You need to restore your disk as comes from factory.   If you created recovery DVD's you can use these, or if you have not wiped out the hidden system partition, you can power off and press the 'novo' button to boot to the hidden partition and follow the steps to restore to factory condition.  Note, this will wipe all data.



To install from recovery disks, you need to connect the disk using an USB interface or using another computer.

Note: Only properly licensed copies of an OS should be used.

It's not hung, it's just that you obviously have no bootloader.

Try an original SL 10.6.3 retail DVD with a bootloader like "iBoot" (better with the parameters -x -v busratio=xx {the busratio of your CPU} if you want to install OSX.


If you want to be sure you can install Ubuntu Linux afterwards. It comes with the bootloader GRUB which identifies also OSX.

Try a third party bootloader(I recommend iBoot) that is compatible with OSX. 

If that doesn't work, mabye it's Apple knowing you did something on a PC.

If the first one doesn't work, then I suggest sending it to Lenovo

I'm not sure how much it cost, but i'm estimating 200$. Sorry! I should pay closer attention to the dates, next time. Please delete this if you come across it, admin.
