I tried to factory reset my laptop (Lenovo, Windows 10). It progressed up to 32% and is stuck there for more than 12 hours. What to do? How can I discontinue the reset and can I start afresh?

Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help in solving the issue.
- Start by doing a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug its AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds until it completely shuts down.
