Windows 10 is corrupt on my Y520 and booting into the windows 10 automatic repair screen. I am not able to reset or repair via the windows 10 tools so I'm trying to re-install windows from the factory image, but when I press the novo button with the system off and select System Recovery it just boots back into the windows repair.
Any suggestions for how to access system recovery and re-install windows via the factory image.

Hi Tige_surfer! Welcome to our forums community. It seems the OS is corrupted as well as the recovery partition. Could you check if the HDD is still detected from BIOS under the Information tab. Here is a guide: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht500216. You can also create a recovery media for Windows 10. All you need is a blank USB flash drive with at least 8GB of space or blank DVD. You can refer to this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10.
