now first make sure the system is OFF
Press the power button and start hitting F2
You will boot to Lenovo BIOS Screen and here are the settings you need to change
First go to the Exit TAB and look for these settings
OS Optimization or OS Optimized you will Need to change it to Compatible or Other OS.
Next go to Configuration TAB and Security TAB and look for Secure BOOT set it to Disabled.
Last would be to go to Boot Tab and look for these settings.
UEFI boot - Set it to disabled
Boot Model - set it to Legacy
Boot Priority - Set it to Legacy First
Now hit F10 and it should ask you to save and exit just hit Enter for Yes.
After hitting enter your system will restart now quicly start hitting F12 on your keyboard and this will give you an option to Select where to boot, just choose your ODD driver with the Windows CD in it.
(If it did not give you the options restart the system and try hitting F2 again.
Let me know your findings
Hope this helps

Same procedure, the only difference is that you will have to choose USB instead of the ODD once you pulled the F12 option on the last step
Let me know if you need anything
For now.. Yeah! Sleep well you have a PC to run tomorrow

Ok choose diagnostic on that
What are the options under the UEFI/Legacy if there is an option for Legacy choose that.
