I assume that was the BIOS with a fix to also boot Linux when no partition 
is marked bootable? Been there with my T520. But didn´t install the BIOS 
Update yet, just marked partition with /boot as bootable even when Linux 
itself does not need it.

Same here. I think the current tp-smapi doesn´t properly support the new 
models. I didn´t get anything back regarding my post on that topic on 
linux thinkpad mailing list.
