Notes
  • If the UEFI BIOS has been updated to version 2.50 or higher, it is no longer able to roll back to the version before 2.50, because the new 10-digit part number and serial number format was once installed. The old UEFI BIOS with the 7-digit part number and serial number format can not handle the 10-digit format.
  • Be aware that the OS Optimized Defaults option in the Restart menu of ThinkPad Setup should not be normally changed. Lenovo recommends to use the factory default setting for it, as follows.
                                                                          OS Optimized Defaults
    • For Windows 8 64-bit Preload models                      [Enabled]
    • For Windows 8 32-bit or Windows 7 Preload models   [Disabled]
  • To install the retail edition of Windows 8 64-bit, the OS Optimized Defaults option should be [Enabled].
  • If the OS Optimized Defaults setting is changed, Setup Default by the F9 key will not load the same default configuration, as follows. Furthermore, by the condition of Operating System installation, the computer may not be booted due to the setting change.
  • If your computer runs satisfactorily now, you have no need to change the OS Optimized Defaults option. If you need to change the setting, consider well the effect of the setting change.
