Device Description

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon is an Ultrabook™ and is powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core processor (formerly "Haswell").


Support Status

Console OS Lollipop generally works well with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon - provided the latest firmware updates and BIOS are installed first.

NFC and 4G WWAN, if installed, are not supported at this time.


Installation Instructions

You must be running the latest BIOS from Lenovo.com before installing Console OS. We only test and validate Console OS using the latest system BIOS available, and BIOS updates are critical to the performance-tuning of Console OS and the underlying UEFI firmware.

Before installing, fully read the Release Notes - Including creating a Windows Recovery Drive, and disabling Secure Boot, as well as creating a Console OS Install Flash Drive.

To install Console OS, rapidly press the F12 key when booting the machine. Make sure a USB keyboard is connected (per the notes above) Make sure the Console OS Install Flash Drive that you built per the Release Notes is inserted prior to powering the machine up.

If the Console OS Install Flash Drive does not show up in the F12 boot menu, this is typically due to the machine not waiting long enough for your USB flash drive to enumerate. To work around this, press Control-Alt-Delete and try again. Do not cold boot the machine in this situation.
