@Kamilko that's great, but I don't see how they will be able to help already affected users. :/

Marcin78 seems to be onto a possible fix for users already affected. Let' give him a bit of time to confirm how he did manage to get himself out of this and we'll see.

On my side, I'm desperate, so I'm trying to burn a CD to try booting from it and see if I can reinstall ubuntu on the HDD I so intelligently wiped before realizing I was affected and couldn't actually boot from anything else...

Live update : My bios was setup to accept legacy boot from CDROM so I managed to boot from an ubuntu server cdrom (had no DVD to burn) and installed it sucessfully on my HDD ! Now I can boot into it !
Since my BIOS also chains legacy internal HDD in the boot order, I managed to enter grub, and used it to boot from a windows10 USB drive.
I'm now in the process of installing it, will keep you posted if I suceed and manage to re-flash the BIOS using lenovo's tool !
