Getting '--MORE-- unknown key 0xff detected' when booting Thinkpad

Hi everyone,

I am running Trisquel 10 on a Thinkpad with coreboot.

I inserted a usb with another OS into my laptop today and restarted my computer, trying to boot into that OS.

I guess I pressed 'F2' one too many times because I just saw '--MORE-- unknown key 0xff detected' and this was the dialogue that kept going below the regular Grub menu (I think). I have attached a screenshot.

When I remove all usbs (including the dongle for my mouse), the laptop boots properly without this dialogue.

Any help for me?

Best,

Is the installed version of coreboot recent? 2016 or later? I am asking because of https://trisquel.info/forum/solved-librebooted-macbook-more-unknown-key-0xff-detected that describes a solution to apparently the same problem, but with a MacBook.

Yeah I saw that as well. I think more recently. Now even when I have a usb dongle inserted, this message shows up.
