I tries the B methos also, with FAT32 and again with FAT, named the file 

ACLU1X64.fd

ACLU1X64.FD

ACLU1X64.ROM

ACLU1X64.BIN

ACLU1X64.WPH

 

Tried the Fn+R when powering on, tried the Windows+B, had a bit more luck by

1/ entering the bios

2/ reseting to optimized default 

3/ go to security tab and ther appears a setup mode, entered the setup mode

4/ save and exit setup from bios

5/ in the few seconds it's down, press Fn+R and keep pressing until it power up

6/ you'll hear beeps, release the Fn+R

 

But still no luck, it finally loads the Lenovo Logo and keeps looping on the message "ubuntu boot failed" written in grey inside a blue box...

Re: Ubuntu 17.10 corrupts Lenovo BIOS - USB not recognized + not saving new BIOS settings

Found it interesting Ubuntu notes this as a known issue in 17.10 but how many read the known issues or simply upgrade from a older Version. It basically bricked my IdealPad 110 to a point I would have to pay Lenovo to reflash Bios correctly. Strangely this has something to do with a Intel hardware driver? All I know is I am looking for another laptop and it won’t be a Lenovo or have Ubuntu installed. I’m still dumbfounded at how a OS can even corrupt a bios like this.

I sent to local technician to reflash the bios.
It is a tedious task to do. You need to hot air the chip out from the mobo and need to make sure that you didnt damage any component around. Then use eeprom-flash-bios-usb-programmer to reflash the chip. I would strongly advise you to seek your local computer shop for assistant. You need a steady hand and if not the mobo is aint cheap to replace.
