So a few days ago I accidentally dropped the laptop on the floor and the screen is completely broken beyond repair.
I need to install Windows on it but neither the BIOS nor the Windows setup will output on the external monitor.
Is there a hotkey to switch output during BIOS splash? (Fn+F10 does not work).
Thanks in advance

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.
I believe the only way to do this is to internally disconnect the main screen from the mainboard, then if you plug in the external screen, that would be the only one that the unit can detect and would therefore use that.
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
