I bought a used Ideapad V570 and it wont boot past the Lenovo logo page. I've outlined everything I've tried below:
-first of all the computer DOES NOT get stuck at "Please Wait" like many people are talking about here. It will load to the BIOS menu.
- i have reassured that the boot sequence is happening from the hard drive first, nothing happens
- i have tried booting with onekey recovery, and in safe mode to no avail
- I have taken out and plugged back in both the hard drive and RAM cards, as well as the battery
- i have even plugged the hard drive via a USB dock into my mac to see if it will read, which it does
The only thing I havent tried is booting from a recovery CD, but I cant figure out where to get one, download one, etc. I tried ordering via the lenovo cd recovery order page but they didnt seem to have the cooresponding model number info that I have.
Please let me know what steps I should take next!
Thanks so much.

Ive buckeled and am taking it down to a local repair shop to see if they have a recovery cd they can throw in it or at least diagnose it.
Thanks for your help!
