Windows 7: Insyde H2O EFI BIOS locked

No,it isn't. I am somewhat experienced in BIOS or UEFI firmwares,but someone must have used the computer and entered a password so that I can't get in. It didn't have a password on the purchase date. I have used the firmware to enable Intel VT-x (for VMware),change UEFI Mode to Legacy Support (otherwise Windows 7 will fail to boot with 0xc000428 error).

Ok, I'm not sure what you do now? Forum rules restrict what can be said about bypassing passwords etc. And as you likely already know, removing the CMOS battery in a laptop will not reset the password. I think I'd be talking to who ever else had access to that PC. The manufacturer of the laptop may help, if you can prove ownership.

The only thing that I found to contact Lenovo is their shop site. I can't find anything else.

Look for a "Contact Us" option, you should end up at a page like this, Contact | Lenovo CA
