Device Description

The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is a high-end 2-in-1 Ultrabook™ - It is powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core processor (formerly "Haswell").


Support Status

Console OS Lollipop is supported on the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro.


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.


HiDPI

The Yoga 2 Pro has one of the highest resolution displays on a laptop today. A lot of icons may be smaller than expected.

We plan to provide updates that will auto-detect and adjust DPI for HiDPI displays like the one inside Yoga 2 Pro in the near future.

Advanced users with root access may be able to manually adjust the DPI - but we do not recommend this unless you are an advanced user.
