Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

On Lenovos try either F1 or F2 to get in to the bios.

If it's got a built-in drive you'll need to disable Secure Boot, set boot mode to Legacy

and in the Exit section, disable OS optimized defaults.

Save the changes and when it restarts begin tapping the F12 key to load the boot option menu.

Don't try to change boot order in BIOS, it's unnecessary.

What I'm more interested to know is the method you are using to backup/clone?

What does "no good" mean?

You couldn't get in to the BIOS?

You could but can't make changes?

You made changes but they weren't saved?

Acronis boot cd
Expert:  Byron replied 1 year ago.

Once you have the program installed you go into the Utilities section

and create rescue media. You have your choice of CD or flash drive.

Hang on lots of numbers

If you install the program in Trial Version mode you won't have the Clone option available.
