On most Ideapads, especially the slim ultrabook models, there should be a (very small) Novo button right next to the power button on the front:

This will launch Lenovo's OneKey Recovery program where you can find different boot options. Hopefully, this will solve your problem, but if you're installing Windows 10 this sort of thing can happen, and in some cases you may have to factory reset the machine. That's where you use the Novo button.

Best of luck,

Hi. I tried the novo botton and all the boot option but still didn't work.
Do you still have other options?


Thanks a lot,
Nadia

I want to get to the boot sequence so I can install Linux via usb. My lenovo ideapad yoga 11 doesn't have the novo button. It is model 20187. I was on the telephone with Lenovo support for 2 hours and nothing worked. Function F1, F2 and F12 - no joy. Volume up and Windows Key (on display) did not work. I believe the hard drive is locked with Bitlocker and I have the key but I never needed it. TIA Dave
