Me too no luck, but now i don't know why after fn+r it stays black for only 30 sec than reboot in normal mode (in bootloop). Maybe I do something wrong... i'll try again...

From your video I see that there are no loud beeps. And you press the keys far to short. I think that the emergency bios rewriting procedure is not starting.
My friend over the phone kept Fn+R pressed almost for 30 seconds until we could hear the first rewriting bios beeps. The beeps were very loud. Only then I told him to release the keys. After that, bios continued beeping for like 10-15 seconds. Then restarted. Did something. Restarted again and Lenovo logo was displayed and the round loading circle spined until Windows logon.
So, my advise is to keep Fn+R pressed a little more, or even 1 minute. The beeps must be heard signaling rewriting procedure had started. Maybe you could keep the keys pressed until first restart.
Give it a try. Fingers crossed

On other threads, one solution was to rewrite with an old version. Unfortunately, Lenovo say that it could brick the notebook. But yours is already bricked. So you can try, at your own risk, an older version. The previous version was 8VCN17WW, but Lenovo removed it from the net.
LE: I found 8VCN17WW here: https://support.lenovo.com/sg/ko/downloads/ds503537
I've extracted the bios file and attached here. I hope that the BIOS will not have asian characters.
!!! You can use the file at your own risk. The responsability is completly yours.

Hi, all. New member here.
I was updating my friend's laptop using the automatic driver update on the lenovo site and there was a bios update listed, it installed all drivers and then the BIOS. After the BIOS update the laptop has been in an infinite boot loop, and I've tried everything.
First I thought it was the HDD, but I tested it and it's not I even placed another one in.
I took out the CMOS battery for a few minutes, took out the laptop battery, tried the whole hard reset thing and the Pin Button on the Side (Novo Button) and it just boots up the laptop, shows the Lenovo Logo and literally crashes in the same second and reboots again, I can't access the bios or anything. I tried F12, F10 plus power button, Fn plus R plus Power Button, holding the power button, I don't know how to reset the BIOS. Another thing is that the laptop clicks whenever it crashes and boots up again (a clicking/tick sound just once per crash).

Sorry to read about your experience; certainly less than that we would normally expect you to have. We tried to replicate the issue on a system we had here but unfortunately the BIOS updated successfully leaving us somewhat puzzled. One thing I would like to suggest trying is to hold the power button depressed, usually on this system this would provoke a boot loop with the system booting to the logo and then restarting. If the system enters the boot loop, keeping the power button depressed, use a pin to press the Novo button and also keep that depressed.
Hopefully, as a result of the above, the system will present the Novo menu enabling you to select and enter BIOS where we would then suggest selecting Setup defaults and rebooting to see what happens. If you had manually installed the system please ensure you make any changes in the BIOS you might have previously made before rebooting.
Please let us know how you get on, thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply
Unfortunately, this combination didn't help me.
Even when the button (s) (power, novo) is pressed continuously, the boot loop remains.
Is there still a chance for a home solution?
