    BIOS of Lenovo Yoga 2 11, need its early version


    Anyone has Lenovo Yoga 2 11 BIOS early version? v1.03 or v1.06
    I did a mistake last weekend. now see if a chance to let me flash back.

    Status: 0xc000000d, or #1223

    BIOS v1.03 was with CSM option. support both Windows 7 32/64-bit
    BIOS v1.06 started with UEFI only.
    BIOS v1.9x is with Win 8.1/10 only. No 32-bit. No Windows 7 any more.

    Lenovo only lists the following BIOS updates for the Yoga 2 11:

    • BIOS Update for Windows 8.1 (64-bit), Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 2 11
      (Haswell) BIOS Update #94 16 Sep 2015 4.2 MB
    • BIOS Update for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Windows 8 (64-bit), Windows 8.1 (64-bit), Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 2 11
      (Baytrail-M) BIOS Update #93 16 Sep 2015 3.5 MB


    Are you trying to install Windows 7? If so, would BIOS #93 work for you?

    Don't do that flash

    my Yoga was running Win7.

    not any more (read my post #1223). boot failure. no way to repair.
    had to move to Win8.1 last night (installed from Win8.1 ISO). now my Yoga 2 11 looks like a big size Windows Phone.

    Lenovo has removed early versions which could run Windows 7. (read my #1 post)

    Sounds like you are talking about the mode where you have a lot of apps. They wanted to call it Metro mode but had to change it to Modern mode because of a copyright dispute. They envisioned making Windows, phones and tablets to have a similar look with computers also having a touchscreen interface. Unfortunately, they forgot to ask actual users what they thought of that idea because most rejected it. Note, even Windows 10 has a remnant of that idea with some apps in the start menu.

    It has been a while since I ran Windows 8.1 on a computer. It has two modes:

    1. Modern mode with apps
    2. Traditional Windows desktop mode

    I think I remember in the settings you can make the Windows desktop mode the default when you boot the computer.

    I started with Windows 8. I missed the Windows start menu so much I installed a program called Classic Shell. This start menu emulator at least made Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 tolerable.

    Thanks,

    Will try.

    Wish you had early BIOS version. I am missing Win7 on Yoga.


    Right,

    Windows, if no "Start" button is NOT Windows any more. feel NOT good.
    Are you going to upgrade to Win10?

    I have tried Win10 32-bit. but cannot boot.(UEFI only by last BIOS flash)
    Win10 64-bit is my next try. If its Touchpad works, I would stay with Win10 64-bit (due to I2C issue, most 32-bit has data serial IO port problem, touchpad NOT functional correctly)

    I don't understand why you think that you are done when you are left with Windows 8.1. Like I said in post #4 you can configure Windows 8.1 to start in the regular desktop mode. That way you can ignore the phone-like apps if you want. You can also install a program like Classic Shell to give a more Windows 7 like start menu if you want.

    I have the use of a 12 year old Dell laptop that came with Windows 7. Its CPU has 2 core and 4 threads. It has 4GBs RAM.

    When Windows 8 came out I installed it on the laptop as a dual-boot with Windows 7. When Windows 8.1 came out I upgraded Windows 8 to it. When Windows 10 came out I upgraded Windows 8.1 to it. Now the computer has a dual-boot of Windows 7 and Windows 10. I mainly use Windows 10 on it now and only boot Windows 7 to check for updates.

    HeHe,

    IMO,

    1. Windows 7 is a working machine. good for Office and engineering tasks (my Win7 run various macros and scripts. all of my Win7 are busy)
    2. Windows 10/11 is an entertainment machine, good for online media surfing (video, audio, social media, , ,). It is popping up all kinds of topics/ADs. when I watch them, must NOT focus on work. distraction. . Macros are running slow on Win10/11.
    3. Windows 8/8.1 is a big phone (no "Start" button is NOT Windows). need a plan to use it. as most if its functions, AAPL can do better.

    @MisterEd Classic shell has been replaced by open shell. It is exactly the same so I'm not sure what they changed. It is also the only way I can tolerate 8.1. Open Shell 4.4.169 Download | TechSpot
