U410-Ideapad Cannot access to BIOS - Only Menu available

Hi

My windows somehow got corrupted and only option when I boot is (see attached).  I cant get into BIOS by hitting F2 or Fn+F2. Attached

is my only option. How can I get my Windows back.

If I download windows from Microsoft I might need to enter licence key at some point during the installation. Windows 8 has that key somewhere in BIOS and it "might" not need me to enter it during the installation.

 

Any suggesitions how to resolve this?

That appears to be a Windows menu you show, so apparently it is beyond the BIOS stage.
Try each option in turn to see if any one is effective in resolving your problem.

There is BIOS update located here -> https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/IDEAPAD-U-SERIES-LAPTOPS/IDEAPAD-U4...

 

Which describe process to update BIOS. It seems that this BIOS will resolve this "Bios and boot menu can't be accessed" yet instructions says to press Fn+F2 to enter the BIOS.

 

I cant enter the BIOS thats the problem..lol

i can access Lenovo (DSmiley Happy drive via comand prompt then notepad.exe and use file explorer to browse files on this laptop. I can locate onekeyrecovery files. Can utilize this somehow?

Re: U410-Ideapad Cannot access to BIOS - Only Menu available

Afraid I haven't used Windows since 2010, XP, but the log you posted states the only problem found was:

Root cause found: 
---------------------------
Boot critical file c:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\custom\bootres.dll is corrupt.

Repair action: File repair
Result: Failed. Error code =  0x57
Time taken = 6907 ms

It used to be that one could simply download a good version of a corrupt .dll, delete the bad copy with Explorer and move the good version into its place.  It may be more formal these days, but try googling 'how replace corrupt bootres.dll' or similar and see what you find.
