I had some problems with my computer (installed linux and it did not work) and now my bios recognises only every USB stick with Kali Live on it. It does not find any other usb with other OSs, or disk or even Windows (preinstalled, I saw on kali live that all the files are working). I do not have any more any Lenovo app due to a complete formatting made to fix a previous error (I would like to have them back...)
What can I do?
Update: now it shows in bios "efi pxe network" as boot device, but when I turn on it says me "searching media" and after some time "Searching media [fail]" and something like "no bootable media found, insert media, press enter and select that media in boot menu"
Solved! Go to Solution.

It was there, as the Linux Live USB flash drive (the only device recognized) could see the files in my hard disk through Disk Usage Analyzer.
I now know more about the issue; my lenovo PC needs the Fn and F2 keys to be pressed together, not only F2. What happened was that Linux failed to find or download critical files for the GRUB boot-loader and thus did not start nor list any partitions (aside from that Linux bootable USB drive). From the F2 screen it's possible to set device boot priority and legacy-UEFI settings. Currently, for dual boot (Windows 10 - Zorin - Kali) I use Legacy Support and Legacy first, and everything runs smoothly. For whoever does not see the other OSes in the bootloader, just run in terminal sudo update-grub. Hope this clears any doubts for whoever stumbles across this, it's certainly a much more detailed solution.
