My Windows 10 Anniversary version broke down on my laptop Lenovo B590 some days ago.
After trying several solutions in UEFI I changed the BIOS to load first from DVD/USB and after that I can't do anything - only first standard Lenovo screen shows up and then blank screen - tap Enter - no reaction.
Using F2, F12, F9/Fn and/or Delete/Esc buttons don't help and nothing else. Esc gives "Entering Diagnostich Splash Screen" and then blank screen. Conclusion, impossible to get into UEFI any more.
I then created a bootable USB with ISO image using Media Creation tool from my wife's/this laptop. Then trying to use the (restricted) repair function from USB without success - then tried to make a clean install but got error message saying that the partition on laptop was GPT version partition and the iso image don't fit to this.
Then downloaded the ISO file directly using Media Creation tool and then used Rufus 2.10 to create a GPT partion for UEFI - but the Lenovo laptop would not react on the USB tool at all - meaning blank screen only.
(Trying to create the MBR partition version with Rufus on USB gave the same result as with the USB from Media Creation tool with the message that the partition on my Lenovo was GPT and therefore the MBR could not be used!)
I have now talked to Microsoft support who could not help but referred to this community for help - so ....help, please?

Hi Garp ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Do you think you would still have the factory image on the harddrive via Novo Menu One Key Recovery ?
B590 is not among listed windows 10 compatible system as some features would not work.
You may also try running the machine using another bootable live rescue media after setting BIOS in the exit tab for OS optimized defaults if available .
Would installing Window 8 work?
As it may be a corrupted download or issue with the stick itself.
Would you be able to try redownload and install same window 10 iso using a different USB stick ?
Update us how it goes.
