On my laptop I had dual boot with linux and Windows 7. I had upgraded my 7 to windows 10 and adjusted many settings, but could no longer get into my bios. I have the Lenovo Y510P laptop and tried all sorts of settings (turning off FastStartup, etc.) Doing some research a lot of Lenovo's were having problems getting into their bios after a Windows 10 upgrade, so I went to update my BIOS off of their website to see if I could get into it. After the update it has bricked my machine and I cannot boot into anything. The only thing that comes up is a Boot manager that doesn't recognize any boot devices.

some errors it says are "Default Boot Device missing or Boot Failed" and "insert recovery media". It always ends up saying "no bootable device -- Please restart system". It doesn't recognize USB drives, Hard Drives, CD/DVD's. What is the next step?


Edit: I got into my bios, by holding a lenovo button, however it isnt recognizing any drives in the boot menu, cd, or usb's.

Lenovo's Customer Support is down and I cannot contact them.
