I have an enterprise locked Lenovo 100e 2nd gen and I’m trying to either unlock it or install linux on it (preferably unlock it, but I wouldn’t mind the possibly easier route of ignoring chrome’s antics altogether)
- I can’t get into the thing so I can’t power wash it
- I’ve tried using a recovery USB which only put a much newer version of ChromeOS on (which might’ve ironically patched something I coulda used to get outta this mess)
- when entering recovery mode and doing ctrl+d it says “developer mode is disabled on this device by system policy” and doesn’t give me the option to enter dev mode
- I’ve tried unplugging the battery, holding power for a while (w/ ac power) and such but nothing seems to work
I might be able to get into chromeOS if I trick it into not knowing it’s own serial number to bypass the enterprise lock, but I need dev mode for that as far as I know. That’s also got to be on the motherboard somewhere, but I don’t know where to start with that line of thinking.
Any help appreciated (:
