Well, the drop-down menu on this website doesn't have a windows 10 option!Also, I do not know how to boot into advanced startup options when I can't even do anything except watch the blue screen flick off (which it did, 5min ago) and be replaced with yet again the blank black screen with "Lenovo" on it. How do I get into Advanced Startup Options? That link in the linked page isn't helping.
Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

That is okay. Lets try to describe exactly what you see on your screen. It is a recovery screen.

It should ask you/give you choices. Can you tell me exactly what your screen says?

34;Lenovo".That's it.The blue screen is gone and I don't know how to get it back.
Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

when you powered it off and back on, is that when it gave you the recovery screen?

The novo button is a tiny small round button between your power button and usb ports

on the side of the pc. Press and hold this button with the computer off. It should put in

back to that recovery mode.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

also, if you get it to initialize, can you tell me if you see one step recovery?

It will look like this:

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht077084

If you hit the novo button and you see these options on the link, follow this link to help you recover.

If not, we will go from there. Just describe what you see.

I found the button (it's recessed into a tiny hole on this model) but pushing it just powers the laptop back on to the Lenovo screen. Again.

Got it! Recovery Boot Menu:Normal Startup
BIOSSetup
Boot Menu
System Recoverywhich do I pick?
Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

I understand it may be frustrating, but lets try this one more time.

Hold that button in if you are able while the computer is 'off/powered down',

until it passes the Lenovo screen and tries to boot the recovery menu.

This may take several seconds.

tehn, while I was typing that, the screen went black again.
Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Lets try to get there again. You can use the novo button as before.

Once we get recovery options, we are going to hit escape to go into UEFI settings.

Then we select bios settings and disable secure boot. This should keep us where we need

to be.

If all else fails, we can use to ISO you are creating or try and factory reset it.

I understand.

What you need is a windows 10 install usb. You cannot create it with your Chromebook, but you can get it

here for under 10$.

Once you have it, you can boot from it. Then reinstall windows.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
