Hello and welcome,
Did you download the MS "clean" install media or the Lenovo image for your machine?
Sounds like it was MS media. If so, try the Lenovo version. I can't say it will work any better but it's probably worth a shot.

Thanks. I did use the downloaded Lenovo image. I do not have the MS image.
Why is the restore program hanging a little more than 50% into the installation? Is there a BIOS setting interfereing with the system re-install?
Any other suggestions?
