So... I may have bricked my Thinkpad Edge 15. I tried updating its BIOS via the Lenovo EOL downloaded Windows files, the screen went black, waited a couple of hours for something to happen, and then turned it off. The laptop is now fundamentally dead: when you try to turn it on it just stays there, with a black screen and fans running at full speed.
It's a Thinkpad Edge 15, with Product ID 0301J6G.
Is there some kind of BIOS Recovery Mode? Read there are different procedures for different models, but cannot find anything on this particular model.

Ok, so... it seems it's a widespread problem in this generation of laptops. If you updated their BIOS through their windows updater, instead of the burned iso, you would probably lose the laptop.
