This all started with one of many power issues that many others have experienced with this model. In attempting to resolve that issue I tried the recommened BIOS update. Now its a brick.
BIOS update probably failed becasue the power was not sufficient or constant.
I researched and seen some old BIOS recovery options for other Lenovo models but nothing specifically for this model. I tried the Fn+B and Fn+R but haven't found any specific steps to get a USB drive setup for this model. I seen the Phoenix Wincrisis options but I'm unable to get it to write to the USB drive for some reason, and I 'm not even sure if this model has a Phoenix BIOS.
Any help is appreciated. I'm about to buy a motherboard for this thing but wanted to reach out here first.
Any help is appreciated,
