Lenovo not booting

2019-01-05, 21:36 PM

Hi all

 

Lenovo 460s is not booting. I tried several things within the bios. But nothing worked. I even do not see a repair or save boot modus...

I am very grateful for quick help.

It seems like your Windows installation got corrupted and OS reinstallation will be necessary. Do you have a backup of your data from this laptop or your data is still on T460s disk?

Yes. I have a backup of my data. But how can I reinstall Windows without CD or DVD?

If you have an USB flash disk (at least 16GB), then you can download a recovery image from Lenovo and use it to reinstall OS. Please do note, that it can be downloaded once, so please make sure to backup these files.
