    • Unscrew the nine captive screws on the bottom cover of the laptop using a Phillips #1 screwdriver.

    • The screws do not fully come out of the back cover, so there is no need for screw management.

    • There are a few small clips around the edge that you may need to pry at to free them. An opening pick may be helpful for this process.

Ive got a issue with my X1 Carbon not booting up . It will start up and tell me that my date and time is wrong but then it only gives me two choices Esc to continue or F1 to enter setup. Either way it takes me to a startup interrupt menu and then from there it takes me to boot menu where it says ATA HDDO: Toshiba it's a hard drive I'm guessing cuz it says it has 128 GB capacity. Again I'm faced with two choices because now I have boot menu and app menu, where do I fix this because my laptop is in great shape until all of this started.

1st you have to confirm the boot to device, which is the toshiba drive. as it boots 2nd time, press esc again. it will now boot normally (to toshiba drive). you have to replace the coin battery, otherwise you will face that again when the laptop battery drains to 0%.
