Lenovo ideapad Z500 - can it use a windows 10 boot disk?

I am trying to repair my laptop with a windows 10 boot disk but it is coming up with an error message. Do I have to use a Windows 8 one even though I updates to Windows 10?

Hi hdo4ever,

 

Greetings.

 

You can try a different Windows 10 repair media with the same version of your machine for repair.

Before any attempts to repair, I would suggest that you try to backed your information from your harddrive either slaving the drive on an external enclosure or booting from another live image / rescue disk. 

 

If it is unrecoverable then a clean installation may be a good opportunity to start new.

 

Regards
