I got the Ideapad 100s last year. Works great, but a Windows update screwed it up, and I can't install ANY OS anymore. When I boot 10 from my USB, it freezes on the first setup screen. Even DEBIAN! It freezes on the language setup. It started doing this sort of recently. When it freezes, the power light goes out and the caps lock light doesnt turn on, so I have to force turn it off. The UEFI doesn't give me many options to change, besides secure boot, which I've tried both on and off. I've been trying different USB's, seeing if it was the stick issues, but so far, the boot menu doesn't detect them, except one of them. I want to be able to use this again, but at the moment, I can't. Help?

Hi IAMHOBBES ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Would you have the machine number of your machine for specific details.
Expected on the machine usually are factory reset image (page 23) that user can utilize to restore back the machine.
Further described on the users manual (page 14).
Push-button reset can be launched using one of the following methods:
• Novo button: - Shut down the computer and wait at least five seconds. Press the Novo button and then
select System Recovery
Else similar discussion here may help as an option.
Update us how it goes.

Turns out it wasn't frozen after all. I just tried using a mouse, and that worked. Guess the touchpad driver wasn't installed during the setup, and the arrow keys didn't do anything.
