    Windows 8 Boot Up selection screen - Needing to press ent


    Hi

    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Twist laptop Windows 8 pro. I reset the laptop using the recovery partition to a factory state.
    Now everytime I turn on the laptop it gives me a selection screen , and I have to press enter everytime. I don't have any other OS in the laptop, so I don't know why it doesn't default to the main OS. I searched on google and follows some instructions but none has worked.

    I have reformatted the samsung internal drive , so it is unallocated right now. The main OS is installed in Hitachi.

    I have attached a picture of the screen.

    Any help.

    Thanks

    What you are seeing is from the Bios, not the OS. You have to change the behavior from within the bios.

    I did play around with the bios. I excluded all the other boot list item beside the windows boot manager, but once i did that, it still goes to that screen with windows boot manager the only thing on the list.

    You need to go into the bios and reset it back to the Factory state. If you are able to get to the cmos battery. You can pull the cmos battery and reset the bios back to a factory state also.

    Lenovo is unique in how they have their systems setup to do particular things. You may want to check the Lenovo forums to see if anyone else have the same problems that you are with that machine.
