    Lenovo thinkpad tablet unable to boot from USB Flash/CD


    Hi, I am trying to install Windows 8.1 on Lenovo thinkpad tablet booting from CD and USB drive but system doesn not boot from CD or USB drive. I changed the boot order in BIOS but still no luck. System boots up and takes me to user login rather than booting from CD/USB drive.
    Pre-installed OS is Windows 8 but I cant login because I do not have login information.
    Please help.
    Thanks.

    I had a similar issue with Lenovo, go into PC Setting>Change PC settings>recovery>advance startup. From there you can tell Windows to specifically where to look to boot from. If that still does not work try and set your boot to legacy mode.

    As I mentioned, I do not have login info so cant login. Isn't there any way I can boot directly from dvd or bootable flash drive?

    Hello

    I am running Vudu on a Lenovo Tablet A2107. The Wireless is terrible with Vudu but I have downloaded the file. The downloaded movie plays fine but the voice is way out of sync. Is there any way to adjust this? It is driving me nuts.


    thanks for any help
