Can't access bios after installing SSD in Lenovo x120e

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For odd reasons, I can't access the bios of my lenovo x120e after having installed an SSD in it. Do I need to do any recovery or something? Do you know what I need to do? I did a fresh windows 7 Home premium install on the SSD.

Edit: The ThinkVantage toolbox doesn't recognize my laptop as being licensed...

Thanks in advance!

I somewhat figured it out! Yay.

What'd you have to do to get it to work? Just incase future users have the same issue and use the search feature.

I reinstalled the ThinkVantage Toolbox and was able to access the bios. Strange

The blue ThinkVantage button doesn't directly access BIOS. You need to hit one of the F-keys instead (forget which one).
