FIXED: Lenovo Edge 15 - BIOS Bricked?

Hi, I just bought this laptop on eBay and I was doing a clean windows 10 install and i wanted to upgrade the bios version so I downloaded and ran a9cn61ww.exe and now all i get a screen that says:

 

Boot Menu:
1  ATA HDD: WDC WD10SPCX-24HWST1
2. PCI LAN: EFI Network (IPv4)
3. PCI LAN: EFI Network (IPv6)

 

I've tried restarting, f2, f8, choosing all 3 options but nothing happens I dont even get the Lenovo logo to show up. Is there any way I can fx this??

 

Laptop specs: i7-5500, 8GB Ram, 1TB Hard drive 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome,

 

What happens when you select option 1 from the boot menu?

 

If you power off then power on using the Novo button (#6 in the image below) can you access BIOS?  Reset to defaults, save, and exit?

whoa I used the Novo button and I was able to get a Novo button menu and the options are:
Normal Startup
BIOS Setup
Boot Menu
System Recovery..

I was able to enter Bios setup and load optimized defaults but it didnt fix the issue, btw choosing to boot from option 1 does nothing..
