P71: how to recover from failed Bios update using recovery USB drive?

2018-11-10, 19:48 PM

After updating my Bios (1.24) using the Thinkvantage software, my Laptop wouldnt boot anymore.  after contacting Lenovo, they sent me a recovery usb stick, but it wont start, I think it is a bios problem.  (lenovo thinks it is a corrupt windows) I have reloaded the optimised defaults, used F12 to choose usb stick but the only thing I get is the red Lenovo Screen. Is there anywhere I can find the default bios settings for the Thinkpad P71 so I can check if evrything is correct. I have an appointment with a new client Thursday and need my computer. any help would be appreciated
