Dear Walter,

thanks for your answer. I did not touch any settings between installation
and the final system. That what confused me. There was no change at all
between working and non working USB state just a simple reboot.

To make things more complex. First time, when failed, I installed from
external USB single sided DVD media. I have another M900 machine. Now I
made a USB pendrive installer from double sided DVD media (called
everything). And now it is working. The two machines is exactly the same
based on the serial numbers, checked on Lenovo site, but I have seen some
difference between BIOS settings. No idea why. Now I try to investigate
what is "problem" with the first machine. And why there is such BIOS

BR, Zsolt
