Z570 - Bios does not open after deleting duplicate boot entries

Hello experts, Hope you are doing well.

I had installed Windows 8.1 Pro. Along with it, I had tried to install Linux with it. After complete linux installation when I rebooted, I was getting duplicate boot entries in bios setup. I have searched on internet and found this tutorial to delete duplicate entries.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...=ws.10%29.aspx

I have deleted the boot entries using this tutorial and restarted but now after restart, it stuck on the Lenovo welcome page and says, Press F2 to enter setup and F12 to enter MultiBoot Menu. On pressing F2 or F12, it says "Please Wait" and nothing happens after that.

Please help me. I am stuck here and my laptop is of no use right now because of this.

 

I have Lenovo Ideapad Z570.

Thanks and Regards

Try uninstalling Linux and see if you can boot in Windows.

So you still can't boot to Windows?

No. It stucks on the Lenovo Screen and on pressing F2 or F12, it keeps saying "Please Wait".

And you still have those entries in the bios? How did you reinstall windows? Through the NOVO button or just using an installer.

Thats the problem. I could not go into bios. When I press F2 to go into bios, Please wait appears and its forever.

For installing videos, I had taken out hdd. Formatted it using another laptop and then inserted it in another lenovo laptop and installed the windows through DVD.
