Lenovo G580 boot menu is not working when pressing F2 and F12 key

I have a Lenovo G580 20157. Preinstalled with windows 8. I installed Ubuntu 16.10 and removed windows completely. When I resized the Ubuntu partition to take over Windows partition everything went smooth until I plugged it in. Now I'm stuck in a boot loop. I have tried every fix, except the bios recovery for Phoenix can't find the bios.wph file. 

Should mention hard drive was completely erased. Can't do anything now, not even bios menu. 

Please any suggestion I'll try.

Please try removing the hard disk , then try using F2 button to enter bios .

If you are successful in entering the bios, Load set up defaults.

Connect the Hard drive back and check by pressing F2 to enter Bios

 

If above steps didn't fix the issue , please visit nearest service center to have system tested

 


 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

I'm sorry but that new title is wrong, I can't boot at all it's in a boot loop and yes I've tried everything on this laptop. It's given me trouble the whole time I've owned it never buying lenovo again only reason I need to save it is because it's all I have for now. I'm in a boot loop not a can't get in bios menu, that's after boot

I was stuck in a boot logo loop after changing the HDD and the FAN.
Logo would appear every 2 seconds interval.
 
1. Power down
2. Remove the battery
3. Hold the "F12" key down
4. Power up the laptop
5. Problem solved, I was able to access the Boot menu.
 
...Now I needed to access bios.
1. Power down
2. Hold the "F2" key down
3. Bios appeared (non-UEFI)
4. Problem solved (I was able to access the BIOS)
