1. remove your hdd
. boot your ideapad (without any device attached to it nor ethernet)
it will show up broadcoms NIC trying to boot remotely and fail...
3. restart your ideapad -> TADA the prompt is back again.

I had this same problem.... it was caused because the machine was in hibernation. I did a full close down and on the next power up the F2 option was available.....
