expertise here I have a Lenovo U410 Laptop with the latest un-whitelisted Wifi BIOS installed it has been working fine without any issue until I did the following: I booted off a USB stick into a UEFI shell prompt (2.0) that I got here: edk2.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot.../Shell.efi I was following instructions here on editing my list of UEFI boot items: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uni..._Interface My goal to add my Windows 8 UEFI boot loader onto the list of available options so I could install Windows 8 onto my GPT formatted HD (i have linux already installed and didn't want to convert to msdos partition scheme) I used the 'bcfg boot dump' command which listed all of my default bios boot options including one annoying one called '\Windows Boot Manager' that was pointing to a no longer existing efi file.. I deleted a few that I would never use, like Lan boot and some others then added the cdrom-boot.efi file from my USB stick.. OK the good stuff below: Upon Reboot I can no longer access my BIOS via F2 or Fn-F2 or my Boot menu via F12, the system immediatly tries to boot onto USB stick, And persists until a USB stick is interested it just sits at black screen.. Once a bootable USB is inserted it boots up fine.. I have one with LILO on so I'm able to boot my linux partitions just fine.. I unplugged the battery and CMOS battery and restarted the machine, this reset many bios settings to default, boot didn't repair the issue... I even booted a windows PE environment and Re-Flashed the Bios. but same problem.. every time i boot into the shell the same 'bcfg boot dump' enteries persist.. I think they are stored somewhere in NVRAM, but I don't really understand how BIOS NVRAM works.. Can someone help me!! I'm guessing that if i can wipe/format the NVRAM perhaps it will auto fill with default settings?!?!? I'm scared to wipe the NVRAM and brick my system.. I can boot linux off my USB stick boot still, and tried wiping the /dev/nvram device, this only resets the RTC clock but not the rest of NVRAM.. any help would be great!! I have screen captures and text dumps from UEFI shell also if those help.!!! PS: I hope this is an ok thread for this post.. thanks!
